    I will be upgrading if it has a retina display (which I'm 90% sure it will). Luckily I have a family member who wants my iPad 2 if I get the new iPad 3 so I'll only have to pay a small amount to upgrade :)

    I am not going to upgrade. I have the iPad 2 and it does everything and more that I need it to do.

    I have the iPad 1, and I'll be camping out for the iPad 3. The iPad 1 just isn't fast enough to keep up with all the apps I use. I work with 100-200 MB PDF files a lot, and I use pages frequently to compose documents. The iPad 1 is just too sluggish for those kinds of tasks. I would get an iPad 2 right now, but with an iPad 3 around the corner that would make little to no sense.

    I will. I currently do not have an iPad, so the 3 is a natural choice. I want to replace a bulky laptop I use mainly for IM and web surfing.

    I may also pick up an iPhone 4S in April, moving away from DroidX. It depends on the rumor mill for the iPhone 5 and a rough ETA on arrival.. I may just wait for the 5. :)

    Keep telling yourself that buddy. I'll be upgrading. I'm not even going to pretend I'm "not going to upgrade". I tell my self that before every iPhone announcement and I end up just lying to myself and preordering it.

    I'm enjoying the iPad 1 and iPad 2 I have. Just a few days ago, I was all set to buy the upcoming iPad 3. However that has now changed.

    Based on the latest comments from Tim Cook about the direction Apple is headed, the announcement of the rather early release of Mountain Lion, and my less than exciting experience with Lion, I have lost most of my enthusiasm.

    While certainly not surprised, I was under the general impression that Apple would spend a few years engineering the convergence of iOS & OS X. Now it seems based on several articles I've read in the last two days, that Apple is racing towards a single OS across all devices and computers.

    Less is more may be Apples new mantra.

    lol yeah i feel you. I usually get the new iPhone took me a few month to go from 4 to 4s though.. If I had the extra money I would probably consider it but I've only had this iPad for maybe 5 months and I'm perfectly happy with it

    That's the complete opposite of what they want to do... They want to closely integrate iOS with OS X to make your life easier.
    Apple knows that keyboard and mouse need a different OS to a touch screen.

    I will be buying the new iPad with or without retina display, but must have more 1.memory, 2.better processor and 3.better cameras, if it has all that, I'm in.

    Retina display will look awesome, but at the distance I use the iPad, I actually feel fine with the current resolution. I use the iPad more for watching TV and Music production, neither need a retina display.

    Honestly I think I would rather have better speaker(s) The sound and direction of the speaker sucks on the current iPad.

    I have an iPad 1, which I had pre-ordered when it came out, back in 2010.

    It has the the single core cpu, 256 mb memory, 64 gb storage, 1024x768video display, and 3G.

    For me to upgrade to the iPad 3, I'd like to see it have the quad core cpu, 1 gb memory, 128 gb storage, the 2048x1536 retina display, and 4G.

    My next upgrade wouldn't be until, at least, in two years, to the iPad 5.

    Another who'll probably upgrade if it has a retina display. I do a lot of reading on the iPad 2. Having used the iPhone 4S (since day one), I can see where I'll benefit from an iPad with the retina display.
