Sorry if there have been a load of threads the same. I'll try and keep this fairly quick, though I do have a tendency to go on a bit - so apologies beforehand I was a late comer to the original iPad, it was just a birthday gift about 6 months after release. The 32gb Wifi + 3G model. I liked it, thought it was great for viewing photos on. But I was underwhelmed with the availability of good apps, I thought it was pretty ugly, and there wasn't any huge feature that I couldn't do without, so over the initial weeks and months I used it less and less and returned to my PC (Yep, PC, would love an iMac but have never had £999 in cash all at once). Then being a techie, the iPad 2 was announced and I fell in love. I paid over the odds to get it from the US, so I had it a week earlier than the UK release. This time the 'cool' factor wore off even quicker. It looked great, I was happy about that, and it had the new A5 processor. But yet again, not a lot to show for it. It had this supposedly amazing processor yet so few apps seemed to ever take advantage of it, and those that did, were not much better than other versions. The cameras sucked too, and there were no other features. So I sold that one too. That was about 6 months ago. And now finally the 3rd gen iPad. And yet again, I really want it. But I am equally aware I could fall into the same trap again, and end up not using it after a couple of weeks. I was going to get one for launch day, but chose a PS Vita instead - great device, but being a initial supporter you pay the price of no decent software, and I don't think they've perfected the thumbsticks.. and the browser sucks, and still no good Firmware update to fix anything I find problematic. So thats another device I don't use What i'm here to ask is how is everyone finding the new iPad ? Does the retina display change everything ? I love the retina display on my iPhone, using it over my 3GS was life changing to a techie like me I am a keen photographer, so the idea of a portable 2048x1536 display with a much better colour gamut than the already good old iPad display is certainly enticing. And cameras that are actually usable.. I love to take pictures no matter how stupid I look. A camera with a 9.7" high res live viewfinder ? yes please! So that is the scenario. I really want to believe I will love the new iPad and use it regularly for as long as I have it (If i get it..) but I have my doubts. If anyone on here found they didn't use the previous two versions, but love this version, I would love to hear your opinion. If not, i'd like some thoughts on the situation from everyone Looks like I typed too much again! Thanks in advanced.
