    iPad 3 impression...sorely disappointed!

    Have had my new iPad since Friday and so far I can't see ANY improvemnt in the display quality or in the processor speed.
    I'm beginning to wonder if the guts of the thing are really upgraded! The camers port appears a tad larger so I guess it really does have
    a better camera but I've not made a comparison of that feature yet.

    I guess this will teach me not to buy until I've actually seen a new version in the flesh. I fell for apple's marketing hype.

    Unless I'm missing something I would advise folks to just buy an iPad2 and save money. An iPad2 can be had for half the price of the new one
    if you are willing to buy a used one.

    Oh well, it's still a great product and I am passing my iPad2 on to a family member so it isn't a total loss

    Well, some people like just to not be hungry. Others, like to enjoy food.

    I'm beginning to wonder if mine really does have the retina display. I've placed them side by side and looked at quite a few differnt screens and can't see any quality
    improvement at all in the iPad3. I imagine determining that would be virtually impossible though.

    Open up iBooks on the iPad 2 and the new iPad, then tell me that you can't see see a difference. Give developers time to upscale apps to utilize the new iPads resolution....people are complaining that they can't see a difference because not all apps are set up for other....give it time.

    OK, I'll make the iBooks comparison. Thanks for the tip.
