Hello! This isn't really for me, but for my mom. She received an iPad (1st Gen) in 2010. Now, when she uses it, it crashes with everything, very slow/sluggish. Typing on it is really a struggle because, well it lags with that too. I want to give her an iPad for her birthday [July 20th]. But she wants 'the latest and greatest', which wouldn't come until September/October, at least, this is what I'm guessing. I don't really want her to wait until Christmas for a new iPad. She uses it everyday as her main 'computer' and even I can't stand to use the thing for 10 minutes. You think the iPad Retina is good enough? Or is the next update really something special for us to just wait?
