    IMHO the lightning adaptor should replace all the stinking USB plugs in all there assorted shapes!!

    It's a matter of degree, but IMO there is plenty of room for less weight before usability will be impacted. We are in no danger of having an iPad that is too light...

    I agree. It won't happen those because everyone would have to pay apple. Lighting, as a connector, beats most of computer connectors I have used.

    I bought an iPad 4 on the last day of 2012 and while I love it even I have to admit that it is a bit too heavy for comfortable use in one hand. If Apple can shave off a quarter or even third of its weight to make it easier to hold in one hand, for reading magazines and books for example, whilst avoiding making the iPad feel too light and plasticky then, I for one, would be happy. True, you get used to the weight of the iPad 4 and the heft and aluminium back does give it a quality feel missing from other tablets but there's no getting around the fact that it is heavy. I was actually quite surprised by how heavy it was actually having never used or held an iPad before.
