Why do people keep upgrading iPads?
I wish to comment here as as another well know user stated... About the word irrational ....... No one is irrational it is there choice no different than buying a new computer , a new car or any personal item "it is their decision" and in most cases based on their needs. Apple does not as quoted hold back changes as every thing you receive to day has been in planning mode for some 3 years if not more. One must realise many technologies are not available for future upgrades as

SSD is a prime example even Samsung could not compete on price in the so called ultra book arena why because the sheer cost of manufacturing a similar product as Apple was out of reach.
I am passionate about Apple always have been since 1977 when I purchased my first computer however at the same time I pick what upgrades I want based on my needs and what I can afford not because some says you need to do this....I believe what you don't know is those users buying new product in most cases are new users. Our stores whom sell iPads estimate 70% of buyers were new users and that in my opinion is most likely accurate.
I use my iPad 7/24 I use my MacBook 2008 model once maybe a month and in most cases to check for updates. Every iOS device I own is synced via wifi and then back up not once but twice to a NAS and attached HD I have no reason to upgrade the MacBook and frankly no reason to upgrade the iPad 3 or 3 iPhones not to mention 2 Apple TV.
The iPad 3 does every thing that I want it to including running a Apple consulting business including invoicing(quicksale) logging onto computer sites to perform support (logmein) administrating 3 forums plus moderating 3 others in our group, banking reading the latest news , gaming, reading books, reading 10 newspapers, remote control my entertainment system, watching movies on my NAS server and when I want to also mirror the iPad to Apple TV and not to mention responding to some 50 plus emails a day
In summary every one uses iPads differently that is what makes the product so exciting. It does not matter how young you are or if you are a matured 90 year old the iPad brings pleasure. Steve without question delivered a product for the masses not just a few people whom want to play games...
So will I buy the next iPad.... Maybe and if I do will keep my iPad 3 for my lovely partner or buy her a a mini.
That is my two cents worth from Australia.
