    Aside from just having "must have the newest, shiny toy" syndrome.

    If you have recently upgraded to an iPad 2, will simply having a better screen be enough to make you seriously consider buying the iPad 3? What about new processor? More memory? What would it need to have to consider upgrading?

    If you have an iPad 1, and you haven't upgraded to the iPad 2, what possible new specs (new processor, better screen, more memory, better camera, etc) would make you lean towards buying the iPad 3?

    I still have the iPad 1. If the iPad 3 has better processors, screen, and camera than the iPad 2, I will probably upgrade to the iPad 3. If it is just the screen, or just a better processor, or just a better camera...well, I will still want to upgrade, but I don't know if I will. It will probably need to have at least two of the three (camera, screen, processor) for me to definitely buy a new one.

    I returned my iPad 1 just before the iPad 2 came out. Now I returned my iPad 2 so I can get the 3, if that is what they will be calling it. This time I will make sure to buy it because I need it and not just because it's a hot item. I can't wait to see how nice the screen is, though.

    For me it would be screen and processor. The camera on something that size is kinda useless. I can see the front one for FaceTime but that's about it. I have the first one and held off upgrading.

    What would make me buy the iPad 3? A government grant stipulating I buy the iPad 3.

    Retina display would be enough. I read quite a lot of books and PDF's and find that after a while I get a bit of eye strain. It's a bit fuzzy compared to the iphone 4.

    Neither. I lasted about 3.5 weeks with the first one and sold it cause I really had no use for it. I got a 7" Galaxy Tab to use mostly as an ebook reader - much prefer the 7" form factor. So unless Apple decides they'll sell a 7" iPad, I'll never own another one.

    For me, to buy iPad 3 (2 HD/Pro)... it's retina display.... Nothing else

    I have an iPad 2... Only had for a month... My only gripe is screen quality/res (compared with iPhone 4)

    This thread has mentioned my two biggest wants for an iPad - that retina display AND 7" form factor. I have a Samsung 10.1 and a Galaxy Tab in 7". The 10.1 is the latest with all the go-fasters and latest OS (easier to hold than the iPad 2, too!), but I still grab the 7" when I leave the house. It's just... better that way.

    I would be the first one in line on launch day if the iPad 3 was going to have an 8" screen.

    LOL, only if the 4 was coming out in less than 6 months. Which I highly doubt that it will.

    No worries, Phreddyl. I enjoy a little humor at the end of the day.

    ^ this

    The iPhone 4 has completely spoiled me as far as displays go. The current iPad display, while really good, does indeed look fuzzy by comparison.

    RETINA DISPLAY for iPad 3...PLEASE!!!

    I'll buy one if apple gives me full price for my second gen on trade. Not buying an ipad every year that's insane. Iphone every year is enough for me.

    I agree with everyone in saying that the only complaint I have with the ipad 2 is the screen resolution, but in my usage it still works like a charm and I don't mind it enough to drop everything for the ipad 3. The second gen will last me a while.
