I really love my iPad3 which I've had for a little more than a month now. It's great for drawing and making music, writing and research projects. I appreciate its small size and portability, and being able to take it anywhere, which was a bit of a problem with my 15" Macbook pro. It's hard to imagine life without the iPad now.

I absolutely love my new iPad. Its the best device I've ever owned. Flipboard has actually gotten me reading the news more. Its really amazing the experiences you can have on it. And I know its heavier than the iPad 2, but, this being my first iPad, I am surprised at how light it is sometimes. Coming from lifting a 15 inch laptop places, I can just pick this up, expecting it to be heavier but its not. When later iterations become lighter than the iPad 2, it will be even more impressive.

Just grabbed my first ipad a few hrs ago (16gb wifi/4g white ipad 3), and I am in love already. Thought the 4s was nice! The ipad takes it all to another level. We are just one happy apple family right now. The screen is amazing and so's the ease if use, setup and app transfer! Bought a targus leather case, incipio screen protector, and griffin purple stylus. Holding out for more research on bluetooth keyboards.

Just got a white 16GB WiFi model... Awaiting a stand and swivel leather case, screen protector, and auxiliary home charger. I'll be the one who manages it, but it's not for me as much as for my girlfriend and my daughter. It's really amazing, and I will certainly use it, but I'm really more of an iPhone guy. The iPad may be laying there on the counter and I'll just grab my phone instead without even looking at it - and it's three days new! My girls are just crazy about it though, usually they're all over it...

Anyways, I just sold mine since I'd want Verizon(switching to them next month along with data share plan and new iphones) instead but i'm going to hold off and see if i even miss having one. I'm kind of toying with the idea of getting an MBA instead since I've never had a Mac and would be a better value to me.
But I'll probably get a mini ipad for my daughter this xmas.

Moved from a blackberry playbook mainly due to the lack of apps and couldn't be happier. Love the amount of apps that apples store has to offer. Got the latest iPad for many reasons including Siri with ios 6, the retina display, and the fact that it should get a few more updates.

The 3rd-gen iPad is all about the display
I love my iPad. I would like to explain why and how I am amazed by this incredible device.
First and foremost, you cannot talk about the third-generation iPad without talking about the display.
I will say one phrase: everthing looks real-life. ( most texts are auto-optimised. Photos and videos do need to be in very high quality to really appreciate the Retina disaply)
What's even more amazing is that iPad makes no compromise to adopt this kind of display. Over 5 million pixels on the Retina display are driven by a power-hungry quad-core GPU and yet the battery life is kept the same at 10 hours of web browsing( I often get more than 10hours, at half the brightness, which is bright enough all the time). This is thanks to a significantly denser battery that packs 60% more juice. What's more: the A5X chip with dual-core CPU and quad-core GPU is over 100% larger than the previous A5 chip. Apple engineers have done a remarkable job of fitting all these in a device that is merely 1mm thicker and a bit heavier than iPad 2. Simply brillant enginneering.
At this point, I would like to elaborate on the increase in weight. The third-gen iPad is heavier than iPad 2, and if u hold the two devices separately in each hand, you will feel the difference. Well, this is mostly due to the larger battery. But there are two good reasons that make this increase in weight unimportant and negligible. First, the display is so good that I bet most ppl will be wlling to put on some dozens of grams on their hands. Second, whether it is an iPad 2 or the third-gen iPad, your hands ARE going to get tired after
a certain period of time. In other words, if you are switching from iPad 2 to the third-gen iPad, the only time you are going to feel the difference is when you pick up the device. After that, no more. After a few weeks, you will get used to it. Why? Because it's just some dozens of grams more! No big deal.
Furthermore, I really like the dictation feature. It works really well. And since I am Korean, I am excited about the diction and Siri support for Korean in iOS 6.
The apps designed for the iPad are also amazing. Those apps will blow the minds of those who once called the iPad an oversized iPod touch. In essence, iPad IS an oversized iPod touch( with a tweaked aspect ratio). However, the large 9.7 inch 3:2 IPS( in-plane switching: a premium display technology that provides wide viewing angle and accurate colours) 2048 by 1536 display is what makes all the difference. The apps really take full advantage of the large canvas. Twitter for iPad is an awesome example. Plus, the Retina-optimised games look unbelievable.
WARNING: There is ZERO exaggeration in every word I say here.
So all in all, starting at $499, it is highly unlikely that you will not like the third-generation iPad.

Reading is so much better than on any other platforms or books.
Accessing the internet is so much better.
Watching movies on the iPad is much better than on laptops.
All these. Thanks to retina display. without it. I wouldn't have loved it as much.

I am fairly disappointed. The inability to play all types of video media is quite disappointing. Also the lack of flash support makes it impossible to access my online classes. Overall I would give it a 2 out of 5 because it doesn't do what I need it to. I am hoping to trade it off for an Android tablet. This is the first and last Apple product I will buy.

Re: Are you happy with your new iPad?
This is my first apple product ever…
I work as a consultant and needed some type of mobile computing device and this was perfect for my needs… as long as I have a wifi connection. Now that I have my iPhone 5, I have that too. A friend joked that I have it with me everywhere I go. He was right.
There are some things that I wish it would do better, but overall, it is a great product and exceeds my expectations. One thing I still don’t know how to do is access my iCloud Stream Photos from a PC.
