I remember when the iPad 4 came out, all of the 3 owners went stir crazy. Now fast forward a few months and those that withstood the temptation to upgrade are in a great position. We can look forward to the iPad 5 which will be a complete redesign. Not only that but our iPad still works great with the A5X processor. Around this time we would be faced with selling our current iPad for the newest one, but since the iPad 4 release delayed the schedule, we can maximize our use with the 3 for longer than the usual 1 year cycle.
