    So my 11 day old ipad 3 is now not so new. Should I replace it with the 4 since I'm in the 30 day return window?

    yeah, why have money in to something that's older if you don't have to?

    You'd be crazy to keep it.

    Return it.

    Wait a few more weeks and get the iPad 4.

    I wish I'm in your spot.

    Might as well. It'll be the same price.

    YES! Why would you wanna keep something that's just been outdated?

    If you're going to keep the iPad 3 for a long time, yes, return it and spend the same amount on an upgraded pad. If you upgrade all the time anyway, you'll have to weigh: do I go a week and a half without my iPad vs. long term speed.

    For me, if I had just purchased one, I'd return and get the new one.

    Unless you're adverse to having to have a new connector, yes.

    So my next question is this ... I didn't buy it from an apple store. I got it from an apple retailer when I was out of town. I'll be leaving again on the 1st so I won't be able to actually take it in for a return/replacement.

    Any thoughts?

    Order a new one once the pre-order starts and return your current ipad when it arrives (if Nov 2 is still within your 30 day window)

    Or, if you're happy with it, go to the refurb store and order the exact model you have now at a dramatic discount. Return yours. A bit more work, but you are at least getting a used iPad for your used iPad and you are paying for less than a new iPad 2...
