    Tempted!
    But I think I've read somewhere that there's only going to be 25% improvement in terms of speed.
    If I buy it when it comes out, it's purely greed manipulated by good marketing psychology.

    Not me. I feel like my Air is barely broken in.

    Only if it has 2gb ram or more. Air is otherwise great as is.

    No - I will be selling my Air and getting a Surface Pro with 8GB of RAM instead.
    I'm sick of the slow/non-existent multitasking, apps crashing, and safari reloading tabs. (or not reloading them and just displaying an empty tab in iOS8)

    This has been a problem on my iPad 2, iPad 3, and now my iPad Air.
    It's unacceptable and I don't know why I put up with it for so long.

    And a anti-glare or anti-reflective screen?

    Nope, no upgrade for me. My Air runs like a champ and does me good. Extra RAM isn't enough to get me to update. I've never had any safari reload issues or memory problems anyways. I keep my tablets for a while and this will be no exception.

    Only if it has 2gb of RAM since I cannot multi-task in this device. Since the iPhones don't have and they share the same chip, i highly doubt we'll see 2gb ram for the Air

    Only if it has 2gb ram and supports split screen apps.

    Before you sell your iPad Air, purchase your Windows 8.1 tablet and see if you like using it as a consumption device. I don't find mine as easy to use. No I don't have a Surface, but I do have an HP Omni 10 with two gigs of RAM. I do like the tablet, it works perfectly fine and use it as a productivity device but it is simply not as convenient to use as aconsumption device.
