Thumbs up iPad 4 is a beast!

Wow I'm blown away by the amazing battery life of the iPad 4. It took 3 days to discharge it from 100% to 5% and have used it for 14 hours. No gaming as I am not a gamer. Just Safari and YouTube but still, amazing battery life. Have also been on WiFi, Cellular turned off. Love the Retina and the Lightning port too. A very good machine to replace my MBA.

It is

Battery life is just incredible! I use mine for a lot of web browsing, YouTube, Bloomberg (both the regular iPad app with news, and the TV+ app for live shows), reading one of the local newspapers, reading magazines and now and again for playing music while cooking or gyming.

That is exciting to hear. I guess this would make me more interested in something like the 5, because battery life is always a concern. The reviewers agree with your assessments.
