Gotta wait for the teardown. I can probably make a bet on 1GB though. It would surprise me if they do 1.5g or 2g.

Congratulations! You get the 'most exaggerated comment of the day' award. Retina is an improvement, yes, but i was underwhelmed overall with the ipad3. My 2 still looks great... The screen is bright, i'm really not obsessed with resolution, it does what i need it to.

Totally disagree. iPad 2 looks like a fizzy piece of crap, it's true. Retina vs non retina especially on an iPad is night and day.

Here's my biggest concern, and one reason why I'm hesitant to preorder:

How did apple solve the heat issue? The iPad 3 is already a hot device (literally) but double the GPU and CPU means more heat. The iPad 4 might have legitimate cooling issues, that's what really has me worried.

If you spend any amount of time looking at text on the iPad 3 vs the iPad 2 and you can't tell the incredible difference you seriously need an eye exam.

I'll probably end up upgrading to one of these eventually. Can anyone speak on the number of apps being updated to support retina? I walked into an AT&T store a few weeks back and tried out the 3rd generation iPad and most of the apps on the model device were still in iPad 2 resolution...

Anyone think this thing will catch up fully with current gen consoles in terms of hardware?

I have a question concerning apple care plus, usually if your ipad breaks, they give you a refurbed one. If six months down the line, your new ipad breaks, will they give you an equivalent ipad 4? Cause I really doubt they will make any more new ipads, so I would figure they would have to give you an ipad 4 right, cause they would run out of refurbed ipad 3's very fast. Right? Anyone got a newer version of ipad or iphone like this?

I don't know about you, but to me those improvements are well worth the cost of a minimal amount of extra weight and virtually unnoticeable amount of extra thickness. Also, the 4th gen is still 2mm thinner and either 28g or 68 grams (depending on wi-fi or cellular) than the original iPad.

That said, you might be right about an overhaul, we'll just have to wait and see.
What is the weight and thickness difference in the ipad 4 and new ipad?

I'm pretty excited for the iPad mini though, mostly because I want to see what the smaller-sized but lower-resolution screen is going to look like.
I kind of disagree about the weight between an ipad 2 and the new ipad. I find the new ipad kind of heavy. When I play with the ipad
2, it seems quite light. I know they made the new ipad heavier because of the two light bars. I guess ipad 4 will have one lightbar right? So it will need less of a battery. Also, I wonder if because of this the new ipad, will it be brighter than the ipad 4?
