    It's not about upgraders.

    Yes, I'll upgrade. As mentioned, retina display, double processor life, Siri, and 4G likely. For $500 to $800, it's a no brainer. Gift the iPad 2 to someone grateful and buy the new one. Pay for it in a month with the productivity it provides.

    But it's not about upgraders. It's about the 70 million people in the next year who will say "You know, I need a tablet. What's the best tablet out there? OK, I'll get it."

    If history holds, about 80% of those people will buy whatever iPad Apple is selling the day they decide to buy a tablet.

    That nets Apple ~~ $50+M tablets, Amazon about 10M Kindle Fires, and maybe 10M for the rest of the pack to divide.

    I would like to have a 3G version. Right now I have the wifi only version. Was thinking of adding hotspot to my AT&T account, but really don't want to give up my unlimited data plan I'm currently grandfathered in right now. Still... It might be the cheaper option.

    I gave up my unlimited plan when I got my wifi iPad. I looked at my history and hadn't used more the 2 gigs in months. It made more since for me since I'm very rarely anywhere that doesn't have an available wifi signal.

    I feel selfish now lol

    With the resale value of Apple products I've always sold my old device to pay for a new one. In most cases I can sell it for enough to buy my new one and have a little extra.

    Maybe I'll consider gifting next time lol

    Not even close! I looked on Craigslist and eBay to see how much I could get for my 1st gen. It's still in the 300 range. A refurb on Apple is 399. If the 1st gen hasn't hit playbook pricing, the 2nd gen isn't even gonna be close.

    That's what I did except I got it in the refurbished section of the apple store. It was an extra $50 bucks off.

    I've got a buyer for my iP1 for $300, so I guess I'm going to bite the bullet and put a couple of hundred with it and get the 3. Should be a pretty substantial upgrade from the iP1.

    Is your iPad 1 16, 32, or 64?

    See this is my problem. I was all set to just get the iPad 2 since there were not a lot of changes and it was easier on my budget. Now the more I think about the disappointing feeling i get looking at other peoples phone after staring at my retina display, I'm second guessing myself.

    It reminds me of how I never cared about HD until my old tv finally died and I was forced to upgrade. Now I find myself searching for things to watched based on what's on HD. LOL

    Personally I don't see the difference between my retina display iPhone and my current iPad so the double resolution of the new iPad wasn't a concern for me. I decided to just save the money. If you really do see a difference I would at least get my hands on the new iPad and make a comparison that way rather than pre-order and possibly end up with something you did not need.

    Good point. The display on my current one isn't bad that's why I started to think this one must be amazing. Wonder when they'll have them in the Apple stores?
