    I flipping hate em. Don't even want to know about them. I really hope the iPad 3 doesn't come out till next year. I don't want my baby to be outdated this fast. :mad:

    If, and it's a big if, these rumors have any credence it's that Apple would introduce a higher-end model. It's the only way to make sense of it all. Apple would not replace the existing line this soon - that's too preposterous. A new model is only slightly more plausible because the technology isn't there yet; but stranger things have happened.

    If I hated them, I wouldn't be starting a thread about it. I simply enjoy using the technology I have now, and if new stuff comes out I check it out then.

    I wouldn't like it, but I have had my ipad2 for about 4 months and have enjoyed it very much. I have learned to stop waiting on rumors - instead I enjoy things in the 'now'. We'd never enjoy technology if we kept waiting for the next big thing...

    The nice thing about Apple tech is they hold their value pretty well compared to the others...

    Do you not have the option to return it with 14 days or so? What do you have t lose? Worse case is that you buy the iPad2 again. :p

    I got mine from another source with a Smart Cover for over $100 off retail + tax... I'm indifferent either way, but wanted to voice my opinion...

    I think its awesome. I just hope its not super expensive when it comes out. If its worth upgrading, just sell the old one, buy the new one. Done & done. :)

    Being a photographer, a higher resolution screen appeals to me (if that rumor pans out). Otherwise I'd just get an iPad 2 and not worry about it.

    I can guarantee it won't be cheaper than the current prices of iPads, so what is "not super expensive"? I find spending $499++ to be a pretty hefty penny...

    Aint bothered really. Picked up a 32GB White iPad2 Wi-fi the other day for my first iPad as my MBP has died and I'll be without it for a while.

    Loving it so far and perfectly happy with it. Only reason I'll buy the iPad 3 is if Julianne Hough delivers it to me :eek:

    Buy today enjoy today.

    To me it doesn't matter if they come out with a new one. Technology is an ever changing process.
    I am enjoying the ipad2 today even more now that it's jailbroken.

    No true

    When Apple announced the iPad 2, they specifically said "2011 is the Year of the iPad 2" so they would never release an iPad 3 this year. Maybe, just maybe there will be a iPad 2 HD but I doubt it. They should save the retina display for the iPad 3.

    Even if they make an HD, i think it'd be like a 1280x800 or something and not one of those 2XXXx1XXXX resolutions as others have claimed, because there are not many of those types of monitors or even TVs out yet... Either way, I think it is all rumors, the iPad 3 when it comes up should get, what I think, Retina w/ 1280x800 or something along these lines, probably 5MP camera w/ 1080P video, 1GB RAM and Quad-Core processor. And that should do it, maybe a diff. design, but the current iPad 2 is already thin enough.

    It worries me.

    I sold my 1 before 2 was officially announced. Good thing because the resale value plummeted once the word got out.

    I'm going to hold off a little while longer this time because iOS 5 holds a lot of promise for the device I have now. A better camera, faster ram, and thinner build won't sway me to the 3 just yet.

    Still, I'd rather get the most money for the 2 as I can.

    I looked at the title, and thought about it. Honestly, I don't think I would care if they did. I bought the iPad 1 on launch day, and I loved it. I bought the iPad 2 on launch day to replace my iPad 1, and I don't really use the iPad 2's features to notice the difference between my iPad 1 and iPad 2. I hardly ever facetime, and I usually take pics with my DSLR or iPhone 4. Other than that... I just use it for email, web surf, and stream. I don't regret getting the iPad 2 and I love it... but if they came out with one in September, I'll pass with no mad feelings... and just buy next years model.

    I'd be fine with it coming out in the fall, because I had to return my iPad 2 recently. I want something new when I'm ready to buy one again.

    Really? Another thread?

    The rumor, even in the case of a 'high end' model, lacks credibility as it would effectively mean release of a product which fails to conform to the quality of the iPad 2 in holistic terms. Speed, battery life, physical size, or some combination of those elements would be compromised using existing technology and next generation parts are not arriving until 2012. It would be uncharacteristic of Apple to proceed in such a fashion, especially considering this market primarily trades upon things like platform integration, aesthetics, and UI design rather than hardware superiority and it is on this basis that Apple has dominated the tablet market.

    In more personal terms, even supposing Apple did release such a device this year, I would at the earliest be interested in an iPad 3 as I wouldn't want anything less than next-gen architecture driving a display that is 4x the resolution of the current iPad anyway.
