Ballsy move. I mean, it is hinted that it'll be a powerful A8 processor, thinner, with the print reader. And should be the same dimensions face-wise. But who knows what'll be in store for it. Or the price. Can't be anything too terrible though.

I've waited it out. I've never had an iPad yet, only phone. This seems to be the perfect time to strike. And I'm curious to see how many of my apps are universal haha

Less than you think lately :)

It's not much of a risk for me to sell now, and I get the best return price on the one I sold. I have a feeling they know to make it faster and or lighter, either is worth it for me. Though I certainly have my fingers crossed for 2GB of RAM more than anything.

Curious about the iMacs too, the wife want's to upgrade her older iMac, not sure if we're going back to a laptop or a new iMac yet. Will see.

releasing a 13" iPad might sway me, if they add stylus support (for drawings) I'm sold.

Apple will never add official stylus support. What's wrong with the current batch of stylii though, I have one to use with Sketchpad Pro, works fine.

There are rumours about a 12" ipad for 2015, I am also quite interested in having more real state for Lemur.

Not sure I'd want a bigger iPad to be honest. At that point it's almost the size and weight of my laptop....

What I've seen for writing and taking notes?! Sure.
For actually drawing it's like wearing boxing gloves...

For music apps in general I think more screen real estate = the holy grail.

So 12", 13.3" even 15"... bring 'em!!!

(I think a lot of professional apps would benefit from bigger iPads, not just music.)
