    iPad 4 won't be out until next spring. However, there may be a ~7" iPad later this year if rumor is correct.

    As the previous poster mentioned the 4 won't be out until Spring of next year. If you need one now buy the iPad 3 or a refurb iPad 2.

    I have a 1 and 3 and the difference is vast. The 3 as everyone knows has the Retina screen superfast processor and quality camera. I don't know what will be included in the next model but I am sure it will be minor. The 3 has way surpassed my expectations and doubt if I will look to update untill a big leap In tech.

    If its in stock it's obsolete.

    Don't wait. Just get the best "the New iPad" that you can get. It's well worht it for the Retina display alone.

    The CPU in both the iPad 2 and 3 are the same. The A5X in the iPad 3 is there just to support the higher resolution of the retina display. Performance wise it's a wash between the iPad 2 and 3.
