On walkabout in life and technology

First Impressions of the New iPad

In short, between the iPad 2 and the new iPad (retina):

  • Weight: Same
  • Thickness: Same
  • Screen: Yowser! The old screen looks pixellated and blurry, the new screen is brilliant. Also a lot warmer.
  • Performance: Same

Between the original and the new iPad (retina):

  • Weight: Oh, so much lighter
  • Thickness: Oh, so much thinner
  • Screen: As above, but the original was warmer than the iPad 2.
  • Performance: Blazingly faster, yet the original is still no slouch.
