I did because: Because : ITs the first year... While Apple has made tablets since the beginning of time, this has been a Generation 1 for apple... I wanted to wait for at least 6 months to hear all the problems... And the problems tell me to wait for the second version... so what are the issues: Charging needs to be greatly improved... I've seen too many dead iPP's that have the screen on 100%... This is a flaw and should be addressed.The charging is too slow and cannot keep up to an IPP running with the screen at 100%... Resolution is the SAME as what we have had for 2 years... I want ULTRA HD... I have an iPad 4 withe retina display... Great!!! I want better... Apple is the master of desire, they give you JUST enough so you buy and want MORE... I'll take the second pass on the IPP... Let the Debate begin !!!
