Whether you like the screen or not...

It's just YOUR opinion. Stop telling everyone else that it definitely sucks or that it's perfectly fine. It's fine to tell people your opinion but to call others liars because they do not share your opinion is about as ignorant as it gets. There is no right answer. Enjoy whichever iPad you prefer.

Yeah I can honestly notice a difference since every apple product I've owned (other than my iMac) has had Retina Display. It's not a deal breaker and ill happily use this until they eventually put retina in it. The size/weight/form are more important to me.

Yes, we know and we established that in several existing threads already. What's the point in bringing this up in a new thread? To cause further pointless and endless debates?

I respect your opinion but let's merge this on the appropriate existing thread.

Agreed. I just saw a new thread. I think the OP of that most recent thread is suicidal about his/her non-retina purchase. So I guess we can forgive him. All e-OPINIONS are a*******.

I remember when people said Apple didn't offer enough choice in their product line. Now that they do, people still whine.

It's amazing isn't it?

i think the frustration comes from all the "my life is complete!" ... "high five omg!" headlines looking for a validation after they just dropped good coin on something which will clearly be obsolete in 7-12 months.

Nice thread. The arguing is getting out of hand. Everyone has their own opinion and calling people jaded and liars bc they prefer a certain iPad is crossing the line.

Protecting stupid people from other stupid people on an internet forum is a losing proposition.

I do agree that the display is pretty bad for an Apple product. If we compare it to Apples current standard of quality it's downright unacceptable.

Apple has the capabilities to do better & that's what makes this bad screen so noticeable.

They seem to have forgotten to provide a benefit for the high price they charge.

Agreed again. I don't want to add anything else bc I don't feel like getting in another tech battle w everyone.
