I am a new member, planning to purchase a 64G 4G iPad on or about June 1. I almost never purchase "Build One" of a new product, and I also want to see a good choice of cases and accessories before buying, even maybe have the first OTA in the rearview mirror. I didn't buy an iPad2 because the resolution was not a giant leap above my PC's, but I am very excited about the new retina display. A full-blown A6 chip would've been nice, but I think the new iPad is the one for me since it represents the final maturation of a proven product, and is the best iPad2 Apple's ever going to build. I anticipate that the iPad introduced in March 2013 will kick off a new technology/style cycle for the device.
My new iPad will be the basis of an upgrade for my entire home system, as outlined below.
64G 4G iPad
Asus RT-N66U router
Slingbox Solo with SlingLink ethernet bridges
Case: Right now, I like the looks and utility of the SwitchEasy Canvas, STM Grip, and the to-be-released Hard Candy Chrome Bezel and Speck PixelSkin. If I go with a folio, I'll also spring for a Glas.T tempered-glass screen protector.
I'm a tablet man through-and-through. I actually owned an Epson HX-20 in 1984, and from 2005-2009 used the wonderful Motion Computing M1400 tablet. I am sure the iPad experience will raise the bar considerably. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from this forum, and to "meeting" all of you.
