    100$ are well worth the huge retina display that comes with ipad 3

    Fair comment! The hype was a disappointment in the end! I’m now seriously considering an iPad2 with a vireo of skipping the ‘iPad 2012′ and possibly the iPad 2013 or iPad 3′ whatever comes out next year! The iPhone 4S seems a much better tool (I skipped several models from my 1st iPhone 3G). Apple know how to build tech stuff and they also know how to hype up the customer too!

    I just bought a new Ipad 2 for $360 at Microcenter. It’s definitely worth it at that price. I couldnt see myself getting a tablet for above $400 anyways.

    The update that got me to spend the extra was the Retina display. I, of course, haven’t yet seen the device hands on – but comparing my iPhone 3GS screen to a friend’s iPhone 4 screen showed an easily perceptible improvement and I expect the same from the iPad.

    There are so many other things to consider. For example, the original iPad’s trade-in value is about $100 less than the iPad 2. I’d expect when the next iPad comes out (4th generation), there will be a similar trade-in difference between the iPad 2 and the new iPad (3rd generation). My point… the value can be rolled into future generations – unless you are throwing your old iPads in the trash.

    Over the course of the devices lifetime (reasonably about 3 years) that works ou to $33/yr for a usable camera and a great display, double the operating memory. I think it is worth it, without a doubt. I suggest users buy the retina and skip 2 generations to get a reasonable upgrade

    How many people outside a circus sideshow will notice a 51 gram difference?

    I’ve been having trouble deciding between these two. Going to primarily use it as a fancy e-reader which I can use to take notes and highlight journal articles (grad student). I notice the difference in weight and thickness. Leaning iPad 2.
