    I changed from 2 to 3. Sold my old iPad 2 for $500 and bought the 4G 64gb iPad 3. I love the display, but hate the battery. I think iPad 1 had the best battery life of the 3. I also like the 4g feature, which I didn't have before. If I had it to do over, I would still sell the 2 and buy the 3.

    Actually an interesting question. IMO the greatest leap was from the 2 to the 3.

    For me it's easy. I did not buy into the 1 or 2, Because they just were not enough,
    but got the 3 on day one. And I am completely happy with my choice.

    I bought the 3 because my wife has been wanting an iPad. I struck a deal with her taking my 2 and I buy a 3 with 64G. The 2 only has 16G and I justified it because I use my iPad for work.

    As far as the screen is concerned, I really cannot notice the difference. Nor is the speed. I probably won't upgrade for a while even the rumor of 4 coming out by year's end.

    I have not noticed the long charging time. In fact, my 3 charges up just as fast as the 2.

    No wait!! I take it back. When put side by side, the display of 3 is much superior. And I mean MUCH. Funny I never compared the two till just now.

    I think the 2-3 upgrade was a small bit larger. The 1-2 was about the same improvement in processor gain, but the cameras were not much to write home about. The most significant change was the reduction in weight and thickness. 4G and the retina display are huge leaps by comparison. A lot of it boils down to what is desired by the individual.

    I sold my ipad 2 for 500$ so I put a bit more and got the 3. For me it is justifiable, but it all depends on you.
