    Considering MyBB had a new iPad to review, I can't believe that this article states it has Siri. Voice dictation sure, but not Siri.

    Well then I'm gonna sue for calling it 4G...since the SA courts already argued that it is not 4G right???

    Just so we're clear, I HATE Apple, not blindly following them, just accepting the way they want to publish their products. They are adopting the same routine as EVERY single one of their other devices! Mac Pro, Mac Mini, Mac Air... none of them have numbers! It has never been complicated before? When the latest MacBook Air comes out... it's easily compared to the previous models is it not? Apple are aligning their approach, it's not a new device with a new name, it's the same device, just with better specs!

    The only reason people are struggling is because there are still so few of them on the market. And in 10 years, who the ef will care about the "iPad 3"? The iPad in 10 years time will be compared to the iPad in 9 years time. Not this generation's device. But look, I get it, some people have trouble understanding simple concepts.

    Is it time for you to upgrade to the iPad 3?
    So it's a No then? Unless of course you just have to have the latest iPad because you must, must, must have it because you really, really need it and because it's so cool and everyone is getting one and it's awesome and you can't wait and ... meh.

    Why is this even a thread?

    The Mac market is quite small compared to the ipad. The naming was never an issue before because few people actually bothered to get a Mac and those that did went and looked up the specs. The ipad is way more popular than any Mac ever was and there are more moms and pops buying ipads. Hence an easy way to differentiate between the models is necessary. Differentiation is also needed because there other tablet competitors with similar spec'd tablets. When making comparisons, it's easier to just call it the ipad3 instead of ipad (3rd generation).

    Fair enough. I suppose it really is because so many people have bought into this thing. And I guess they have a naming system for the iPhone for the same reason.

    As for the actual topic - it's not time to upgrade to the iPad 3. It was never time to up?grade to an iPad. As half of the iPad owners have come to realize since buying a device that serves no purpose.

    Just sold my iPad 2 in anticipation of the new iPad and the entire family is having withdrawal symptoms.

    Hope you got a very good price for the iPad2 otherwise you are going to kick yourself when you get the new one. I've only played around with mine for a very short time but the differences so far are minuscule. I haven't tried out any of the new apps that have been optimised so maybe I will change my view in the future. For now I say keep the 2 until you have had time to check out the new one for yourself.

    Sold it R3k for it on Gumtree. Got it at launch just under a year ago. Got great mileage out of it so I'm reasonably happy with the selling price.

    Retina display, 5mp iSight camera, 1gb ram, quad core GPU and 4G-LTE seems a worthwhile upgrade to me.

    I'm not saying its not great but I wouldn't insist that it's a requirement for anyone with a ipad2 to upgrade.

    Fair emuff!!

    Personally I think retina display is significant enough of an improvement over 1024 x 768 to justify the upgrade. The hardware enhancements are as significant as they were between the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 which many deemed (and rightly so) to be significant.
