    Default Splurge on an iPad2 or wait for the iPad3?

    My parents asked us to get them one, but do you think they should wait until the newer version comes out? Been looking into it and rumours say that it'll come out late Feb. But those are only rumours.

    I wonder what the new features will be.

    I did a bit of seating and it doesn't sound like anyone knows for sure what the new unit will have. It sounded like a new screen technology may be used but beyond that everything they are saying is what someone thinks it might have. Wait and see I guess.

    That's what I found too. I guess a couple of months isn't too far away.

    I'm trying my best to convince Chris that I need a new IPad, and that since the 3 is coming soon I'm would be prepared to wait longer than I really want
    My pleas are falling on deaf ears though

    I'm a giant Apple fan since the 80's...

    My advice to you: unless you're a tech junkie, I'd say you have two choices - if you really want something now, get the iPad2. If you can wait until about April or so, then wait for the iPad3 release and get the iPad2 for much less.

    If you're a tech junkie and a 2046x1536 resolution machine makes a big difference to you... or you want to start a love affair with Siri (which, even a tech junkie like myself can't find much use for in a tablet - I mean, outside of the "Computer, set a course for the Delta quadrant" coolness factor)... then by all means, wait until April and get the iPad3.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    FYI... There was NO price reduction on the original iPad when the iPad2 came out so don't bet the farm that you will get an iPad 2 cheap just because the iPad 3 is out.

    Knowing my parents, they'd probably play with it for the first month or so then forget about it after. Either that, or my bro who still lives with them will hog it. lol. Or my sis who just moved out will take it.

    Actually, my sis and I bought them a Keurig. But they asked if I can return it and get them an iPad instead because they like their old coffee maker. They promised to pay me the diff seeing they want the 64gig one. Kinda sad when parents have more up to date technology than their kids.
