    Got mine today. Definitely feels a bit smoother than the iPad 3. The biggest difference seems to be power draw though. It definitely seems to not hit the battery as hard as the 3 did, which I didn't expect. Almost got the mini, but I figured I could use the 4 until the retina mini comes out.

    Black. I had a white iPad in the past and it just doesn't work for me with the big screen. With the black the focus is on the screen and not the bezel around it.

    This is my first ipad, so I had trouble deciding on which color to pick the day I brought my ipad. I chose white because I wanted to test it out and I also asked the assistance at the app,e store and be said I can exchange it with a black version if I don't like the white one. I have had the white one for about a week now and I like it, but I rather prefer to have a black one. I am going to be exchanging it soon.

    Found this nice write up today about why the 4'th generation iPad is worth getting. It is what helped change my mind about the iPad Mini that I was going to get and order the iPad 4 to replace my iPad 3 instead. Page 2 - iPad 4-Gen: 10 Reasons Why Apple's Full-Size Tablet Is Worth Buying

    Here are the 10 reasons that are listed in the link:

    1. The A6X processor

    2. Welcome to Lightning

    3. iOS 6 is tops

    4. It won't be updated any time soon

    5. The big display is important

    6. For corporate users, it's what employees want

    7. The design hasn't changed

    8. The mobility factor is still there

    9. The competition is subpar

    10. Bet on the quality
    What are the benefits of having a lightening connector? I hope they don't update for a while, what makes you think they won't? I am expecting iPad 5 in April 2013 lol📱📱📱📱

    Main benefit is that it doesn't have a front or back so it is easier to put in in the dark. Doubtful that they'd change it again soon. The prior connection was used for 10 years.

    Well obviously if you have neither and they were at the same price point get the iPad 4.

    I own an iPad 2 and an iPad 3. The only reason I upgraded to the iPad 3 was for the Retina display nothing more. I will not be getting an iPad 4 and I will more than likely skip the next version also unless its groundbreaking. I mean honestly what else could they put into a tablet that would make it a must have?
    The new tablet would have to clean my house and do my laundry for me to buy a third tablet. I have 2 and 4.

    One of the benefits of the lightning connector is being able to charge your battery faster, with the 30 pin and other mini or micro USB connections the wattage is limited thus the battery charge time is limited and thus battery size is a factor with slower charging times.

    I got the iPad 4 for xmas gift. Before I was adamant in not getting a tablet since I felt it wasn't worthwhile so I decided this time that the iPad is far ahead of when it was originally released so it was more worthwhile. So far I love it!

    I'll replace my 4 with a mini when the mini has a retina display. For now the 4 is perfectly fine.

    Look up IGZO screens. Thats what all future iPads will use for their screen technology.

    The 4 is awesome. Whether or not its worth upgrading is an individual preference. Great tablet though.

    Just ran a speedtest.org on my iPad 4. At 40mbs, there's no way I'm getting rid of this thing.

    I just bought my new ipad 4 because I got tired of lugging around my laptop to sales meetings. My videos look absolutely amazing on the ipad. I look much cooler carrying the small leather case rather than my bulky laptop case. It has served it's purpose in that regard. Now I have to explore how to really utilize this tool. That's one reason I joined this forum.

    I just sold my iPad 2 so that I could get the 4. Was thinking of getting a MacBook, but I think that I'm going to stick to the iPad.

    Do you think that the iPad could replace the MacBook?

    i certain cases yes. Document editing, email, may integration apps... Only thing I have not tried was a BT keyboard for my iPad

    I also do remote server support on 3 main frames from my iPad. Works well every time.

    That's good to know. I was deciding between an iPad four and a MacBook air.

    Thanks to the A6X chip, the iPad 4 has double the chip speed and graphics performance of its predecessor and the new custom-built Apple chip also powers enhanced features in the new tablet, including picture stabilization and face detection when snapping photos or shooting videos. The iPad 4 also features "ultra-fast" Wi-Fi that doubles the connection speed of the iPad 3

    Happy with my iPad 2 but the processor of the iPad 4 is appealing - for me there are not enough changes though to rush out and upgrade.

    That is just my personal opinion.
