In certain way I would, but just only for the A6X. I dont care much about the lightning port and such, but if I had bought the iPad 3 (which costs a LOT, almost like a windows laptop or mac mini if you get the bigger storage models) I would feel like I just threw 500$ to the rubbish. The A6X will bring a noticeable difference, specially in the future iOS 7 and 8 updates. Ipads are not cheap by any means. 500$ is the cheapest one. Imagine someone who bought the 32GB WIFI + LTE or the 64GB. That feeling would just be terrible.
