Sell iPad 4 now and buy the iPad 5?

Should I sell my iPad 4 now and buy the iPad 5 in March?

Thanks for any comments.

You will get the most money if you sell now, but snce there is no guarantee the 5 will be out in March so you could be iPad-less for 6 months.

Agreed. Right now there is no concrete evidence that a new iPad will be released in March. It is a gamble, but the choice is yours to make.

I am going to sell my 3rd generation iPad at some point in february. It is a risk but if you can get by without your iPad for a while then I see no problem.

Thanks for any comments.

The iPad 4 is only a few months old and is being refreshed next week. The iPad 5 won't be out until after the summer and after the iPhone 5S.

Sell now, but you'll be sat waiting until September / October at the earliest. Besides the resale value holds up after the new ones are announced mostly anyway so why sell now regardless.
