I'm a University student and this past semester I decide that and iPad would be the way to go. I haven't bought one yet and with my Birthday in Decemeber and Christmas coming up my girlfriend has said she wants to get me one. However now I am at a dilemma as to what to do. If she was to get me one, I told her she's not aloud to go spending the extra money on the 3G model. So it would be the base 16GB Wifi I got. (Im not exactly sure if I would use 3G as almost everywhere I go I has Wifi) I also know the iPad is due for update early next year (buyers guide suggests only if you need one) so would it be stupid to let her buy me one? and just buy the new one next year myself. After all university is finished for the year and starts next February so I don't really need it until then. Basically I like the idea of getting it for free of course (even though ill spend the same one her) and having it sooner but I also like the idea of a iPad 3 with the 3G and going to my first product launch. The only other thing bugging me is I tend to talk myself out of buying expensive things I want. Making me think if i waited i could end up just not getting it all cause of my cheapness. Any suggestions?
