    And it's perfect. No dust, no screen discoloration, no dead pixels, and most importantly, seeing as this is a common issue - no backlight bleeding (yes, in a pitch black room with the brightness all the way up on a black screen).

    Needless to say, I'm extremely satisfied right now with Apple.

    Good luck out there.

    That's silly. I have a Mini and appreciate the size. But I would never bash the iPads for their size. It's just not ideal for constant travel but is great at home or when you want to get more work done.

    Ignore horizontal line, that's my dslr. And it's not underexposed either, that's how it looks, if not better.

    I'm not teasing but isn't that a dead pixel on the left side of the screen?

    You guys are worse than me. Kidding..

    It is indeed a dead/stuck pixel.




    ...on my camera ;)

    I just inspected the iPad and no dead pixels!!

    The iPad is portable, just not as portable as the iPad mini. I don't have any issues bringing my iPad or 11" Air with me anywhere I go. Though having both in my murse I definitely feel the weight. Down the road I will pick up a Mini and replace my iPad for my on-the-road device and leave the iPad at home. The Air will still tag along.

    Enjoy your new toy :)

    Congratulations on your new iPad. I'm sitting here with my new iPad 4 16 gig model and I couldn't be happier. Not only am I congratulating you, I'm using your thread as an excuse to be amazed with the new logitech keyboard I'm using with it as well. I highly recommend it. :D

    I keep hearing complaints about the weight of the full sized iPad. I honestly can't imagine that being a factor unless you're using it standing up all day.

    It may not be the lightest but it's a hell of a lot lighter than my 15" MBP. :rolleyes:

    I haven't tested the cameras yet, however I did notice the front camera is extremely sharp..

    You already got light bleeding (a lot) that clearly showed on the pic. Increase brightness to 100% you will see. Good top of the line iPad anyway.

    When is light bleed an issue (watching dark movies in a dark room or what)? Why is light bleed so bad?

    I don't understand why people say there is an issue with the 4 when comparing it to the 2 (it's about one tenth of a pound difference)...I do understand the weight difference between the mini and 4.

    You obviously dont do much reading with it. I want to hold my ipad when I use it not set it on a table ... within a few minutes its just too heavy.

    This is nothing new...its just become more highlighted with the onset of the mini. Despite what anyone says, IMHO the IP3 & 4 are too heavy.

    I am sure Apple will get them down to the weight of a magazine, but until then they are fun but not a useful as they could be.

    please reread first post. I am no stranger to light bleeding. I went through 5 iPad 3s before "settling" for the best one I found. This one has zero light bleed. the picture was taken in a pitch black room with 100% brightness.

    would you like to facetime with me so I can show you live? :rolleyes:

    blacklight bleeding is a huge problem when watching movies with the horizontal letter boxes.

    the first ipad 3 i bought had this issue in addition to pink tint. imagine backlight bleeding and pink tits while trying to focus and watch a movie. the apple store didn't even question my return - they said "wow" and immediately brought me a new one lol

    I know, it's a huge issue. I was ready to go back to the Apple store as soon as I got my 4 from Fedex. But to my surprise it's actually pretty ***** amazing.

    Here's another picture taken with an iPhone. It does not get any brighter than this.

    To me, this is what I consider a perfect display - after experiencing such crappy ones in the past including dead pixels & discoloration.

    Carry on now.. :)
