Would it be stupid to spend a lot of $$$ on a case for the new iPad so late?

    I mean I feel like a new iPad will be out in 2-3 months:eek:

    Is it worth spending 50-75 or more on a case now?

    I could never find one I truly liked but do like one I've seen recently

    Unless you're talking about the rumoured iPad mini the next release should be in the first quarter of next year, that is at least 4 or 5 months.

    I have no issues buying a case as I'm planning on keeping my iPad 3 until the 2014 model.

    i'm guessing you're upgrading regardless?

    50-70? if you're upgrading anyway then I would guess not worth it.

    I remember reading that a next gen iPad is around the corner, which is why I was thinking this way. If that's the case then I guess it's worth it.


    Yup, upgrading regardless if the wait is upward of 4 months though well that's quite a bit of time might jut purchase

    Subjective -- just as any question of worth is on any topic.

    I would just purchase the case, and when you upgrade purchase a new case and sell your old one
    just me though:cool:

    why not upgrade it? $50-$70 a lot of money, while only it's perfect for you

    If the next iPad is the same form factor as the current one you'll be able to keep using your case on the new one - And it's not like the chances of that is nill, as the iPad isn't exactly crying out for a redesign :)
