    Just wondering what people think. I have the ipad 2 and it is fine but space is limited as it is the 32gb. Was thinking about the 4 with 64gb and from what I have seen the 5 will be nice but is it really worth holding out for. Thoughts appreciated.

    Just You Wait!

    Absolutely wait! It's very close to release now. I also have a 2 (at 64 gigs) and am anxiously waiting for a 128GB iPad 5. So hang on! Might as well get the best, this close!!

    wait..it is torture:)

    I have the 2 and was thinking about selling it and using money to buy 4 as I am going on vacation soon..the bigger issue is my wife's birthday is end of this month and she has my old ipad 1..so I was going to get her the 4 but waiting will be too long for the birthday.

    She's Understanding, Right?

    Just tell her you're gonna get her the NEW ONE, even though it will be after her birthday. I think you'll have NO problem!

    Well, Yes, But...

    You're probably right about October, Moorashj.... So then, just tell her you love her, and ASK her what she would prefer... Buy now, or wait? Problem solved!

    I admire everyone's patience here. I have been wanting an iPad for 1 month. Eventually caved and got a 4th gen. Of course in my case I had to give my iPad off to my mom as I was moving to a new country. Couldn't stay without an iPad any longer!

    to wait..really...

    Okay so with all the rumors going around about this new ipad I am hearing thinner, a most likely faster running ipad, and better battery..maybe a better camera...

    Okay so in response, thinner is nice but at some point they are going to run out of thinness and it will be non-existant:D. Is there really going to be that much of a difference? Faster? Really going to be that much faster? Anything now would be faster than what we have. Battery, always good but is it a deal breaker? Camera, never used the camera on my ipad....so more of a toy part of the ipad.

    I'm afraid at some point there is going to be a limit on what these things can do....

    You could get her an Apple gift card for her birthday, so it's up to her to wait :)

    Sure, but we are not there yet!

    I have the iPad 3, and am looking forward to the rumored thinner and lighter iPad 5. The mini's screen is a bit too small for me, and while the screen size of the 3 is perfect, it gets a bit heavy if I carry it around all day. Since your wife is still using the 1, she is going to be ectastic with how light the 5 is, should she decide to wait for it.

    Nice! I also just got mine (on Wednesday afternoon!) and it is a brilliant device! Absolutely enjoying using it - particularly in terms of satisfying my core intent of buying it.

    What I did was got the fourth gen today at RadioShack cause I needed to have an ipad(well more like wanted)

    There return policy is 30 days so if I return it next month and then buy another at a different location I'll have an ipad till the next gen releases in most likely October. Evil I know :D

    Sort of in the same boat. I have a 16GB iPad 3 at the moment. I won this iPad over a year ago and 16GB is definitely not enough. I had a 32GB iPad 1 before that and passed that along to my partner. I am now considering moving on to a 64 or 128 GB iPad 4. Part of me is saying to wait for the 5, part of me is saying to get the 4 already.

    Since I have an 64GB iPad mini and a 32GB iPhone 5 having the lightning adaptor on everything would be a plus and I have a really nice iPad case from Coach, that if I went with the iPad 5, would probably not work well with.

    I can't imagine how much more they can add into the iPad 5 that would make me regret buying a 4. It's already faster than the 3, so that is good. As for the camera, I never use the camera on either iPad that I already have, so that is not a deal breaker. The only thing I could see that would be great would be the new form factor, but then the case I have would not work.

    In that case, why not wait until the 5 is announced? If you decide that the new features of the 5 aren't enticing, you could get the 4 for cheaper than you can get it now.
