MakeUseOf exists to provide you, our readers, with knowledge that you can make use of. Be it apps for smartphones and tablets, tips and tricks for operating systems, or opinion pieces to get you thinking about things in a different way. However, this isn’t a one-way street. Readers can help other readers by adding to the weight of knowledge channeling through the site.
In this new weekly column we’ll be posing a question to you, our (gorgeous and handsome) readership, and letting you inform us and each other. The question will be posed on a Wednesday, with the results and a brief discussion about them appearing the following Tuesday.
This Week’s Question…
What Would Make You Buy An Apple iPad 3?
In this week’s MakeUseOf Poll, Yaara asked whether you’re likely to buy an iPad 3 or not. I’ve voted, and so should you. Now that you have, and whichever way you voted, I want to know what would make you go out and buy an iPad 3. It is set to be unveiled on March 7th, and likely to be released a month later. Which features or improvements matter the most to you?
Will you be happy merely with incremental hardware improvements such as a faster processor (possibly quad-core) and more RAM? Will an iPhone 4S-style ‘Retina Display’ be enough to persuade you to part with your cash? How about 4G? Or Siri integration? Or better cameras? Will size matter (at least on this occasion)? Or would lowering the price be the best thing that Apple could do to guarantee mainstream iPad sales?
Let us know your thoughts on this question in the comments section. And feel free to respond to others’ views on the subject while you’re at it. Debate is good, as it means we’re more likely to reach some definitive conclusions as to what potential iPad 3 buyers really want to see Apple do with its latest hardware release. And you never know, someone from Apple might stumble across this post and end up reading your comments. Stranger things have happened.
We’ll meet back here next Tuesday to discuss the results. Don’t be late.
