Holy Cow! This retina screen is amazing. I mainly do reading on my ipad and the sharper text is soooooo nice. It's Great to visit a busy news blog and be able to easily read all the headlines before enlarging anything. It's the main reason I didn't go with the cheaper ipad mini, I just couldn't see "upgrading" to an ipad with the same fuzzy text. The screen on this retina ipad is unlike anything I've ever experienced (except iPhone), its like its not an electronic device but a magical window into a colorful alternate dimension. I hated reverse pinching text on my ipad 1 all the time and now with this new ipad that is completely eliminated. I used to marvel at how much sharper my iPhone screen was than my ipad and now they are the same. My hat is off to Apple for raising the bar.
