Will You Buy the New iPad?

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - Apple (AAPL - Get Report) announced its new iPad on Wednesday, and now consumers have to figure out or not whether they want to plunk down their hard-earned cash for it.

The feature set was largely known already, as countless rumors and leaks pretty much told everyone what was going to be in it.

The third-version of the iPad includes Retina Display, Long Term Evolution (LTE) capability to run on 4G networks from AT&T (T - Get Report) and Verizon (VZ - Get Report). The 9.7-inch tablet also has a new iSight back-end 5 megapixel camera, and a quad-core microprocessor as the major differences from the previous versions of the tablet.

Still, some consumers, tech pundits and bloggers were disappointed Apple did not include Siri on the iPad, although it did say it has voice dictation on the tablet. Others were disappointed Apple did include haptic feedback, which adds vibration or motion.

It's been three days since Apple announced its new iPad. Were you impressed enough with what CEO Tim Cook and team had to say to buy a new one? TheStreet wants to know if you plan to purchase the next iPad once it is released.

Results of the poll will be available Monday morning.

After finding out the latest features, will you buy the new iPad?

Yes -- I pre-ordered it already.
Yes -- I will buy it eventually
No -- I already own a previous iPad. I see no reason to upgrade.
No -- I will buy another tablet or none at all.
