    I've read nothing about the current generation being any more fingerprint-resistant than the original.
    I have noticed exactly the same number of fingerprints on my iPad; I use my iPad all the time and it gets a layer of fingerprint grease across the entire screen pretty quick. I don't like to use screen protection because I feel that it reduces sensitivity.

    I'm very happy with it. It's a huge improvement over my 1st gen iPad. I went with the white 32gb AT&T model. <3 it!

    I never had an iPad. I almost bought an iPad 2. I am glad I waited for the new iPad. The display is amazing. I have a 4S, so seeing the retina display on a 9.7 inch screen is amazing. I did not mirror my iPhone, but set up the iPad the way I wanted. Great battery life, takes a little longer to charge, but lookin at the battery size, that is normal. I am really glad I waited.

    I wasn't so happy when all of my music kept disappearing from my iPad. Hopefully, that's all done.

    I'm starting to love the screen although I was absolutely not blown away when I first saw it. I'm not sure how true the colors are but that blue is beautiful.

    Seeing 8 x10 photos on it immediately is awesome. A decent camera helps that.

    I wish there was an easier way to transfer pix from the iPhone to the iPad.

    How do you transfer pics now?

    I either don't or I email them to myself, most of the time.

    Recently, a friend mentioned that I could use the camera kit/usb adapter and the Apple cable to connect the iPad and iPhone. The iPad would see the pictures from the iPhone just like a flash drive, camera, or sd card.

    I tried it and it worked. I'd prefer to be able to beam them back and forth via Bluetooth, as I'm not always in a wifi location, and it seems really silly that I could do that YEARS ago on my Treo's, but can't transfer files that way in 2012.

    I feel somewhat similarly. I was pretty happy with my "Classic" and so I wasn't terribly compelled by the new model, but there were definitely some issues that could be improved.

    Having so much more RAM (4x as much, I believe) helps for sure. I'd hoped that it would mean that I could have more apps stay open longer, but that hardly seems to be the case. I still have to close apps and restart to restore full functionality, at times (of course, that was on the model that was "losing" my music).

    That RAM *does* come in handy when I've got a one or more webpages open in Safari and don't want them to have to refresh or reload whenever I switch tabs or apps. That'd get old. And it, sometimes, resulted in lost progress.

    I still don't consider it fully post-pc, but it's getting there.

    I have a Flickr Pro account i use to share pics among devices. It's unlimited uploads. It doubles as cloud storage too since it keeps original files. FlickrStackr app works great. There's a PC app that can download everything for local backup. My privacy settings are friends & family only on flickr.

    Upload the keepers, done. Saves on storage too.

    Videos are harder to manage. I can upload smaller ones to Flickr. Bigger ones i need to store on PC and can use air video. For sharing, i use youtube or facebook.

    I cannot say enough about how much I enjoy using this incredible piece of technology . I use my new iPad all the time . I quit using the junk laptop I have because I can do everything on my iPad that I do on my laptop . Thanks to apple for putting out a great product . I used to be a android fan but I picked up a iPhone 4s and ipad2 and can't say enough about them . I was lucky at the time to get the new iPad cause it was the last one target had a 64 gb white wifi just what I wanted. I got a square trade extended warranty and I'm set for a good long time !!

    I totally love my new iPad.. I started with the original and loved that one, even expecting not, as I figured it was just a large Touch! I am so very wrong. I live on the iPad and use it for business instead of a laptop when visiting clients. I still admit my favorite part is that when I open the smart cover it ON really, it is just on.. amazing huh! Unlike the laptop that takes time to boot or sometimes never comes out of sleep or hibernate.

    So easy to use, great apps, amazing screen, very fast, and now with the new camera, great for scans, and more. I don't regret the choice for a second.

    Display is freaking awesome!
    Plus 4G turned out to be very useful. We dont have 4G/LTE in Turkey, however, i was able to get speeds between 15-25 mbps!! That is insane, it is faster than most LTE areas.

    Yes and no... if I knew what I know now, I would have not bought it. I don't think it's worth it!

    Ditto.

    This is my first iPad and first apple product period. No problems whatsoever with mine and I have experienced none of the problems or issues that have been so widely reported.

    Love it.

    No more packing around a heavy laptop or having to set around waiting for it to boot (especially when I am with clients). I love the fact that I can just open the cover and it's on. Always connected through cellular data meaning I no longer have to search for wifi or go through passwords and authentication to gain access to the web.

    I have had my new iPad for a little over a month and everyday I learn something new or discover a new app that makes me more productive and my life easier. Just got my Bamboo Stylus in the mail yesterday which is going to help me take a big step towards going paperless.

    I cannot tell you how much time this thing is saving me by being able to handle tasks in the field that I used to have to spend hours working on at home with my PC. I am now connected in the field. I feel like I am finally stepping into the 21st century. Really gives me a lot more free time and helps to improve my quality of life.

    I remember seeing on old laptop commercial a few years back with the puppet longing to be cut loose from his strings. I feel like that puppet who has been cut loose from his strings with my new iPad.

    I think if you had the iPad 2 then the upgrade might not seem like its worth it. Especially if you use wifi only or not in a 4G area. I came from a iPad 1 and it's worth the upgrade even without the 4G. Also most don't use the camera and that might not be worth the upgrade for the improved screen. Just like going for the iPad 2 when I had the iPad 1 was not worth the jump for me.

    I'm digging mine, too. I'm also digging still having an additional one so that my lady, who waffles between wanting and not wanting one (as she scoops up mine occasionally), won't have to do without when I'm using mine.

    As for the laptop, I feel you. I got an Asus Zenbook Ultrabook. These things barely weigh anything and they fit almost anywhere. So thin. So fast. So sexy (it really is pretty as hell).

Just like going for the iPad 2 when I had the iPad 1 was not worth the jump for me.
    I own the original iPad and even then, I sweated over whether it was worth the jump. Besides the better specs on the new iPad, there's also the "cons" on the Classic model like slowing down (really noticeable lag) with 5.x, plus whatever the decreased battery life might be.

    As far as 4G, if you get the AT&T model, their HSPA+ is pretty doggone fast. We've no actual (so-called) 4G where I live but we get several MB/s, still. That destroys the iPads 1 and 2 3G speeds.

    We traveled, recently, and Orlando's LTE was nuts. Bla-zing! BLAZING.

    The speed test meter was well into the red. I'm not even sure I got an accurate reading. They need to increase the range on the app because the speed was crazy fast. Blew my regular old, SPRINT 3G speed off the map.

    The technophile in me wants to keep an original iPad but I am seriously considering replacing even that one. It's nice to have a second one, for various reasons.

    Oh, that reminds me. Someone mentioned not using the camera much.

    I didn't give a DAYUM about the camera on the iPad... but it sure does come in handy when you just need the picture to be on the iPad, right away, but don't want to go through an app like Bump or emailing. Additionally, as a tech pundit recently said, there's something very special about seeing your pictures and video at 8x10 size, AS YOU RECORD THEM. If you're skeptical, I don't blame you. I wasn't sold on the idea until I experienced it.

    I still prefer the pictures on my iPhone 4S (when I had a Pre, it was even more of a hassle to get the pix to the iPad) but the camera on the new iPad is leagues ahead of the one on the iPad 2. Even the tech geek completist in me doesn't want to own that model. No offense to those who do but I found those camera specs offensive - almost as offensive as the fact that Apple had a space in the ORIGINAL iPad for a camera, but left it out.

    I am beyond happy. The display is mesmerizing, to the point people walking past my desk stop to stare. It's made reading a joy. It's almost hard to look at my iPhones display after spending a few hours on my iPad. Love it.
