I think we all know a retina display is great but there's so many downsides so far I'm reading like Heavier and thicker and longer charge time. I'm starting to think I'd have preferred them to hold off retina until next year until that size could come down further. Ipad 3 with Siri, 8MP camera, voice dictation, HD front facing camera may have been better to be honest. If the above happened we would have a slimmer Ipad like the second generation one. I suspect it will be mixed debate whether retina is better or other features but most say the Ipad 2 had a good screen anyway. So maybe going Retina came one year early?
