No, the difference in size and weight from the 2 to the 3 was noticeable. To this day my ipad 4 (and 3 before it) feel like they are a bit fat where the design doesn't really allow it. Never felt that way with the 2.

I get a similar feeling with my 13 rMBP (the misleading thinness due to the curved bottom). Might just be me, but it seems that the new designs coming out are a lot less "honest". The ip5 is a masterpiece though.

I agree that the weight is definitely perceptible. But I don't think the thickness difference is truly that perceptible. .03" is less than 1/32", which is a very small amount. I think the weight makes it feel thicker than it is.

I have an iPad 4, and a friend of mine has an iPad 2. I don't notice a significant difference in thickness between the two. Lest you say I'm just not noticing it, until about 6 months ago, my job required me to work with thicknesses down to .0008".

-FWIW, my handle is iThink_ergo_iMac. There seems to be some confusion on this issue.-

I want a nice chunky 3/4 inch thick iPad mini with some 30-40 hours battery life.
I've had enough of this super thin nonsense.

Oh yes, A6 and more ram please
You might be interested in this case. It is basically a Smart Case, it's cheap, and it has good reviews. Just discovered it when watch casing reviews on YouTube.
