It would have at least been as nice to get same camera as iphone 5.
Maybe they still had truckloads of previous model and wanted to use them?

So should I get it?

I'm an Ipad Newbie. School starts in march for me (i'm well out of high school but do help and give me your suggestions!), Should I wait to buy the new Ipad? Will there be an upgrade or a tweak by then?? I would most DEFINITELY not be happy if something like that happened right after I buy the product.

or should i get the surface.?

  • The current iPhones and iPods now use the new connector but the 3rd part of the iOS empire did not.
My theory? The "old" new iPad was rushed. They want their iPad line to have ubiquity with charging, etc. They weren't ready when the "old" new iPad launched with the beefed up cpu/gpu either. Now they are releasing what SHOULD have been released originally with absolutely ZERO fanfare so as not to give the public the idea that they would ever rush a product to market.

Let's also not forget the killer Nexus 10, and if that doesn't float your boat, the Windows Slate that are right here for Zmas shopping frenzy as well. I have only had first hand experience with the latter, but it is VERY good. Far vetter than I expected it to be.

I'd get a surface, no doubt.

And it's not just me who thinks so ... just look through the forums and you will see that many people are pissed off about it.
I see entitled people.
