    If the release of iPad 3 will pursue are you willing to give up and sell your iPad 2 just to buy the iPad 3 ? :rolleyes:

    Thanks for your response.
    iPad 3 is said to have an even stronger build than the iPad 2. It said to be the improved iPad 2.

    Unfortunately, while it may be wise to wait for the iPad 3 at this point, I can't. I gotta have it. So no, considering I'm buying my iPad 2 in a couple of days, no way I am selling it for the 3. I'll get the latest iPad whenever my 2 stops working.

    I mean, granted - the iPad 3 is going to be better. But a) I don't have ANY tablet now, so the iPad 2 is better than what I have now :D and b) unless you're incredibly wealthy or a really good salesman, there is no possible way to keep up with ALL of the latest gadgets, as fast as they're released!

    for me personally i want a bit of kit that perfectly suits my needs. im not into updating and upgrading each year just because the option is there. life gets expensive doing that.
    the ipad2 really is my perfect companion. the only gripes i have are ios based, not hardware based.

    a new upgraded, faster, sleeker, 'does-more', ipad would obviously be nice each year though.

    I've had mine for two weeks. I will be using it until it dies. I have no idea how long that will be, but I'll even keep getting the battery replaced. That's cos I'm a single mum and this is the biggest purchase I have ever made for myself so it needs to last as long as possible. I never thought it would replace my old laptop, but it really has.

    iPad 3

    My 20th yr anniversary is next year. I plan on purchasing an iPad for my husband as one of his gifts. It is in June. So depending on the price of the iPad 3 I may get him that one.

    You're definitely correct! In fact upgrading or availing new gadgets is just for the ego of some person. They're doing this just to be on trend. :D

    Aha! Good decision! It not really necessary to follow the trend. As long as it is still working then its probably enough. ;)

    I don't understand the compulsion to own the absolute latest...it's like a dog chasing its own tail...in technology, you will never catch up! :) Fun to try though, isn't it??:D

    I didn't buy an iPad until the 2 came out...it took me a year to settle in my mind that plunking $600 on a toy that I didn't really need would be smart.

    That being said, I love my iPad and use it frequently, but I cannot see giving it up anytime soon. I'm sure the iPad3 will have a few bells and whistles, the 2 doesn't possess, but I am very happy with my 2, and will use it for a few years, I'm sure!

    Have fun,

    Steve

    Here's a thought, why don't you wait and see what the iPad 3 is all about before trying to decide if you're going to get one, gesh.
