The fourth generation iPad is now here. That means the third-gen iPad you bought just six months ago is a big pile of silicon dust: twice as slow as the new iPad, without a new connector, with none of its advantages.

Hey, bummer. Apple feels for you, man. That’s why they’re discontinuing the third-gen iPad and selling you the iPad 4 starting at just $379 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model, just $50 more than a base 16GB iPad mini.

The 32GB and 64GB models are $469 and $549. Want a top of the line 64GB iPad with LTE? It’ll cost you $679 refurbished. At the low end, you can buy a refurbished iPad 3 for the price of a brand new iPad 2.

    Totally! Who do these whores think they are, spec bumping their product after only 6 months! This is way worse than having 74,835 different versions of a device!

    You said “That’s why they’re discontinuing the third-gen iPad and selling you the iPad 4 starting at just $379 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model…”

    Shouldn’t that be, “iPad 3 starting at just $379”? Cause all those iPads listed in your Apple link are the iPad 3 with the now old A5X.

    iPad4 for $379? Not really, its the iPad3 for $379 (unless you were being sarcastic)

    Apple got in a mess in the UK and Australia for their LTE chip not working on the LTE frequencies in those countries. They got in trouble for advertising LTE in those countries when the frickin’ iPad would not even catch LTE there. SO, they HAD to update the iPad with the new LTE chip, and so then why not (while you’re changing production to integrate the new chip anyway) give the rest a bump while you have the A6X already developed as well? That’s my 2 cents…
