60 days later, still love your "New iPad"?
I received my iPad on launch day. Upgraded from a wifi only on last model to LTE. I live on my iPad for social media, gaming, browsing iMore forums, banking, and ect. I have not gone one single day without using my new iPad. Now that I have LTE, my iPad goes many places with me now to where previously it just stayed at home.
I love it as much as the day I got it. The retina display is AMAZING. What to you guys think after 60 days?

I also went from the previous WiFi only version to the LTE version and I notice that I use it a lot more than
my previous one. I'm content with it. I see myself keeping it even over the 4th generation. Unless Apple is
going to do something really spectacular with the 4th gen.

Got mine ordered early and delivered on the 1st day. My favorite part was seeing all those who got a dozen one way or another and tried to sell on eBay and CL w/o a bite as all the stores had plenty of stock.
I just came back from a few weeks in Hawaii and I lived on the iPad. The WIFI where I was did not work well at all, so I am so happy I got the LTE version. I had my Kindle with me too, but poor kindle never came out of the briefcase.
I will say on the beach even with polarized glasses, it is still hard to use the iPad.

I have a White 32gb with a dark gray smart cover and a Bamboo stylus.
I use my iPad daily for Internet, email, Dropbox, Things etc. Although the iPad is very versatile, I personally can not put away my MBP. I still feel the need to whip out my MBP and leave the iPad in my bag. I carry both with me.
However, as far as being satisfied? The screen is great. Watching videos on it is amazing.

My first iPad, which I got a couple of months after switching from Blackberry to iPhone. I got the 4G 64Gb white and can't imagine not having it anymore. I haven't used the 4G, waiting until we get a chance to travel, but on wifi it is perfect. Only problem is when looking at customized backs I have to use the laptop cause there's still no flash for iDevices (which is fine for me)

I do. I definitely could not go back to an iPad 2. Your eyes just kind of get used to the major resolution increase and so it becomes "normal". When you go back it just feels wrong.
I dropped mine though (in a zipper sleeve), unfortunately it landed zipper side down on the tile so it left a gash in the corner. Luckily my screen is still perfect, but still annoying to have the messed up corner.

I have the 16 gig 4G LTE model. I switched from the 64 gig wifi only model. And I love this thing. I clearly have less movies, apps, and music, but in exchange for more portability with now having 4G I always have this device with me. It also takes the strain off my cell phone data consumption.
