I am buying an iPad for the family this Christmas. I found two open box deals for sale at Bestbuy, in perfect condition. Both are 32g and priced at $502 & $396. I like the idea of the latest and greatest but the $106 dollar savings off the 3 could go toward accessories. People seam to notice the improvements in the 4 but nobody sounds like they are blown away. My family will surf the web, consume media, view photos, children's games. I would like to play a game or two on the ipad but am not a gamer. I am leaning toward the 3 because the price is $200 off the price that Apple was asking for a brand new iPad 3 when it was released half a year ago.
