Brought my iPad2 from target for $499 with $40 target gift card 30 days ago, and I can return it for $459 and keep the gift card, should I do it and get the iPad3, my iPad2 is on 5.01 and jailbreak.

yeah dude, the most noticeable update is the hi-res display the new ipad is sporting.

Compare a 3GS screen and iPhone 4 and that will help you decide.

Why are you even asking this question? Yes of course, you should spend the same amount of money but get a much better product.

3GS was never high def so there was need for a huge improvement, iPad 2 has high def screen so I don't think the difference will be that huge like it was from 3GS to 4. None the less the new iPad screen will be slick.

I think there will be a huge difference from the old iPad screen to the new one. 132 PPI to 264 PPI. I was always disgusted with the iPad screen after being spoiled with my iPhone 4 and 4S. I'm so glad that they finally put in the retina display so I'm upgrading my iPad 1. After seeing the iPhone I promised I would never buy another iPad until they put in a retina display haha.

To the OP, don't even think about it go for it and return it.

I would, FWIW, you could return it and rebuy a new one and still come out on top, even with the GC taken off, b/c $399 + tax is still cheaper than a $459 or w/e that you pay.

Geez, that really is a no-brainer - of course you should return it!
