    Got my eye on my first ipad and have 3 ques:
    A) looking at the 4th Gen wifi only - should I get now or wait for the new ver which I hear is coming in the fall

    B) how does an ipad open epubs if the epub is not from the apple store?

    C) does the white turn a different color if I have a smart case?

    I think he means if the look of the white design would change when covered by some transparent-like case?

    What I was wanting to know is does a white Ipad change its colour or fade after a while?
    I so badly want the black but my wife insists we get the white, which I cannot stand. I have visions of it turning yellow after a period of time.

    A) Id definitely suggest waiting. You can either get the new iPad 5, or get the iPad 4 for cheaper. Waiting seems like a win win.

    B) I do believe iBooks can open any ePub file

    C) The white stays white. I dont think Ive seen an iPad that has yellowed.

    Is there any generation of Ipad I should avoid?

    I just noticed Apple refurb just posted up the 3rd gen for $379......? Or should I go for nothing less than 4th gen and beyond...? :confused:

    I would choose a 4th gen over the 3rd for the specs and new connector style. You should be able to find a deal used.

    If money is no issue then you can wait for iPad 5. It is mucho better than iPad 3 and 4...lightness to hold, better processor, and maybe better camera. :apple:

    The white will stay white. But keep in mind that only the bezel around the front is white. The back of both the black iPad 4 and the white iPad 4 is silver.

    I would definitely wait until the new one is released in a couple of months.
