ketamine is correct, they both have retina displays.

Scroll down to the table to see the other differences between the 3rd and 4th gen:

Why would you buy this when you can get the iPad 4 new one for $440?
With $60 gift cards from target and bestbuy

Not a good deal at all

iPad 4 is the new one 4th generation

pauladams11 11-20-2012 04:41 PM

It's funny to me to read the comments (e.g., at the iphonehacks article, linked above) and see people complaining about Apple coming out with the 4th gen so soon after the 3rd gen, as if it suddenly makes their iPad 3 work differently than when they bought it. I understand the anger when things like OS upgrades make older hardware have problems with apps that worked fine before, but don't the consumers end up winning in the end when there's a shorter development cycle? Better hardware sooner, discounted hardware giving users the choice to buy "latest and greatest" at a premium price, or "yesterday's hardware" (that's just fine for most of us) for less?

It's really the only reason we were able to justify the recent iPad 3 ("refurb") purchase -- a $500 piece of equipment for $379. Seems to me the short dev cycle would hurt more than help Apple in the long run, but I'll let them run their business their way. <shrug>

I'm bummed... with tax, the Target deal is only $30 off. And it's not even saving $ b/c its a GC so you have to pay full price at checkout anyways.

x2ruff4u 11-20-2012 06:23 PM

iPad 4 is not even worth it. Your better off with the iPad 3 with ios 6. What applications even use the iPad 4 speeds? I can't think of any and the iPad 3 can run them all with no hiccup.

Its not about a shorter development cycle, its about an unpredictable one.

I know it sounds silly to get upset that a newer better product gets released rather than held back but when you tend to ride the bleeding edge of technology by trading-in/selling every generation then you suffer some very drastic losses if you hold on to it that long. Im not mad at the iPad 4 because I sold our iPad3 early and got nearly full price to buy two iPad Mini's but I can see how others can be mad because their $600 iPad3 ended up being valued at half the cost because they were caught by surprise by a new version.

This frustration is annoying to people who aren't affected, but if anything then its a big lesson for Apple fans and next update there will be much less complaining.

Actually, he is right. The 4th Gen iPad is called 'iPad with Retina Display'. Apple doesn't call it iPad 4. The way it was written, it's easy to assume he was saying only the 4th Gen has retina display, but that wasn't what he was implying.

Retina rocks!

I just bought a Ipad3 refurb as a gift for my mom a few weeks back. After CA tax the total was $417. It arrived packaged as if it was new. There was no defects or signs of use. Runs flawlessly.

Maybe so, but don't put the guy down for sharing his personal experience.

You are way too sensitive, newbie. You are going to have a really hard life. I only asked him if there was reason to believe there could be a problem before I decide to order.

You are also a busy body. You know what they say about busy bodies...

Quite the contrary...I've been blessed with a great job, family and friends, but that's neither here nor there.


I apologize if your original comment was not meant to be snarky, but I have my doubts....:)

Either way, I'll shut up so the thread can get back on topic.

You're right, that those who are always buying the "latest and greatest" will pay the most, but isn't that their choice? I'm not really "annoyed" so much as confused by why someone would make such a choice (that is, take a loss on sale of their iPad 3 to gain an incremental upgrade in the iPad 4). If I had been in the early-iPad-3-adopter's shoes, I certainly wouldn't have expressed my displeasure with Apple by giving them more of my money. The hardware holds its value fairly well, so I'd have held onto it until the iPad 5 came out, and sold the iPad 3 then (for not much of a loss). The beauty of the free market is that by doing this, Apple will drive away some of those "early adopters", who will change their habits and wait a generation or two before upgrading (or drive them to a competitor's product). Eventually, they'll see that in their bottom line and adjust as necessary.
