    I thought you were skipping the 5th gen. What happened to that?

    Well I guess if it is within the return period, that means it was recently purchased. So like the previous person asked for details, that helps understand why the 4 was bought in the first place whilst the 5 is right around the corner.

    Must be swell to have the world revolve around you.

    Sorry to burst your bubble Snow, but the iPad 5 is going to be less powerful than the iPad 4. iPad 4 prices are going to skyrocket soon.

    Yep, just look at the iPad 3. Graphically slower than the iPad 2.

    Newer != better.

    Knowing that a next generation iPad (iPhone, iMac,....) will be the most powerful to date doesn't require any thinking.:D

    I honestly think this is just a perception that was spread here. On paper the GPU of the A5X should have completely offset the increase in pixels. Has it ever been objectively proven that the iPad 2 out performs the 3 graphically? Having said that I did get rid of my 3 pretty quickly when the 4 came out.

    Does the iPad 5 have a higher resolution screen that will tax its GPU more than the GPU on the iPad 4?

    Humm.... I have a mini now and want a iPad 5. But based on Apple polices I could go pick up a 4 today, enjoy that until the 5 comes out then just return it. ;)

    It wasn't as noticeable unless playing games, however on iOS 7 - if you put an iPad 2 and iPad 3 next to each other, the 2 will be significantly more responsive UI-wise.

    Nobody outside of Apple can tell you that ;).

    That's been my point about the rumored iPad 5 specs.

    Wait, are you serious? The 2 is faster than the 3 or are you joking?

    Getting Ready For ipad 5

    I had a garage sale and sold my nexus 7 and old ipod nano , 6th gen for $250.00. With the cash I saved up I am waiting for the ipad 5 to arrive. I have a mini, 64gig, wi-fi, that is spotless, and always in a full case. They only offered me $225.00 at Gazell for it. I just got $225.00 for my 64gig iphone 4s and I felt that I would keep it for that price.
    Today I learned about eCycle Best and they gave me $429.00 for my mini. So I will have to go without a ipad for acouple of weeks, but I should be able to get a new mini for just $100.00 or so.

    Technically, the 3 has a faster CPU and GPU. In reality, the GPU in the 3 is inferior to the 2 if you count the power:resolution ratio.

    If the supply is constrained as is being predicted. Based on last years supply scenario, you will be well into jan/2014 before you get your new mini.

    I will be ready

    I will be ready at 12:00am like I was for the iPhone 5s. I was able to get the 64gig gold, AT&T phone in the first group. I will use the apple store app on my phone. That worked on the 5s as I was able to get thru and start my order before the apple.com site came active. I also did a practice run before so I had all the #'s I would need to complete the upgrade with my credit card and last 4 digets of the s.s. Numbers that I was using to get the upgrade.
