interesting to see what happens if you count tablets as PCs.

Market share isn't as important as profit share, in my opinion.

IDC which (it appears) only tracks the big players and ignores white box completely had iPad at something like 38% so the real numbers are gonna be pretty close I think. My gut still tells me that I was a year too early and that iPad will pull around 20-25%.
Well are you ready to concede good sir?

I bought my son a google nexus for Christmas and that thing is awesome. I have an i-phone and have used the i-pads frequently but for 199.99 that thing is NAILS. I'd venture to say I prefer to the i-pad.

The only sources I have found for accurate numbers that include the shadow market cost big money to get a hold of. I haven't looked in a month though, feel free to put any out there you have. Nothing from IDC since we both know they only go by large brand name numbers. As I said from the onset, it's gonna be a bitch finding numbers. I'm still very confident it will be close regardless. I know the Chinese and even Indian sales of no names tabs ramped up again at the end of last year like they did the year before and Apple's only saving grace was the introduction of the mini otherwise the full size iPad appeared to hit a pretty substantial wall due to what I think is their natural saturation point. No idea really though, the numbers I showed you a LONG time ago came out a full 6 months after the previous year was over... well I'm sure they were out before but they were only FREELY available when I found them.

I'll have some time tomorrow to dig into it some more but if you have an accurate source feel free to throw it out there and I'll look.

So I'm thinking of jumping into the iPad pool....my question is, as a starter is there one that really stands above the others or are they all somewhat similar?

Found some cheap Gen 2's on Craiglist and was just curious outside of the retina display is there that big of a leap forward to the 3 or 4?

Thought about the Mini too but I kinda want something larger.

Thanks...

Older iPads are too slow now.

The Mini is awesome.

That is all.

I couldn't disagree more. It's not like you run Call of Duty or any other games requiring a high performance computer on an iPad. Most people use an iPad to surf the Internet, to read and write email, to read e-books, and to watch movies on Netflix. The older iPads work just fine for this. I have an iPad 2, and it does all of those things perfectly.

What exactly are you doing that would be "too slow" on an older iPad?

I recently bought iPad 2 tablets for my son and daughter. They were brand new in their original packaging, and they were a helluva lot cheaper than the brand new versions.

iPad 2s are great. I still haven't upgraded mine to iOS 7 though. I'm afraid it might slow it down.

Launching apps takes a lot longer on older iPads than the newer ones. They also have to relaunch the app more often as you switch between them.

It's very noticeable if you use an older one after using a newer one.
