Aye, I had a Samsung Android tab, an hp touchpad (i thought both were perfectly) fine.....however I can without a doubt say, confirm, profess that this new iPad blows the my other tablets out of the water. The nicest thing is the "lag free" environment. Droid And webos were just constant lag outs.This is my first iPad, but not my first tablet. I've had the Windows Tablet PC and just came from the Galaxy Tab. Of them all, the iPad is the coolest and the most user-friendly of those.
I couldn't agree more.Not worth the $500 more IMO. Would I like it? Yes. But do I think it's really worth it? No.
don't give me wrong, I'm sure I would love the new iPad just as much, if not more, than my current iPad 2, I just can't justify losing over $100 to get a retina display or a better camera (used that once or twice on my iPad 2)I actually regret that I returned an iPad 2 when they came out it as it was not "different enough" from my iPad 1.
To me every gram and millimeter counts on a tablet that is held for extended periods of time and in sometimes awkward positions (don't even!). I remember thinking the iPad 2 was "just" light enough to be OK. The iPad 3 has kinda crossed back over that threshold--for me.
Heck the only camera I used was the front one really for facetime. Never used the rear--same with my iPad 3 aside from a few first day test pics.
Maybe I need better glasses or something as the retina display is just not popping out to me like I thought it would.
Good gawd I sound like I could return my 3 for 2 (that one was for you Benny).
That's the key thing, if you can AFFORD, to get it.. Go for it. If you have the iPad 2, really think about it first.don't give me wrong, I'm sure I would love the new iPad just as much, if not more, than my current iPad 2, I just can't justify losing over $100 to get a retina display or a better camera (used that once or twice on my iPad 2)
The iPhone is the one I HAVE to have the newest and bestest, everything else is more than plenty for me.
I encourage everyone to get the new iPad if you can afford it, if not, don't go out and basically give away the iPad 2.
