Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong area, I just registered to get some advice from you guys as to which to get (see topic).
I am really having a tough time deciding between the two. I have used both, and loved the iPad 2,4 with its enhanced battery life and staying cool, but I also appreciate the retina display a lot (also worried about discolored screens however). Most other features aren't really a selling point for me and I will be getting wifi only so 4g doesn't appeal.
I would like others opinions and pros and cons of each not just specs but personal experience and if at this point in time the iPad 2 revision with the newer chipset is still a worthy investment or if I just just pony up for the 3. I'm a moderate to heavy user so the battery life concerns me. Do you find it is ok even when streaming movies and playing games for several hours?
I will mainly be web surfing, casual gaming, app use such as flipboard and steaming movies. I'd like to save the extra money of course but I wonder if I might be better served in resale value down the line with the 3 as well.
Do the charge times and lower battery life of the 3 annoy you or is it not a problem? Anyone choose the iPad 2 recently or is it not a good idea to buy one this late in the game?
Thanks so much for anyone's experiences and insight!
