    Hope you got a very good price for the iPad2 otherwise you are going to kick yourself when you get the new one. I've only played around with mine for a very short time but the differences so far are minuscule. I haven't tried out any of the new apps that have been optimised so maybe I will change my view in the future. For now I say keep the 2 until you have had time to check out the new one for yourself.

    Sold it R3k for it on Gumtree. Got it at launch just under a year ago. Got great mileage out of it so I'm reasonably happy with the selling price.

    Retina display, 5mp iSight camera, 1gb ram, quad core GPU and 4G-LTE seems a worthwhile upgrade to me.

    I'm not saying its not great but I wouldn't insist that it's a requirement for anyone with a ipad2 to upgrade.

    Fair emuff!!

    Personally I think retina display is significant enough of an improvement over 1024 x 768 to justify the upgrade. The hardware enhancements are as significant as they were between the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 which many deemed (and rightly so) to be significant.

    To each their own, PM me when you get your new iPad and let me know what you think.

    Interesting ...

    So you had an iPad 2 - you have an iPad 3 - and the display doesn't simply blow you away?
    Images just want to pop out at you? Almost holographic with the sheer brilliance?
    Could you ever - dare I say it - look an iPad screen again without seeing massive pixels?

    If you put them side by side the new one is defininetly better but I wouldn't buy a 3 if I already had a 2.
