Welcome to Gaia! ::

So the announcement for the new iPad was today and here it is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XAMHCB7b6M.

Anybody planning on getting this or are you going to wait for the next one?

As for me, I'll probably be getting this. Though I'm a bit disappointed that it looks exactly the same as the iPad 2. I was hoping that the screen edges would be a bit smaller but eh, I'm still pretty excited to get this!
Why anyone would throw so much money away on such a limited device is beyond me. neutral

As a mac enthusiast I'd like to point out that the mac fans pre-ipad were very disappointed in the designs. The aesthetic look is similar to the older ones but inside the specs are actually very different. When it comes to mac computers you'll not see much different aesthetically pleasing designs but the features are keeping up to date with the latest available technology that they can come out with and release.

My suggestion is to choose an flip screen laptop that also works as a laptop. The price difference from the ipad is not that far out and would allow you to run more programs and not specifically apps.

Though with the differences in systems it may actually be easier just to get a tablet whether its apple or not. Price and personal preferences determines if the system is worth it.

For me is the same sh*t that iPad 2. The only thing that change a little is the system. I don't wanna get it, but I want a mac.

Yeah, I agree. I was really disappointed that they didn't change the look at all nor do they seem to call this an actual iPad3. It's basically the same thing that happened with the iPhone 5 only they just called it the iPhone 4S. Pretty lame in my opinion.

Thread existed yesterday.

Double the screen dimensions, More than double the processing power, Possibly more RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE... I'd say more than nothing changed wink Oh, and maintaining the same battery life of 10 hours, and 9 hours on 4G.

pricing
We're talking $499 for 16GB! 32GB is $599 and 64GB for $699. Sorry, no 128GB yet.
If you want 4G it's $629, $729 and $829.

@ Baelnal:
Some people buy Apple products because of the aesthetics and design, and not so much on the tech specs. From the macbook air to the Mac Pro, the design is unmatched in the industry. (Personal opinion, of course) But this isn't a mac vs PC thread, or an Android versus iOS thread.

Oh well I didn't see it on the main page. I obviously didn't want to bother going through all the pages to find an already existing thread so I figured there wasn't one already made. Sorry!

I bought the 32gb iPad. I really don't see the need for a 128gb tablet. 64GB is quite a lot already.

Yeah, I bought the iPad when it first came out, same for the iPad 2.
I've decided that I only need the 16gb version, especially with iCloud. 16GB, White, Verizon 4G version for me!

Sweet! I got a Verizon black, 32gb with 4G. This will be my first time owning an iPad.
I'm thinking about getting this, I'm a web developer so It would be nice to try my sites on it. The resolution is a nice touch I think that might get me to buy it. I hope if ios6 comes out that they will let us update to it without having to jailbreak it.

Kindles are e-readers. i-Pads are more tablet PCs. Apples and Oranges. Apples and Oranges.
