Pros Silky smooth, wonderful display, fast, secure, easy to use
Cons Like anything else from Apple, it's not what you want, it's what Apple wants for you. If you can't accept that, don't buy an iPad.
Oh, and dig deep because Apple has their hand in your pocket.
Summary Personally, I like my iPad. For me the plusses outweigh the minuses.
If you are not very computer savvy and don't like spending time fiddling and figuring out how do do stuff, then this is the right tablet for you to buy.
If you like lots of choices, like customizing your devices, and/or want the latest and greatest of everything, even if it doesn't work very well yet, then do your self a favor and buy an Android tablet.
Pros Superb color reproduction and saturation. Ultra high res screen. Huge app selection. Fast. Exceptional 3D open GL performance. iOS still the best, most polished, most stable mobile OS. Wireless setup. Open (Google/Amazon etc compatable).
Cons Heavy compared to smaller tablets. Mono speaker.
Pros Retina Display
Cellular Options (if needed)
Same thing as 3rd gen iPad
Summary Apple honestly surprised a lot of people (including me) when they "secretly" announced this iPad. I watched the whole conference/presentation when they announced the iPad Mini but didn't even hear/see this the whole presentation. It's honestly the same exact thing as the 3rd gen iPad other than the minor processor upgrade and Lightning charging port. Also, on a side note, the Lightning charging port is honestly (in my opinion) straight bs. I understand Apple wants to be their own and NOT use Micro USB but still it was a terrible idea.
Overall, it's roughly the same exact thing as the iPad 3rd gen with minor upgrades like always (other than the 1st gen iPad to the 2nd gen iPad).
