    Launch day iPad 2 owner...Cannot see needing anymore in a tablet than what I am getting with my iPad 2. All I do is browse the web and play an occasional game. Quad core means nothing to me with my usage. Better screen would be cool, but iP2 screen is fine...

    That's completely fine if the iPad 2 is more than enough for you. I'm sure it is for many. But you don't need to act like you're better than us for that.

    So what you're saying is different people have different needs and expectations? Fascinating.

    Sounds like even the iPad2 might be more than you need. I've got the first model. Do you want to trade?

    No way...Everyone must have the same needs and expectations as me. You're speaking blasphemy!

    I dont want that, so you can't have it.

    You don't have an iPad 1, which has got too laggy and crashes a lot with iOS 5.0.1, which many people have.

    So in that instance for me anyways, an upgrade is due.

    why do people waste valuable space and create a meaningless thread like this?

    Who is buying an iPad 3, but not immediately, but maybe in 1 month. Can we get a poll going? All the iPad 3 buyers NOT on launch day please respond.

    seriously, this stuff gets old....no one cares that you're not buying one!

    I have never had a problem with mine. Even 5.1 beta is stable.

    You get these people every year! The people who really want to upgrade their previous generation device, but look for others support to get them thru the excitement.

    Oh good, another "I'm not buying the new iPad because of reason (a) and reason (b)" thread.

    When everyone knows that the actual reason for not buying the new iPad is reason (c):

    I have no money and I'm creating a thread about it to reconcile my cognitive dissonance.

    Why does this matter? I could not care less whether or not someone else is buying the latest and greatest as well as the reasons that support their decision. If you want the new iPad, for whatever reason, then buy it. If you want it but can't afford it, save up your money or dream a little dream and be happy with whatever you have. If you have no desire to upgrade, then don't. Why does it matter if you (or anyone else) thinks that the upgrade is "worth" opening your wallet for?

    I don't post much, but I am an avid reader on these forums. It amazes me how many posts there are that seem to be driven by people justifying their choices (white or black, 128gig being too "needed" or not, ordering online or standing in line, etc). Why? It's one thing to read about why a person desires more storage for their iPad and another to read why a person doesn't understand why someone could ever possibly need most storage on their iPad. We are all different. My needs are not yours. And heck, my "needs" may not even be actual "needs" by definition, but they are things I want and feel I deserve so they qualify for me. No one "needs" an iPad. You would not die without one. But that does not mean that I am not allowed to be enthralled with the device and use it for every purpose that is possible in order to suit my life.

    I don't "need" to upgrade. I bought my iPad 2 in November of 2011. It's awesome. But I want to upgrade and I have the financial means to comfortably do so, so I probably will. I don't feel I have to justify my reasons, nor do I think you need to justify yours for not purchasing.

    To be honest.

    I want the Samsung Galaxy note 10.1 when it comes.

    I want the Wacom stuff as I could use it. I think to include the pen is a really good idea. Others of course, may disagree; just my preference.

    Owning both is a bit much, although it's tempting :D

    I very likely won't be buying the iPad 3, I sold my iPad 2 16gb for 470$, and I don't see any real reason to buy the iPad 3. Unless they blow my socks off with something no rumors mentioned, I will be buying either a upgraded iPad 2, or a Transformer Prime.

    For supposedly not caring, some of you put a lot of effort and hostility into that not caring...
