    It is not until i purchase the new ipad that i find*out that though it is perfect for my needs,*its far behind in specs.This is typical of Apple to be under spec'ed considering the Macbook Pro is underwelming in every hardware dimention. I was not expecting it to be the same for ipad. At the end of the day i am happy with the ipad on the weight of cons vs pros. I was under the impression that Apple will see a fall in sales and rep for thier lack in specs in both Macs and ipads. With quality andriod tablets coming out with real quadcore graphics and much more RAM, apple will have to up the game. Apple needs to stop charging such high prices for such a low spec'ed machine. For $500 i saw much justice in my ipad purchase, same for itouch. As for MAC, its very underwelming if you look deep under the hood compared to quality PC's of same price.

    what are the main future impressions of ipad 3? maybe better utilizing of the graphics engine because i see no real differ compared to the ipad 2 to make me jump my pants. my hopes to far up?

    Far behind in what specs??????

    Dual core 1Ghz CPU.
    Quade Core GPU.
    1 GB of RAM.
    226 PPI screen.

    The reason Android tablets need 1.5 Ghz dual cores or quad core CPUs is so than can KEEP UP WITH the iPad. Android apps are running in the Dalvik VM which adds overhead. Plus their Java apps tend to be bloated with so many permissions that run in background it requires serious speed just to mask the issue from the end user.

    Yeah, if you think you got ripped off, please take the iPad back ASAP and get an Android tablet. I can't wait to hear how you are doing after six months with Android.

    The day Android switches to native applications like iOS is the day I will reconsider using Android after the debacle that was the Xoom and the next two generation of tablets.

    What is unreal with the quadcore graphics on the iPad?

    And by the way there will always be other units beating Apple Devices on hardware specs.
    But the specs were never the main part why Apple was and will be successfull. It's also the operating system.
    Combine both and you know why the iPads are leading.

    Well your impression that iPad sales will drop certainly have not happened yet, and especially given Apple's earnings report this week I do not see that happening anytime soon. Remember hardware is only one of the many things that make an efficient tablet. You can have a tablet that has alienware specs but if it does not have a great operating system it is all for not. All you need to do to prove this is take an iPhone and a high end android phone and turn them on. Right after they turn on enter a function that allows you to enter text and you will notice how an android will lag, even though it has a higher processor than the iPhone. As for ram, I see no reason why a tablet needs more than 1GB given what you use a tablet for unless you plan to somehow play a game like X Plane while at the same time listen to music and send emails as well.

    Please just take your iPad 3 back now...hurry up. Get some Android that will have the specs you so greatly desire...and then next year it will have practically no resale value....while in the meantime it will be force closing on you. :)

    hmm.. all my blog stated was that i was hoping the ipad would have consolidated alot more punch inside its shell. Also, i am not stating a android vs ios. its more*spec vs spec in hardware. i was hoping the ipad was similar to the quadcores in the tablets but they are not. i am not taking my ipad back for the fact it does what i want it to do with out crashes. sorry if i was misleading.

    still have not answered*my questions

    from my research, it says the ipad 2 trails the ipad 3 in graphics not far behind. considering the graphics are doubled on the ipad 3....i was wondering when developers where going to start utilizing its potential? if developors will even dish the funds to utilize all four cores. Kinda like how the ps3 is only using 3 cores of its 7 only because funding the development would be sky high

    Maybe i am confused. 2 cores of cpu and 4 core of gpu? or...2 cores if cpu and the other 2 used to control the more demanding retina screen? i was under the impression the gpu and cpu where one in the same sorta like the AMD A series.

    You only asked two question. The first question makes no logical sense since the iPad (3rd Gen) is already here yet you asked about "future impressions". The second is impossible to answer because it is based on your opinion.

    Do you have any other questions that you believe we should have inferred from your opinion?
