I was planning to go buy a 5th gen, but there are a few reasons I'd prefer to stick to the old design. I love the old aluminium back and black front from the first 4 generations. Plus I also prefer the older metal hinge smart covers, which I have a few of. And no chamfered edge, that thing was just annoying to keep it looking good on my mini and its scuff on my iPhone 5! I was wondering if now is a good time to buy a refurb iPad 4 or will the price drop even more when the iPad air comes out?
