So here's a controversial thread. I hated the original iPad. I found it too heavy, underpowered, lacked ram and the apps were just not there. Roll forward a year and the iPad 2 is much slimmer, not just a much faster CPU but two of them, the GPU was not just faster, it was up to 9 times faster, finally a decent amount of ram and plenty of apps. It was near perfect, all it lacked was the mythical Retina display. iPad 3 is now just weeks away. Im 99% sure it has a retina display (supported by the necessary additional ram and CPU power) and that alone will make it close to perfect. I dont care whether it has an A5x or A6 chip, 8MP camera, LTE or is a little fatter. I cant see how Apple can present a compelling enough successor so it looks like I'll be skipping every 2 or so iPads in future. That is ONLY unless they break three of their golden rules - flash support, file manager and SD/USB slots, none of which Im expecting them to offer. How do you feel about future iPads in relation to iPad 3?
