Okay, so I didn't get my ipad during the holidays. I went to Best Buy and couldn't get anyone to help me one day and went back another day and it was a zoo! After reading on one of these threads there maybe a new one coming out in March 2013, I'm thinking I may wait. I've looked on line and have seen there are rumors of one coming out that will be thinner and lighter. Is Apple going to come out with new iPads every 6 months? I'm going to wait til March since it's not that far away, but won't wait longer than that.
No matter when you buy just around the corner is the newest and best. I gave up and just bought when I wanted one. If I don't look at the new I won't know any difference. Right now I am having fun with the 4
I got a third generation (March 2012 with retina display) as a refurb on Apple.com and could not be happier. Seems brand new and came with the same warranty. Highly recommend looking into this. I ended up getting one as a gift for my parents too. Beautiful screen and the Face Time to connect with family far away is awesome.
If you keep waiting you will be waiting the iPad99, just buy one now and enjoy it.
I have the 2 and 3 and love them both!!
Arguing with a fool only proves there are two! But often you get answers!
At least with the 4 out now there are some upgrades with the cameras, resolution, Siri and microphone on keyboard for speech . Why wait have fun now
I have the 2 and am waiting for the thinner/lighter iPad, which is rumored to be out in March. I like to splurge on a nice case and with the sizes changing, I'm waiting for something I can have for more than a year. I've had the iPad 2 since July of 2011.
Why would you only have an iPad for a year? Just because a new model is released doesn't mean you have to buy it.
I've waited this long so I'm going to hold out until March. I'm not waiting past that.
