I am always an apple upgrader (all the versions of the phone, all but the first generation of the mba, and both the new 11 and 13", apple tv's, etc etc). But since I only use my ipad infrequently and I didn't see any compelling spec differences, like a better screen, I decided not to upgrade. Finally I went into the store and played with one. Darn. It is a much smaller feeling form factor. It is much nicer to handle and use. And I didn't want to think that. So I ordered one. Ah well. My apple stock better perform.
