Loving mine. I too am updating from the iPad 1 to the new iPad. I've been posting away about it here, too. :D Congrats to all you other happy new iPad owners. Happy iDay.

Loving it. It's noticeably faster on my home wifi network and the display is gorgeous. I just watched the most recent episode of the TV show "New Girl" and though the iPad screen is smaller than my TV it was so incredibly clear I can foresee myself watching more and more TV and movies on it.

I can't really enjoy the screen since I still have the plastic wrapping covering it. My case I ordered didn't come in and all I see is plastic lol. What are some apps that really show how the amazing retina display?

So far I really like it, the only problem is I'm coming from a 150 buck touchpad. This thing is so darn pricey but so nice at the same time lol.

Well I must say I am a disappointed camper. I have the iPad 2 64g WiFi and just received my iPad 3 or HD or whatever 64g WiFi. I have been putting them both through comparisons and I swear I can hardly tell any difference. There is no difference in the speed that I can tell. The colors are a little crisper on the 3 but not for the price I just paid. I fell like a complete idiot actually.

You can always return it.

I'm going to give mine a few days to decide :). Coming from a touchpad it's a huge upgrade, but from what I've read the speed is the same as ipad2. It just has a video card like attachment that helps the CPU out with the extra pixels. Either way I love it but if I had a 64ipad2 I'd probably be returning my iPad new edition.

In the time I have spent using the new iPad, I find some apps are real noticeable. Specifically games that support the retina display are stunning. Browsing the web and even regular apps like Tweetbot are nice, but I am not blown away by them. I need to do more comparisons between my iPad 2 and the new iPad.

I came from a iPad 1 and I feel it was worth the move due to the spped aand memory, the screen difference is not that great to my 65 year old eyes, if I had a iPad2 I think i would be disappointed. Now that is my first impression so i'll re-post in a week or 2

Might as well do a case rewiew, I ordered a Marware, not sure of the model but top of the line looks like Carbon Fiber. It's a well built case and looks like it will be good for protection from a fall. But it is way too heavy for sitin on the couch and surfin so I looked at a ifrogz case at AT&T and really liked it, it was for a 2 and my 3 wouln't fit

Well I am amazed that I can return it even though I had it engraved. I have until the 30th so I will probably test some more but I honestly I cannot tell a $700 difference! LOL
