It's excellent. The screen is wonderful with no defects. It doesn't run hot; I'd barely call it warm. The battery life so far seems spot on. It works just as it has been hyped up to be. I decided since other family members use iPads that I might as well give it a shot. I'm pretty happy with it. I got a 32GB iPad 3, just the Wi-Fi version. I got a screen protector which I applied and found to make the screen look ugly (Zagg), so I removed it and threw it out; a waste of $30-ish dollars. I also got a keyboard/case combo which is quite nice, and I got the polyurethane cover (light whitish grey coloured cover). Finally, I got a cheap basic stylus for general purposes. Glad to have an iPad. Also glad to be rid of my Macbook Air -- iPad in, Air out (didn't need both).
