I purchased the new iPad for 2 main reasons: 1) Retina display. 2) Processing speed. I hate/detest that my iPad 1 keyboard lags. I know that I'm a little OCD but I can't handle that! I do most of my pictures and etc. with my 4s so I don't really care about the camera and etc. I'm hoping I see a world of difference btwn my 1 and 3.
