But the real question is “Do you need it?”
Well, Iâ€™m here to help.
Should I buy the new iPad if I have an iPad 1 or 2?
Yes. Itâ€™s new, and therefor infinitely better than anything old. You should buy it as soon as humanly possible.
But what if I want to skip this one and get the next iPad?
No, you need this one. Right now. Next year is far away and you canâ€™t live for a year without this.
The iPad 2 is cheaper now at $399. Should I buy that?
No. if you get last yearâ€™s model youâ€™ll just look an uncool, cheap bastard. And youâ€™ll be stuck looking that way until you upgrade in five years.
Black or white?
Both. Donâ€™t be racist.
4G or no 4G?
4G. Can you live your life without being connected to the internet? I know I canâ€™t. Get the 4G so you never have to be alone, even for a single, solitary moment.
16, 32, or 64 GB?
Just get the biggest one. Youâ€™re going to need space for apps and cat photos.
AT&T or Verizon?
Whichever you consider to be less evil.
Covers and Accessories?
Pimp out that iPad with as many accessories and cases as you can. It should basically look like a blingee.
When should I buy this new piece of magical technology?
Yesterday. Or as soon as you possibly can. Wait out in the rain for months if necessary. And get me a couple too.
What about an alternative tablet, like a Kindle Fire?
No. Just no. There is only the iPad. Â Anything else is just crap.
