    Do you get every new generation of a product on all of Apple's product lines within two days of it's release? Lol

    Usually I do. Except iPods until they added facetime.

    idk where you're paying $700 for a new ipad. The price isn't going to go up for the new ipads. You guys really need check how apple does stuff before you make dumb comments.

    As for the wife not wanting the new one, when she finds out that she can video chat with her sis across the country, well, be prepared to drop another $500

If you say because it has a camera I will punch you.
    Ok, If you knew anything about apple, you would realize that their iOS devices run on a year update track (september=new ipods, june-ish=new iphones). Look I don't give a flying **** about it having a camera, but we all know it's gonna have one. Faster processor and better screen and also likely to be included in the new one.

    So tell me, if it was the same price, why wouldn't you wait a month or two and get a better product when it comes out?

    Your job is to help me find the correct ink for my printer (and give me the wrong one so I have come back) at best buy, not decide what is news worthy.

    Most best buy employees aren't very tech savvy. You are better off doing your own research before walking into their stores. Then again, I am not your average best buy shopper.

    Why would you buy online from best buy instead of Apple.com?

    The new one will not have a retinal display this time around. Maybe the 3rd gen. It would be way to expensive.
