There is no rational reason I need a third-generation.
But I has a sad.
I just replaced my iPad1 with an iPad (3rd Generation). There are some things that the new iPad does much better.
I've also got a bunch of apps that work much, much better with the new iPad, probably a combination of more horsepower and more memory. Darkhorse Comics App, for example had serious issues on the iPad1, and seems to work great on the new iPad.
Anyway, if you do a lot of web browsing it's pretty easy to justify getting a new iPad. That's especially true if you do web reading for work. You can also use the excuse that the new screen will be easier on your eyes.
