    Unless you have the first gen which has become a slowunusablesafaricrashingnightmare. I didn't get the 2nd gen because it didn't offer a better screen or more storage. I don't have the patience to wait for gen 4 at this point.

    Oh if you have a 1, I can't see why you wouldn't upgrade to this! But even for them to say you have an iPad 2, so you shouldn't upgrade is crazy. Maybe I am the minority because I sold my iPad 2 for $20 less than I paid for it...

    What a stupid list!!

    Reason 2: The retina display is mostly marketing hype
    YEAH RIGHT!

    Reason 3: High-res apps will take more memory
    COMMON SENSE!

    Reason 7: The size
    THE IPAD IS THE PERFECT SIZE!

    Reason 8: iPad 2 accessories won’t necessarily work
    REALLY? THATS WHY YOU SHOULDNT BUY ONE?

    Reasons 10-16: Still limited after all these years
    ONLY AS LIMITED AS YOUR MIND

    "IM ON YOUR SIDE, KIDS."


    we got a real professional on our hands here, fellas!


    what kind of opening sentence is that...


    just set yourself up for failure....not that the rest of the article negates any of that.

    Oh well. Too late for me. Darn. I wished I'd thought of all those things before I hit the "send order" button. [​IMG]:D

    How can anyone seriously believe this non-sense given the fact that the iPad hasn't even been released yet? This guy is obviously just trying to get traffic on his site.

    What I read between the lines is, "My Android tablet is better because it lacks the retina display and therefor needs less storage, memory and graphics to play the mediocre games I'm used to."

    #4 - 4G/LTE is expensive.... ?? It's the same price as the standard data plan. It's a connection type not a price point.

    #6 - Porn He's bitching about the lack of porn in the app store.

    :rolleyes:

    As someone who's never owned an iPad yet, I think this is the perfect one to start out with.

    OK, that did it. I'm depressed now. So I'm going to get rid of my New iPad Generation 3 in 12 months, and get the generation 4. Wonder what he will write up next time ?

    "To be fair, most of the lessons my mom tried to teach me didn’t stick. To her credit, she tried, oh, did she try. But I was something of a problem child. All these years later, I can simply respect and honor her effort. It’s not my mom’s fault I turned out the way I did. Mama tried."​

    He wrote above....So that's the reason he wrote this new iPad up the way he did. He's a problem child.

    Reason 1 (I already have one) and 2 (retina display is mostly marketing hype) are pretty much the reasons I am not upgrading my 2 right away, maybe later, we'll see...although I wouldn't go so far to say the retina display is mostly marketing hype...it's just not that big of a deal for me...

    First he says the screen is too small to watch movies, then he says it's too big to read books.

    ...oh, and it's so nice having to read over three pages for those page views...

    If you don't want to buy one, then don't freaking buy one. No one is making you. Now go away.
