Have to admit, first time i used the iPad 3 I was like meh, nice screen, not quite mind blowing as I expected but still sweet. After week I hardly noticed the retina effect. Two weeks later playing with the iPad 2 for the first time again I definitely notice its thinner and lighter. Much lighter than I remembered it being. After a few minutes it feels as familiar as ever. I also notice it feels a lot cooler on the back. No complaints. I have to say the whites do seem a little whiter than my iPad 3 although colors are a little duller. I'm seeing a fine pixelly mesh over the screen I never noticed before. Going online i see websites text is especially difficult to read in portrait. I find myself holding the screen a little closer to make out the text more easily. I find I'm staring at words a little longer for them to register. After about 30 minutes my eyes had almost totally adjusted to the screen and It wasn't as much of a struggle to read text as at first. It's weird how every little change feels so exaggerated going from 2 to 3 and then back again. As much as I like no. 3 there's definitely a lot I miss about 2. So how did you find it going back to iPad 1 or 2 after a long time with 3?
