    Goddamn it, Apple.

    ... I might sell mine and buy a laptop, instead.

    Just got the 3rd Gen a few months ago. Not spending money on this thing, these updates are getting insane.

    Bought 5 new iPads for the folks in our office 2 weeks ago.

    Luckily they are still in the wrapper and I got them through Best Buy....

    They really wanted a new generation of iPad. Possibly the shortest lifespan of any iDevice generation.

    Apple really do only care about money!! Im'a keep my 3rd gen!! Still a great product.

    When people stop queuing up Apple might not rip off customers anymore. They knew in march they would release another iPad in Oct but still released the 3rd gen iPad to rake in money!! They they want people to spend again for a slight bump in performance!! Not me i'm out

    Fairly minor spec bump and changing out the connector is going to make people unhappy?

    2x faster processor, 2x faster wifi, same battery life, more cellular coverage, lighter, seems like more than 'minor spec bump.'

    unlikely; they probably did this to bring some of the refreshes in line (everything gets refreshed in the late summer/fall)
