Does the WiFi model feel noticeably lighter than the 3G?

    I've head reports that despite the actually difference being tiny some people are saying they can feel a difference in there hands. I just wanted to know if this is true?

    I've just sold my 64GB 3G model and I'm going to pick up a 16GB WiFi but wanted to know this first.

    Thanks.

    Well John, Jacob told me not to tell you, but since you'll kill him anyways, the 3G is a little bigger overall at leased based on Apples specs. http://www.apple.com/ipad/specs/ its only .1 lbs heavier.

    I've also heard that if you load it up with a lot of Wagner's operas it will weigh more than if you load it with New Kids on the Block.

    I don't know, but after purchasing the 64GB 3G iPad for my wife, my wallet sure feels lighter.

    Not to me. I realize that %-wise it's a lot lighter, but in real world usage, it feels really close to me. Especially with a case.

    Just blown away by the iPhone4 and can't justify needing the 3G on the iPad too.

    I owned the 16GB wifi model, sold it and bought the 3G. I couldn't feel the difference at all, and I tried to.
