    I am moving back to ipad since trading away my iPad 1 and owning a WebOS and 2 different Android tablets.

    Wal-Mart currently has the iPad3 64gb Wi-Fi on sale for 499.99 online. The iPad 4 64gb Wi-Fi is 699.99.

    Is the Ipad 4 worth 200$ more or should I pick up the iPad 3 instead?

    You can compare the technical details here:

    Wikipedia

    The iPad 4 64 GB Wi-Fi only is available in the Apple store at the same price as Wal-Mart.

    Thanks for the info, but I have already done the comparison. Being that I have been away from the iPad since Generation 1 am wondering if the people on the forum who have much more experience than I, feel the 4 is worth 200 more than the 3 :)

    Made that decision last year. Decided if I was going to get one, I'd get the latest.

    iPad 3 has been obsolete for 10 months so I am surprised it is still available any where.

    The 4th generation is double performance plus offers the new generation wifi

    I would get the ipad 3, unless you want the latest and greatest. The iPad 2 is still selling and doing well, so the 3 should be fine. I have the ipad3, and love it. Just my thought.

    Depends on what you're using it for. If its just for regular Internet, email etc the iPad 3 is perfect. If you're playing high end games or apps and planning on continuing to download the next biggest high end app I'd go with the iPad 4 since it has the upgraded processor & wifi. Also consider your phone and future phones. If you're on the iPhone is it a 5? Or any plans on the 5 or newer? Because the iPad 3 is the old cable and the iPad 4 is the new lighting cable which the iPhone 5 has and I'm sure future iPhones will have. I hate buying new cables just because the device changed or having to have 2 types of cables to charge devices. Some don't think this is worth the extra $200 but I do. I have the iPhone 4S so bought the iPad 3. After I upgrade my iPhone to what ever is new this fall I'll most likely also upgrade my iPad to the newest one that comes out that's full sized (no interest in the mini).

    I respectfully disagree. While technology has advanced you'll always need two version just for the people not looking to spend more money for a device that's more than they need. I don't count the mini because its just an iPad 4 which is smaller. The iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS and even 4 are obsolete. The iPad 1 & 2 are obsolete. But the iPad 3 is perfect for those who need it for nothing more than email, internet, music and something like Candy Crush. While the iPad 4 is for the more heavy users or those who insist on having the newest best thing. Or even those people who know that this is the only device they'll buy for 3-4 years so get the best now. If all Apple had was the 4 & mini many potential buyers not looking for a heavy hitter device would look elsewhere for a cheaper device to do those simple things. But keeping the 3 those same buyers may not look elsewhere.

    iPhone 4S 6.1.2 jailbroke :) iPad 3 6.1.3 not jailbroke :(

    If the Ipad3 fits to your activities concerning its hardware ... why not paying 200 bucks less = )

    Just for the record. The current models world wide on apple's web sites are iPad mini, iPad 2 , and iPad retina or 4th generation iPad. The iPad 3 was discontinued when the 4the generation was released in Nov 2012 . It is possible that some inventory is available in USA however it would limited. If you can find an iPad 3 and that is what you want make sure it is not refurbished. It is your choice
