    it all depends if you are going to take advantage of the new features. If you plan on video chatting and downloading high quality graphics apps then it would be worth it.

    For me it seems i do an every other one method. I am planning on buying the ipad 2 and then probably will not buy another ipad until the 4th update. I have done this will all the apple products i own and it works well for me.

    Same for me, since i like gaming i need the additional GPU and CPU power of the IPad2, i dont mind the camera.

    So if the IPad 3 is "only" going to advance in things not really boosting the processor/graphical power i will also go for the 4th generation.

    Bet there will be more RAM in the 3rd generation. But if this would be the only boost ill let it be.

    If you have an iPad already I do not see why you would need to upgrade unless it for business purposes only (I.e video chat). I can't say that the new cameras are nice however, simply, they suck. Though the overall design is nice and I'm using my iPad all the time, but the original iPad can do almost anything the iPad. 2 can do.

    Here's a sample pic with the cameras so you can see how much they suck.

    It's cool that you can take pictures on the iPad then upload them right to the photobucket app. I don't use my computer anymore to post.

    Personally I'm upgrading to iPad 2 , my son has always got my iPad and I hardly get to use it , so I'm giving him and my daughter that to share.I'll then have the iPad 2 for myself, kid app free.if I find out later it's not worth having two iPads then I will just eBay it.I'm not bothered about the cameras but the faster speed and graphics combined with it being thinner and bit lighter are well worth the upgrade for me.if there is a dramatic upgrade with iPad 3 that I just can't wait to have and I can afford it at the time, I will eBay my iPad 2 and put the difference towards the new one, kids will keep the original iPad as it won't be worth as much as the iPad 2 by then.

    This year I would have given the new iPhone 4 a miss as I'm happy with mine but I need a bigger capacity so that's swayed me,need to upgrade to 32g as I'm running out of space on mine for apps and it's annoying to have to erase them. I'll get the new one, hubby will get the iPhone 4 if he wants it and my daughter the 3GS (that my husband has now) and my son will get my daughters original iphone so everyone's happy.

    Iv got it all worked out lol those are my reasons for upgrading and I'm sticking to them.
    I would not however do this with a pc and usually get the best specs i can at the time and keep it for good 3 years before investing in a new one, then passing it on to the kids.

    You shouldn't upgrade in my opinion. The cameras aren't supposed to be good and that is one of the main reasons to upgrade. Since you are a freshman in college if you have the 500 bucks sitting around put it away for a CAR in a few years :). Keep your eye on the prize :).

    I am hoping for maybe a USB port, an even nicer design, more ram, and retina display in gen. 3

    I'm not a genius but Im convinced that the USB is a no. If they were going to make a port they would have put it on the 2 somehow. Jobs is fine with the way it is. I was under the impression however that the iPad 3 would feature a smaller unit to compete with the different sized droits available now. 7" anyone?

    And if they were going to make a camera they would have put it on the first one, but Jobs intentionally left stuff out of the first so he could make at least 4 more generations. You've seen it in the iPhone.

    My, my my, evolutionary not revolutionary ... iPad3 will have Retina, USB, HDMI ports, Flash, and come in 7" size even though SJ mentioned the 7" screen was too small ... Flash caused lots of problems, and USB is for .jpg via the camera kit adapter.

    I can see you have been reading ... we'll all be watching to see what really happens. I can appreciate your opinions, however. We all have them. But if you are selling ... keep trying. It's not working here, however.

    There are many references to the iPad 2 being similar to the iPhone 3gS. Not really a good upgrade for iPhone 3g owners but good for the first gen iPhone people.

    I think the iPad 3 will be a good upgrade for first gen iPad owners. For *most* (exceptions abound) the ipad2 upgrade is not a great one.
