I have an iPad 1. Still not upgrading. So weird for me too as I usually have the newest Apple products when they come out. I did not get an iPad 2 as there really was no reason to upgrade to that from the iPad 1. I said I would wait till they came out with a better display. Now they have the better display, but I want to wait to see how it looks in person and make sure there are not going to be a bunch of screen issues before I buy into the hype.
I was considering it, but I currently sport the top model iPad2 and it's proving hard to sell for a decent price. (the 16GB models retain their value better). I've decided to wait out the iPad3 and get an iPad4 next year. If Apple has proven a thing it's that first gen of huge improvements (the screen) aren't usually Apple quality.
I'm happy with what I've got, for now. Maybe I'll decide to upgrade later this year, who knows.
I voted "yes," but I intended to upgrade even before I bought an iPad 2. Until the iPad fully matures annual upgrades will be worth flipping the old model. At some point -- similar to the iPods, or even Macs, the annual updates will be rather insignificant. Only then will I start to skip a generation. The new iPad is quite upgrade worthy.
Nope, no need to move up to the New iPad for me. The iPad2 is still more than good enough for what little use I put on it. In fact, I just picked up a used 32gb model from a buddy that's upgrading (and my current 16gb is being sold to a friend).
Yep, upgrading. Sister-in-law is having my iPad2. (which I swore I would never get in the first place)
It's strange, 3 years ago, there was no Apple stuff in the household, then I got an iPod Touch because of a game I wanted to play on the road.
3 years later, we have an iMac, a MBP, 3 iPod Touchs (3 children), soon the new iPad in our household, my wifes sister now has 2 iPod Touchs after seeing ours and soon my iPad2, my mum has an iPad after seeing mine. My sister... etc etc The bandwagon effect Apple has is quite incredible.
I have an iPad 32 Gb wifi only model now and I bought the 16 Gb iPad 3rd gen LTE model. I usually do not use all 32 Gb of space since I pretty much stream everything at the house. I use Netflix and I stream my iTunes library to the apple tvs and my ipads so not much use for the actual physical storage on the ipad. When a jb comes out for it I have a cck and 32 usb drive that will work for it and I can use that for my additional storage for movies if needed. Otherwise I will make due.
The retina, LTE, 5 MP camera, and voice dictation are pretty much what sold me. I wanted to wait but figure I can resell my ipad 2 wifi to make some of the money back and upgrade for half the cost. Then we will see about next year.
Under normal circumstances I wouldn't have. I typically skip generations in upgrading technology. However, some months ago my 85 year old Mom's computer (and it was a horrible, laggy, useless thing) got fried by lightening. When it happened I suggested she might prefer to have it replaced not with another desktop or laptop but with an iPad. An iPad will do everything she'd like and more in a lighter, easier, more elegant way. She told me she wasn't sure but she'd think about it. Then we went on a weeklong trip to a family wedding where she got to spend quality time with my iPad and that made up her mind, she wanted an iPad and she wanted one bad! At that point I knew the new one was coming and told her if she could wait a bit I'd upgrade mine and give her the old one, so that's what I did. She is more anxious for the arrival of my new iPad than I am I think!
