    The screen.

    If you need LTE, that is simply gravy.

    Honestly, the screen seems the only really tangible upgrade. I played with my cousins iPad 3 last week and that was all that stood out. Didn't feel any faster or do anything else that blew me away. I'm good with the 2 for a while, me thinks.

    I inherited my wife's iPad 2 when I got her the iPad (3rd Gen). The only thing that bothers me is reading text. On her's it is crystal clear and on mine it simply isn't. But the real kicker is when you take iPhone apps on the iPad (3rd Gen) and 2X them. They look incredible compared to the iPad 2 doing the same thing. It is such a large difference my wife offered to buy me my own iPad (3rd Gen).

    That doesn't apply to me but I certainly understand that being a big plus for users of those services. ;)

    I'm thinking 2 owners should sell their devices quick before people start figuring out how great the 3rd gens are.

    Good luck with yours!

    eBay is averaging $285 for my model. Not sure if it is worth selling at that price.

    I remain surprised that ipad2 owners that bought iPad are not citing the camera upgrade as the most noticeable if not significant improvement to the device.

    I do not discount the display or processor upgrades, all I mean is the improvement to the camera is the most noticeable, at least to me.

    I don't think so. Especially If you paid 829.99 for it.

    Yes the screen is obviously improved, much sharper and certainly easier to read text, but possibly not like WOW... i've gotta buy this, on films its not a massive improvement, buy very noticable on text AIS.

    One of the things I was pleased to note, was how much faster web pages loaded compared to my iPad 1 (my wife now uses this) when comparing the 2 models, the iPad3 had loaded the page while the progress bar in Safari was only halfway across on the iPad1, so that really was nice to see, though it's possible that the iPad2 already has faster web browsing than the iPad1 anyway. I also think the sound is better that my Ipad1, but again the iPad2 has similar design to the new one so that may well be the same too.

    So I suppose it's really down to the screen, as other differences would not be so great if moving up from an iPad2. In my case I wanted a second iPad so my wife could have my iPad 1 64/3g model, which sorta gave me the reason I needed to buy the 3, plus being a pensioner, I likely have more money than sense..lol.

    Personally, if one has a iPad2 and it does the job, I don't think I'd be rushing to get the iPad3, unless you have a genuine reason or can get a decent price for your iPad2, and most importantly of course, without it impacting one's finances too much. When I was queueing last Friday for mine, I was surprised how many young people were buying their iPads on easy payment finance, but thats their choice of course. I'm 68 so I suppose if one doesn't have any money at my age, your'll likely never have any..lol

    Well ya, videos are going to look pretty similar because of the videos, not screen.
    People are saying that to get the best effect right now is to rip blue ray movies with that quality to tell.
