    Honestly it's completely a personal choice as to whether you think upgrading is the right choice. I will tell you though, the iPad 4 is ridiculously fast, and honestly after being spoiled by retina I can't go back to a non retina apple device. I picked up the great mini on Nov 2nd and ended up upgrading to the 4 2 days later because my eyes didn't appreciate the switching from my retina i5 to the mini. It really is noticeable and the experience of using a retina display is brilliant and I can't imagine not having one now. Apps load incredibly fast on my iPad 4 and taxing games(Nova 3) play incredible smooth at high fps. While I will concur this is a matter of opinion, I think you would be incredibly happy with the monumental leap it would be to the iPad 4. Good luck in whatever you decide.

    Friday i replaced my iPad 2 wifi with an iPad 3 LTE and the difference is HUGE. For me the key factors were the screen and the amount of ram, 512 to 1 gig. I didnt want a 4 because Ive got a ton of 30 pin accessories for my iPad and 4s. If money isnt going to be a deciding factor then absolutely upgrade. My eyes after reading a few hours of ibooks on the 2 would get tired and blurry but on the 3 I have no issues reading hours on end.

    It does have a better front camera too, right? VGA v 1.2MP I believe. So will I look better to people I Skype with?

    Yes, the latest two iPads, iPad 4 and mini, both have HD front cameras, so they can capture 720p video. You still need good light, but it should be improved. I say should because I never Facetime or Skype with image.

    Well I picked up my 4 last night and the 2 is already on craigslist! For me, the huge retina screen was worth it. Now I will try and take advantage of the faster processor with some cool apps. I stuck with white. Only regret... I have too much music, my 32GB had 2 GB available now and its brand new...

    I will say, the mini is sweeeet! Almost got one of the those instead and kept the 2!

    I have a crap-ton of songs as well, so I feel you on the music. I personally think the best decision I have made with regards to music was signing up for iTunes Match. being able to listen to any album on the fly is freaking awesome. I can get in my car and just put my phone (I dont have my iPad hooked up in the car) and hit a playlist or genre or genius mix and hit play and I have non-stop music. When I need space, I just go into Settings and Usage and delete the music. It is always available and so far, knock on wood, I have not had any glitches.

    I might remove the majority of my music because its all on my 64GB iPhone anyway and that is what I use to play music in my car or at home. I will leave just my favorite artists and some "party mixes."

    I just dont know how to sync different play lists on two devices IE all my music to my iPhone while only select music to my iPad.

    The best thing to do (well, what I think is best ... because its what I do) is to put the music you want on the iPad into a playlist (or more). Then, you can elect which play list you want to put on the iPad. iTunes will keep them separate (it recognizes that the devices are different).

    This way, you can keep your playlists sorted out and how you want them.
