    And Dictation. Dictation is kind of cool.

    The general consensus of the media was that if you had an iPad 2 there was no compelling reason to upgrade. The additions were good, but not you-can't-live-without-it good. But if you were buying your first iPad, then the new iPad was the way to go, unless you were under budget constraints that made the iPad 2 your only choice.

    Or simply, it wasn't worth the price of a new iPad just to get the new features, but those features are worth the extra $100 if you are buying an iPad anyway.

    All based on your budget and what you consider important, of course. I upgraded more because I wanted more storage and 3G than the retina display, but I'm certainly not disappointed by that display.

    I don't understand what your saying the big joke is? Basic differences are obvious in the screen resolution. If you cannot tell the difference just by looking at the home screen then open a webpage and zoom in on a word as far as it will go. The difference should then be very obvious.

    Last week my brother-in-law handed me his iPad. I thought there was something wrong with the screen. Turned out it was an iPad 2. The iPad 3 is my first iPad. The difference to me in image quality was extremely obvious. Though to be fair, I have really good eyesight.

    I don't have an ipad3
    but is there a difference when playing a video with 720p?

    I know that the screen resolution for the first two gen is 768 (above the 720)
    but will the quality be better with the 1536 on the ipad3?
    or it looks the same?

    The CPU and memory are slightly different (1gb ram vs 512mb ) . iPad 3 is also smaller(thinner) . 1080p camera vs 720p;
    2048×1536 resolution.

    Pretty sure Ipad 3 is actually .5mm thicker then 2 because of battery size increase. Also heavier then 2 but lighter then 1.

    I actually had a 2 at first as a gift. After reading differences I returned it for the 3 for the extra $100.00. I'm glad I did, text is much nicer for reading, and clarity is outstanding compared to good on the 2. Also, the voice dictation works excellent, and works almost anywhere you would type in text.

    I came from an iPad 1, so the difference is substantial for me.

    Not really understanding the "big joke" but speed and picture quality alone are a huge upgrade.
