    I don't think so, the only upgrades are:

    -better FaceTime cam
    -lightning dock
    -faster CPU

    To me, personally, that is not enough to upgrade from the iPad 3. There was no actual innovation to it; only a small updating of certain parts. The iPad 3 can and will be able to do everything an iPad 4 can do for years to come.

    I have the iPad 3, and will probably upgrade to the 5 or 6th gen, depending on what they upgrade

    If you have throw-away money and HAVE to stay on the cutting edge of Apple tech, then get it. If not, then don't.

    Hi there--

    I just deleted your other post as it was a duplicate of this one. Please do not do this since it makes it hard for other members to read and help you of there are multiple threads of the same topic present. It is also against forum rules.

    Thank you.

    This. I'm going to attempt to get a really good price for mine. If I can I will upgrade, if I can't then forget it.

    I got a trade-in price of $425 for my 2.5 month old ipad3 32GB WiFi from PowerMax - a loss of $174 from original payment. How fair this is to upgrade to ipad4? Any comments?

    If you don't think that it's fair why did you do it?

    Try Craigslist. I got offers for $400 for my 16GB wifi and was looking for more since I include a smart cover as well. You should be able to get at least 450.

    Gab, I just asked a trade-in price from the co. Though still considering, not made the trade-in yet. Still have couple days to make final decision. So what's everyone's opinion. (personally, I was very disappointed with apple's surprising move on discontinuing ipad3 for the fast ipad4 turnout, especially after talking to a crappy, so called, customer relation guy.)

    Only reason I could think of to upgrade is if you realised that you should have gone for 64Gb.

    What you have to do is determine just what each iPad has to offer and make your decision on which iPad can best fulfill your needs at this time.

    Hi liveinla, I have never done Craigslist before. After posting there, do they charge you a fee when you sell your product? According to their warning on money transaction scam, which way is the most safe/reliable in receiving sales money? Thanks for help.
