got me a new ipad a week ago. gave my old reliable ipad1 away. here is a small review of pros and cons of the ipad 4. compared to my old ipad1. pros battery life longer NO MORE CRASHING!!! speed very fast smother videos, movies and pictures are stunning a major upgrade. the sound is a little richer. could be the case I use tho. NO MORE CRASHING!!! more responsive when fixing typing errors. like if I wanted to place the cursor between 2 letters it goes there. can video my golf swing. before I had to video with I phone and transfer to ipad. cons takes longer to charge gets a little hotter don't like the lighting port thing, feels fragile, I like the big plug, was easier to use plus I have like 8 million of the old plugs. I would say the upgrade to the new ipad from the first gen. was well worth it.
