    Hi, I am considering buying an iPad 3 now, but would this be a bad idea considering Apple may/may not make some adjustments to the current iPad 3 in the next few weeks? (lightning connector, IGZO display, etc.)

    What should I do? Should I wait, or just go for it!?

    Thanks!

    iPad 3 is only out a few month and it's highly unlikely that there will be any change for the next 6 month.

    The new connector is meaningless, but wide band LTE would be certainly useful to many. But continuous updates are not Apples strong point.

    Maybe it'll be iPad 3.1 and get a new connector. slim it down, too.

    Buyer's Guide shows that we are in the middle of the iPad product cycle. No update likely for at least a few months, more like 6 months.

    How many out of schedule updates have we seen so far from Apple?

    As always with these "Buy now or later?" threads: buy based on your priorities -- not based on random polling of people with differing priorities.

    Wait dude!

    It is said that they will solve the heat problem in next iPad, which is supposed to be announced next month. Or there is no reason to just introduce an "iPad mini" solely in a event.

    I just bought a iPad 2. Don't know whether it is wise...:(

    I just bought my iPad 3, a few days ago.
    I was able to sell my iPad 2. I had that since October 2011.

    It was well worth the upgrade to do it. I'm glad I did it.

    If you can get the iPad 3, I say go for it.
    It's such a great improvement.
    It's one of the best decisions I ever made.
