    And is it worth it?

    It's either a week away in summer, or an iPad 3!

    So from those of you that made the jump, how satisfied are you?

    I'm very satisfied. Sell the iPad 1 and take a 4 day weekend.

    I have gone from the 1 to 3.

    I am more than happy with mine. Im glad ive missed the 2nd gen as i would probably would have been a little dissapointed going from 2 to 3.

    My iPad 1 was sort of getting sluggish, even when typing sentances the keyboard clicks were off sync with me if you get what i mean. And it was crashing alot on memory hungry games.

    I knew what i was purchasing and im glad ive got
    It now. Suprised how much i use the Camera.

    That's exactly what is happening with mine, but at the same time I'm not sure I can justify it yet when I know I've still got an iPad right I front of me that (apart from the quirks you mentioned) works fine.
    I know that when I see one for the first time I'll probably want it.

    Also what azhepcat said sounds like a tempting idea!
    I have the 32gb wifi version, and it's in gread condition... But I can imagine I wouldn't get much for it as its considered 'old'

    Love it! So happy with the 3rd generation:) My original iPad is still in near perfect condition and I have no plans on getting rid of it either. My six year old has pretty much claimed it as his ;)

    Love love love it! So glad I made the move. My iPad 1 was also getting sluggish and key taps was slow...can't believe how quick the 3 is in comparison....well worth the upgrade!

    I'm from the 1st iPad 3G 32gb, and bought the 3rd gen same model and couldn't be happier... Now my first iPad is collecting dust in my home office.

    Made the jump to the new IPad, happy as hell. The display is fantastic. Went from a 16 gig IPad 1 to a 64 gig new IPad. Found out I use the IPad more then I expected. When I bought the IPad 1 wife thought she had no use for one. Now I can't tear it from her
    hands. Worried I may have to buy her a new IPad and the old one may go to the grand kids. Lol

    I went from a 1st gen iPad 64gb/3g to the iPad3 64gb/4G My wife wanted my iPad 1 so we needed another anyway. She was always on it, and I often had to prise it from her when I needed it...lol Otherwise I may not have bothered upgrading for a while. I think the upgrade from the 1 to the 3 is maybe worthwhile, though if one already has a gen 1 and especially if you have a iPad2 I certainly would'nt say the iPad 3 is a must have, as the earlier iPads are still very good, even the iPad1 is still a pretty effective and useful device to own.

    One of the main differences I noticed quickly, was how much quicker web pages load over the iPad1, the screen which has already been covered numerious times in other threads is obviously better, more detailed, sharper text, which is better for browsing and reading books etc. But the original iPads screens were'nt that bad anyway, they were actually pretty good and still are!. Sound is a little better too when compared to the iPad 1, though about the same as the ipad2 which is to be expected.

    I think the new screen is good and obviously better, but not a big 'WOW.. gotta have one of them feeling.. I think I would have been more excited if Apple had used Samsungs new Super-Oled technology, as I've no doubt that's the directon that most panels will go in the future, currently its all a matter of cost. For example I have a iPhone 4S and the wife uses a Samsung Galaxy S2 phone, and though the S2 has slightly lower resolution it's display is noticable better than my iphone4s, and of course they don't need any backlighting at all, so blacks/colours looks superb.
    Just hope I live long enough to see them introduced widely on TV's I can afford...lol

    My son has a 64gb iPad 2 and we have compared them, and though he says the screen is better especially on text, he reckons he cannot see too much difference on video's/films, though he did admit a blu-ray film I had ripped and installed did look noticable better, but he did say he is not bothering to upgrade again for a while, as he did'nt feel the need.

    I was also hoping Apple would have increased the max memory to 128GB too, so a little disappointed they didn't.
