    Surprisingly happy with outcome at bestbuy

    As per my previous post, I planned to return my recently purchased ipad 3 to best buy (w/I 30 day return policy).

    When I arrived, I began explaining why I wanted to return it. Ultimately, bestbuy offered to match the iPad 3 lte refurb price on the apple website right now

    So I was retroactively refunded the difference ($629.99 ---> $509.00) and I get to avoid the hassle of reactivating the vie stuff, etc. no waiting a month for the 4g model etc.

    Does anyone feel that I should have still returned and waited for the iPad 4?

    (Not starting flame war. Just curious)
    Thanks all.

    I would have returned it, but that's just me. Seems like a CPU with twice the speed, better screen, faster wifi would be good enough reasons for me. I am selling my iPad 2 to get the 4, which it seems they aren't calling iPad 4, but once again the iPad? I looked at the apple store, and it looks like there will no longer be the 3rd generation? Not sure if this is right.

    I agree with kctay. If you can do without an iPad for a month I'd wait for the faster processor. Also agree that the 3ed generation has been replaced by the 4th and the iPad 2 is staying around as the non-retina version.

    Better screen?Not saying you are wrong,but I was under the assumption the screen was exactly the same on both devices?I actually hope you are right,as I just sold my iPad 3 and am waiting for the 4 to be released.

    It does not have a better screen but does have a better Graphics Processor.

    Best Buy FTW.

    I too would get the new one. It only makes sense if you are a new buyer to get the latest and greatest if you don't mind spending the money.

    After reading your thread, I headed to my local BB with my first ever, new iPad. I had the "what to do" ideas in my mind if they asked me for the same deal with my iPad3 still under the 30 day return deal. I had decided I was going to go for a new iPad 4, but I maybe could change my mind. They were happy to return my money, but I had to convince them there was even a new iPad 4 coming out. This was three days after Apple announced the fact. I wandered over to EReaders etc. area afterward where a salesman was selling a iPad 3 @ the same price (still!) I talked to sales person while lingering over the new Kindle HD tablet, telling her why I was there and waiting for the new iPad 4. She tried to convice me I was confused (just like the other sales person) I must be talking about the iPad mini. I tried to convice all three sales person there was a new iPad 4 coming out AND the iPad mini. There looked at me stunned. Hmm, so much for Apple informing them. Or for them even keeping in the loop. I went over to talk to someone in the Geek Squad to make sure everything was taken off my returned iPad (he did it in front of me) and he kinda ' knew the new iPad was coming out (or at least tried to not look out of the loop, the others were too stunned to.) Still, BB was good about returning the iPad, and I will be going back to get the new iPad 4 there for sure.

    Best Buy is failing as an informative customer service store in recent years........a lot of employees are clueless.
    Thats' why people go to these stores is to get correct information and make an informed decision before purchasing at their store.

    I would recommend to you if you have a Apple store close by to go there instead......the majority of their employees know what they are talking about.
    I was as a BB store yesterday and they did know about the new iPad 4......but they were still selling the iPad 3 to unknowing customers at the same price!

    They had a ton of iPad 3 models in stock....they will have to drastically discount them to sell when they finally get the iPad 4 in stock.
