    Did they just swapped the processor for this one. or is it actually thinner?

    It's not the port that's keeping it fat.

    iPad 2 was thinner with old 30pin.

    lightning port is a pretty small piece in this thing. they'd have to shrink the battery to really get it smaller at this point. i'm ok with that, cuz i was able to order an ipad 3 case for this thing rather than have to wait for new ones to come out.

    The next iPad will have a total redesign to update it to the same look as the iphone 5.

    So the iPad 5 will benefit from everything apple learned doing the iPhone 5 and the mini.

    It will be thinner, lighter and the boarders around the screen will shrink.

    A little bit of here and a little bit of there.
    I agree with this. I doubt the bezel will change, but I do think they will draw a lot from their iPhone 5/iPad mini techniques. The most visible changes will be the annodized "slate" for black and that diamond-cut bezel thing on the edges.
