    Who knows is right! If its something you need or want now, then go ahead. If you're the patient sort of person, then wait. Sorry I don't have better advice.

    You have about a 6 month wait for the 5th gen. It truly depends on your patience. I wouldn't expect any groundbreaking new features in the upcoming model.

    I recently found myself in the same dilemma.

    Most recent rumors point to an autumn release of the new iPad, so you'd be waiting a bit. So the next question I asked myself was whether there would be a groundbreaking 'must have' feature of the new iPad over the current one. Most speculation (although just rumors) believe it will have a thinner bezel and be a bit more similar to the iPad Mini design wise, and of course it will have a faster processor. Being that the design of the 4th gen was just fine with me, and the processor was already a beast, I went ahead and got the 4. It works great for me.

    In that case you might as well get the 4. You won't regret it.

    I say go for the 4. The speed on it is sweet. The big likely change when the 5 drops is a lighter weight but, realistically, you don't hold a full size iPad up in the air very often. You're always propping it somehow. So even a 30% reduction in weight, while nice, isn't going to result in a real world difference IMO.

    For all manner of propping up purposes, I've found the Apple Smart Cover to be super useful and versatile.

    I'm in agreement with edd, and to add to his reply, do you have any idea of what you plan to do with an iPad? How often you will use it? Will it be a primary computing device or a secondary device? I still have an iPad 2 that I have no intentions of upgrading from unless it craps out on me. It is more than sufficient for my needs.

    As far as I know, none of the iPads come with earpods, you can see it in the "what's in the box" section on apple website.
    Only iPhones and iPods come with earpods. You are gonna have to buy them separately.
