DH is considering getting The New Ipad for me for our wedding anniversary this yr. But I read that the new one is thicker and heavier than ipad 2, though screen resolution is sharper. So may prefer ipad 2 instead, and cheaper too!


You wouldn't feel the increase in the thickness (just 0.6 mm thicker) but 50g more may make a difference.

64 can hold approx twice the amount of media, Apps and everything compared to 32GB. How much 32GB can hold, just double it on 64GB.

You pay additional $130 for extra 16GB for 16GB->32GB, and $130 for extra 32GB for 32GB-> 64GB. So, the 64GB is better value for money, actually.

Also, consider that the iPad3 takes Full HD videos.

For a 16GB model, the storage would be filled within a hour or so of video taking, assuming it is same bitrate as the iPhone4S.

higher resolution screen means video & photos can also be of higher resolution, and thus of much larger size.

app size increase should be marginal.

mp3 no different in size.

I store home videos & photos in my ipad, so I went for 64GB.

Thanks so much, tankee. :please:
I'm personally more inclined to take up the 64GB from the start.
I take loads of home videos (since got so many children so more
precious moments to record :wink:) and i can almost be classified as
a camera whore! :yikes: All my phones/memory cards are FULL of pictures!

Now.... :?

The question is.... to go for iPad2 or iPad3... :?
Can i get your opinion on this? Thanks in advance. :please:

if $ is not a concern, the higher resolution (ie retina display) on the new ipad (or ipad 3) would make the photos and videos look better than on ipad 1 and ipad 2.

the higher resolution display is also said to be easier on the eye when reading text / ebooks.

here is a side by side comparison of the display, done by HWZ

just realised that the new ipad comes with a smaller connector, thus the ipad 1 connectors can not be used
