OK, here goes... Its not called an iPad3, its just 'the new iPad' The battery life is about the same as the iPad2 Its a teeny bit heavier than the iPad2 but you'll struggle to notice The battery takes longer to charge, so plug it in for longer It gets a bit warm sometimes, not much though The higher resolution screen looks great, with high resolution content The higher resolution screen shows up low resolution/poor quality content It includes built in voice dictation in many apps It can act as a wifi Personal Hotspot if your carrier allows The camera takes better pictures than the iPad1/2 The camera takes beer video than the iPad1/2 It costs the same as the iPad2 did It has the same storage options as the iPad2 did Comes in black or white The smart cover fits All the rest of the guff you read about it - yellow screens, etc. is either subjective, or varies between iPads, or both. If you want one, buy one. If you ain't happy, change it. If you still ain't happy, get a refund.
