    Or those who owned the iPad 2 and upgraded to the 3 how obviously is the weight difference. Does the iPad 3 feel a lot heavier then the 2?

    I didn't own an iPad 2 but I now own a 3 and in the shop compared the weight difference. The iPad 3 is heavier but not by alot. It's noticeable side by side but after a day I'd say you wouldn't be none the wiser unless you had an iPad 2 to hand as well.

    Miniscule difference, inconsequential. I have had all three.

    I compared two wifi iPads today. My iPad 3 Wifi, and my dads iPad 2 wifi. I notice a weight difference, quite a lot actually. After a while of holding, the iPad 2 is much much comfier and nicer to hold. Although the iPad 3 is better in every other respect :)

    Really? It is just a little ove 1.5 ounce difference. I find them completely interchangeable comfort-wise.

    Maybe thinking about it makes it seem heavier.

    It's a mind thing.....once you know it is heavier, your mind just confirms the idea.

    Yeah. I know it is heavier but I also know it took me 4 days to realize it so for me, mentally, it is a wash. Technically the 3 is my wife's ipad so that is how little of an issue it is. We were playing that stupidly addictive drawing game all weekend.

    It's heavier and noticeable, especially if you owned the 2 for a while. But I don't consider it a problem, really.
