The new retina display is really great. If you use your ipad for reading books/magazines, i think you should buy the new ipad. Good luck
Agree with Hierro, if clarity of screen is what you need, then upgrade to the new one. If simply doing it for bragging rights, then stick to the ipad2.

Why? You don't get bragging rights with old tech. For that you need new tech.Originally Posted by RW2112

You should take a breath and make a decision based on how you use your iPad and the new improvements.
I went from a 2 to the new one because I needed more memory. Other than that and when I use the better camera, day to daiy I notice no difference between the units.
I have an iPad 2 and I've tried the iPad 3 from what I can see I wouldn't the retina display doesn't look very different and I could care less about the camera
use the ipad 3 for a week, then go back to an ipad 2.thereafter conclude if the retina display doesn't look very different.
if after this, you still see no difference, i'd highly recommend an eye exam.
I know. That's what I mainly use it for.Originally Posted by Hierro
Good points! I have the iPad 2 64GB wi-fi model. I use it mainly for reading, and some for gaming. The camera and LTE capabilities are bonuses.Originally Posted by Biddy44
Really! Wow... There's a huge different in the text. It's like the difference between the iPhone 3GS screen versus the 4& 4S screen. But I get your point. That's the reason I'm hesitant about buying it. Honesty I would benefit more if I waited and purchased the up and coming iPhone.Originally Posted by cellur111
