Yeah this is the point my friend made last night when I linked him to this topic. I have actually taken the iPad seriously since the beginning however only the iPad 3 just recently has made me consider buying one due to the retina display. I am still happy though with my Mini hooked up to my HDTV for the time being though.
I can't wait to see what the next iPad brings.
Having said that, I still want to see what happens with the Mac Pro. I still feel there's life in it.
