I love my ipad!

I absolutely love my new 3rd generation iPad. I bought it a few months ago and use it all the time. The graphic display is great, it is fast and just overall awesome. The only thing I regret is not buying a larger ipad. I went with the 16GB version thinking I wouldn't need that much space, but with all the awesome apps out there, I probably should've purchased the 32 BG version.

Still the gold standard

In a sense, you know what you're getting going in, but that's a good thing. By far the best display on any tablet (and probably better than on the computer you have at home). Tons of iPad-native apps and a simple user interface. A surprisingly good rear camera -- not that you'd normally run around snapping photos or videos with a slate! The catch on this particular model is just having 16GB of storage, which is good enough for games, e-mail, the web and streaming video, but will feel a bit small if you want to save a lot of copies locally (especially magazines).

No# 1 Tablet

I agree with the last reviewer, if anything the iPad 3 is way underrated! You have to see it in person, it smokes the iPad 2 in display clarity, smoothness, and sharpness. The quad graphics processor renders stunning graphics on apps. The least talked about feature, the voice dictation is awesome!

The 'New" iPad is so underrated! The speed is amazing. Graphics are fluid, games and apps respond instantly. The resolution is the new standard and cannot be beat by any other tablet. I've tried the rest, this IS the best. Way better even than it's predecessor. Worth every penny!
