Should I do all these retina updates?

Its a nightmare. We are all going to run out of space, just to keep our apps up to date. !6gb is way too small for an Ipad now.

Depends on the usage. Corporate usage, whether it be used as a restaurant menu/order system, inventory control at a plant, or lord knows what other dedicated uses a business might have for it, 16G is probably way too much. No movies, no music, just business. There IS a market for the 16g iPads.

My iPad 2 was already retina sharp from 10 feet away. I don't see the point.
I upgraded from iPad 2 to 3.

My typical viewing distance is 12 inches and my eyes are far from the best.

While I didn't think iPad 2's screen was deficient in anyway, non-retina graphics on iPad 3 really stand out. And vector graphics look much thinner (e.g., lines and boxes) on apps like Mail and iCal.

As a nice side benefit, apps like Safari can load more pages in memory before reloading.
