iPad 3 refurb is the BEST value right now

Improvements to the iPad 4 over the iPad 3


1. New A6X chip with 1.4 GHz dual core processor with Quad Core Graphics
with a Geekbench score of 1766 over the iPad 3 score of 757

2. Lightning Connector

3. Front Camera is updated but is still 1.2 MP with a higher than VGA front shooter in the iPad 3

4. WiFi improvement supporting dual-band (2.4 and 5 Ghz) May or may not see any improvements

Right now, in would hugest to wait. The iPad's released this year will cover the losses from iPhone 5S. I am however more excited for the iPad Mini Second generation. With the rumored retina display and upgraded specs, there will be no separation between the two except for screen size & price.

Would you buy the iPad 4 right now or wait?
you should wait until the iPad 7 comes out. It will be better than any of these!
Oh, are you supposed to be ?
How cute!
