    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.

    I absolutely agree. I upgraded from an iPad 2 to the iPad 4 and I can't get over this display. I thought it as nice to have on my iPhone but it is amazing on the larger form factor iPad. Simply amazing.

    I still use my iPad 1 and 2, along with iPad 4. The retina screen is nice, but the biggest selling point for me was speed. Love the zippiness of iPad 4 vs. iPad 1 or 2. When I download apps or other content, iPad 4 flies. My other iDevices crawl by comparison.

    Sad thing is I still see people saling iPad 1 for 500$ and worse people paying that.... They most have no clue about the other updates.... Why get a 1 when u can get the 4 for the same price....

    No sympathy for people that can't do 15 minutes of research.
    With the abundance of information resources there is no one to blame but yourself IMHO.

    There's lot of places selling <older> iPads for a premium......QVC comes to mind. :thumbsdown:

    Crazy. They're starting at about $125 on eBay and Craigslist, from what I've seen. Some people price them higher, but don't necessarily get any takers.

    Since the iPad minis are so hard to find like I want, I think I will buy a nice iPad4 64gb WiFi.

    Amazon sellers are notorious of jacking up prices over the average price.

    I can see paying a bit more for something on Amazon vs Craigslist or eBay, because the service is good and there's more peace of mind, depending on how or where else you might buy, but not that much more!

    Oh yeah but sometimes those sellers take pricing way to far to the point it seems almost like price gouging.

    But still I don't feel sorry for those who don't do any research and get burned by their lack of due diligence. As the old saying goes "Caveat Emptor".
