All of these discussions are interesting but I am just hoping the camera is better. I love my iPad 2 but the pictures it takes are fuzzy. So I think we all have different reasons for buying a piece of technology and if it meets your needs or wants and is within your financial parameters then you get it. If it doesn't then you don't. I'm old and if it takes better pictures of my grandkids and my garden and they look better on the whatever pixel screen I'll be happy.
