    I'm curious as to how good this new retina display is. Is it blow away or is it just "good"?

    Any other things you think are great let me know.

    I'm guessing the retina display is the same as your 4S, so you can look at your phone to see how good it is.

    It's a different PPI and resolution. Not to mention the size difference.

    It couldn't be any more HD. It is gorgeous, but it's still just an iPad. I need something more exciting to really get my blood pumping and to be blown away, but I'm really into tech and I'm impressed by this display.

    so it's like a stupid guy with no Helmet doing a stunt compared to a moron with a helmet pretending to be cool by trying to impressing some girl he'll never get, but none are like the cool guy that gets laid with hot chicks every night because he's super cool.
    Got it, thanks :D

    Coming from the first generation model, like I did, I believe it is worth the upgrade, but not as big a deal if you already have the 2.

    Not worth the $500 more IMO. Would I like it? Yes. But do I think it's really worth it? No.

    It is a blow away in my opinion. I love it and can't put it down, but then again I was an iPad virgin.

    Just to confirm. The upgrade from 2 to new is worth it.

    I can't speak on that. I never owned an iPad before so I am blown away. This thing ROCKS! I love it. I can say that if I were an owner of the iPad 2 I would get the iPad 3 without hesitation, but that's just how I do. I went from the 3G to the 3GS to the 4 to the 4S so you can't go by me. The main reason is I want the newest one of whatever it is with the newest hardware, so I'll buy it.

    If you want a clear beautiful HD screen and a faster processor and a little better camera to do all your iPadding on, then go for it. If you can do without the screen and the bump in speed and the camera then keep what you got and save your $ for the next iteration.

    The upgrade, if I were an iPad 2 owner, would be worth it to me.

    Faster and prettier. Two really good qualities in a lot of things that make people part with their $. :D

    I'm already thinking about if I'll get the next iteration next year, and the answer is yes.
