It's not a bad price, but there isn't a world of difference between gen 3 and gen 4.
This is very untrue. The iPad3 had the 5X SOC A9 CPU and it was way underpowered to drive the retina display. As soon as the 6X SOC and Swift CPU was ready apple dumped the ipad3.
In many cases with non retina applications the ipad 2 ran faster than the ipad 3.
The refurb version of the ipad 4 is $299 on the apple store. I just got one for my parents and it was as good as new. Came from china in 3 days.
Is this a good deal? I wouldnt mind getting one to replace my parents older 3rd generation.
no this doesn't really offer much over the 3rd generation. i would get the eBay iPad Air deal for $400, especially if you have the eBay bucks 4x promo, which makes it less than $350 for the newest model. a much better deal than this older model.
It's not a bad price, but there isn't a world of difference between gen 3 and gen 4. We're in a world developing on gen 5 (with a smaller chassis) and we have gen 6 coming out in a few months. Personally I'm waiting for the new one to be released and buying the gen 5 at a discount if the new one isn't anything special.
Also, Gen 3 is the last of the 30 pin connector; just a reminder to check and see if they have any docks or specific devices designed to use the old connector.
EDIT: There's an iPad air on the front page for $400 with no tax. I know it's more expensive, but that would actually be a noticeable upgrade.
I thought I read somewhere that the ipad 3 tended to get very hot to the touch, while the 4 did not. I could be wrong or maybe the problem was fixed but I remember that being an issue when the 3 came out.
