    Hello,
    I would like to take ur advice on buying the new ipad. I dont have any previous generation but from what i have been hearing so far ( wifi problems, battery problems, heating...) i was wondering if it would be more wise to buy the ipad 2 rather the new ipad.
    Thank you

    I've had no problems with my iPad 3 so far. Wifi is the same as my 2, heating is a little more than my 2, but only on some apps and not uncomfortable, I haven't tested the battery drain, but the 3 does take a lot longer to charge.
    Biggest difference is obviously the resolution. I love the retina display. If you compare the 2 and the 3 side by side and don't care about the resolution difference then go for the 2 as a used one would be way cheaper.

    I had an iPad 2 and loved it. Sold it on Craigslist and bought my iPad 3 and it works even better in some ways and just as good in all other ways. I can feel more warmth than the 2 but no real concern there. No wifi issues. I had an AT&T 32 gig iPad 2 and now have a 64 Verizon iPad 3. It has been JUST GREAT!

    It takes a little longer to charge but I do it every night and after using it a lot all day, I usually have over half the charge left. No issues with that.

    I was in the same boat. I took the dive (or actually my wife bought one for me to shut me up lol) and although I've only had it for a day I LOVE IT. No problems so far at all. I've had 2 iPhones so not much of a learning curve for me. The screen is just awesome...it's hard to explain how cool this thing is. I do recommend a full protective case if you do decide to get one I have the otterbox defender and it's perfect. Hope this helped and good luck...by the way I have the 32gb white Verizon 4g

    Love my 3!! keep in mind millions are sold and yes there will be a few with glitches but apple takes care of those . But they are the exception not the rule. You will always here more about the problems then the ones that have no issue

    I have had no problems with my 3. There are a lot more of us that have had no problems than those that have. The difference is, you typically don't create a thread when you don't have any issues.

    Yes, there are always issues with any products, and some peeps will experience these issues, and some peeps will be extremely unlucky, that's life, but for 99.9% of sales of the new iPad you won't experience any problems and will love it.

    Plus the ones that are happy are busy exploring their new toys or seeking new apps and accessories...

    Can't believe I spent nearly $150 on new apps in the past 2 weeks. Not to mention the case and headset...
