Went to the Apple store today to check out the new iPads. I was pretty skeptical after the announcement because of the old tech and non-retina screen. But after using the thing I have to say that Apple wowed me. The screen isn't great, I'll say that up front, but the thing is so light and nice to hold that it doesn't matter. I could see myself using it for hours and hours at time, whereas with the 10" iPad I would use it for short periods just because of the heft and awkward size. I still think its a little overpriced but Apple has made a believer out of me. The screen will make reading web pages not quite as nice, but I'm willing to give that up for all of the form factor benefits. Hope this helps those on the fence.
