I just got back from the Verizon store comparing the iPad 3 to the 2. They guy brought a 2 so I could compare. To be honest, with the exception of text, I did NOT see that much of a difference...and this is a SIDE BY SIDE comparison! Text did look a bit better..but the 2 still is NOT bad on the eyes. But videos & apps (games) weren't that much better. I do understand that the developers haven't created apps to utilize the new screen yet...but by time there are a lot of "retna apps" on the market we'll be talking about the iPad 4!!
I was going to buy my mom's iPad 2 when she upgraded to the new iPad but after seeing her display I bought a new iPad and she sold the iPad 2 on eBay.
Seriously, the users that can hardly see any difference in the screens really need to have their eyes checked o.O
I put on my glasses, and ... WOW !!!
If buying the new iPad over the iPad 2 is all about the screen, count me in! I can't wait for the new iPad to arrive in our country, South Africa !!!

I am still happy with my iPad2 for the time being. And come there 2013, we get a new iPad for sure.
Because in the end, as nice as the display of the new iPad is, it still feels more like a iPad2S than really a iPad3.
