    Buy Ipad 3 now or wait till Sept Keynote?

    I'm looking to buy the Ipad 3 as my first Ipad, but I'm worried by some rumors saying that Apple might announce some updates to the Ipad at the Sept. 12 announcement.
    Check out the rumor here: New Details On Apple’s Next iPhone, iPods, iPad mini, iPad (4th-Gen) + Cases | iLounge Backstage
    I've also seen the rumor in a couple other places. They're saying there may be changes to the battery and an IGZO screen update to make the ipad thinner and lighter and solve the charging/battery heat problems.

    Do you think these rumors of an update might be true? I want to get an Ipad asap, but I don't want to buy one now and have a new one be released in less than a month. I was also planning on buying a refurb model to save some money, but obviously wouldn't be able to to do that with a newly released model.

    Thanks!

    Also, besides the fact that I just can't wait to get my hands on my first Ipad, I'm in college and will be going back to school September 19th. So if I wait till after the Keynote to order, the updated version might not be released till after I go back to school where it's harder to get to a store which will be more complicated. Hence my reluctance to simply wait till September.

    There are no battery and heating problems. Apple does need to update its products on a faster cycle, however, so a september refresh work be best, so it would be good if it happened. It is not much of a wait.

    I'd wait. Your return to school and possible delay in getting an iPad is a short-term problem. If you bought now and a better one came out, you'd face a longer-term situation.

    Besides, with a credit card and an Internet connection, you'll be able to order any new iPad as soon as sales begin, and be among the first to get one.

    The latest model iPad was relatively easy to get at stores even during the first weeks, vs. the previous two models. More people are realizing that ordering online as soon as sales start is easy, and you get it delivered. So fewer people have to storm stores for iPads. Plus, there are more places selling iPads from day one than before. Best Buy, Target and Wal-Mart will have them, for instance, as well as Apple stores.

    And if a new full-size iPad were announced, refurb and used-iPad prices would probably fall.

    Buy Ipad 3 now or wait till Sept Keynote?

    I would be surprised if a new full size came out this fast., it's unlikely ... However there is speculation on a 7" model

    Huh? Besides perhaps a 7” iPad, I haven't heard anything about a refresher for the current iPad to be released in September. They must have meant for 2013. Also, there are no charging issues.

    This thread mentions the possible updates to the iPad 3, coming later this year.
