    Most of the new iPad "Issues" are false.... People complaining about battery heat is not an issue. Wifi problems is probably 1 out of thousands. Don't get the iPad 2 and get the new iPad, that screen is beautiful and the 1 Gig of RAM makes a difference.

    Get the new iPad!!!!!!! :) and in White.

    Perspective is important. 3 million + iPad3's. A tiny percentage have problems.
    If you take the plunge and don't like it, return it for a full refund ;)

    I love mine , but this corner (bottom left in landscape) yellow issue is driving me crazy. Very small, but I can see it. Going to the Apple store tomorrow. This is the 2nd one I have had screen tint problems with. The first one was really bad.

    I had to say that there are many issues on the new iPad have been exaggerated, in fact, it is still a wonderfull tablet.

    I decided not to look for problems that are not there. Other words, I'm not swapping.

    I bought an original iPad and for two years did not have one problem in regular use. I bought a new iPad which I received on time, the first day it was available. I have not had one problem with it. With any device, there is a learning curve. There are also those who want to find fault because of varied personal issues.

    If you had an iPad 2, I'd advise to stick with it.
    Since you don't, I'll suggest you get the iPad 3

    I have had a Nook color and HP Touchpads and another Android tablet. I jumped on the iPad because I'm a screen junky. I loved the screen the moment I saw it, and retina is pretty crazy. Although I prefer AMOLED displays, the retina is pretty amazing.

    As far as the upsides/downsides here is my take as a non iOS user prior to my iPad.

    Positives:
    Screen is amazing
    Battery life rocks ( 10+ hrs easy especially on my wifi model. I have been on it all day, recorded about 15minute of video at the air show and played air supremacy online for 30 minutes and I have 15% left since 9am.)
    Well built (feels good after playing with some 'premium' tablets using plastic for the rear panel)
    iOS is built for tablets. Sliding panels in twitter and most other apps is very nice.
    The camera is amazing for a tablet (see included photo)

    Negatives:
    iOS gets annoying (lack of a back button, most navigation buttons on top of screen gets old in portrait mode)
    A little heftier than the iPad2 but it's worth the extra weight.

    Not a factor:
    Warm back - don't listen to the others. The back gets warm but is nothing unusual. If you've ever picked up your laptop after running for a while and it's warm under it, that's what it feels like.

    All in all I love my iPad and wouldn't trade it for anything at this point.
