    I recently sold my ipad 3 to upgrade to ipad 4. Then I heard Ipad 5 could be out in months!
    My only issue with ipad 3 was the weight. Its causes a little strain holding it up after a while. So I welcome that Ipad 5 will be lighter. But will the display be of the same quality as the Retina on the Ipad 3 and 4? I keep hearing talk of how ipad 5's display is thinner and all and backlit by a single led backlight instead of two. But does that really sound like an improvement? I mean one less led backlight sounds less bright. It is a given Ipad 5 will have faster processors, be thinner, lighter, and smaller than my old Ipad 3. But if the display isnt as beauutiful id rather get a bulky ipad 4. Your thoughts?

    If you have the patience and wait a few months than I would wait until the 5 is out.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    They say the iPad 5 may be here in September.....I would wait and then have a look and compare the 2 iPads then. That being said I plan on getting the 5 and can't wait to see it!
