I received the iPad with retina display as a birthday present and after setting up and playing around with the basics, I was already addicted! The iPad has almost completely replaced my pc, which I now only use when I need flash player! It also looks great - so sleek and shiny and sexy! The iPad is slim and light, making it very portable and easy to fit into your handbag or briefcase.
Perfect for surfing, the wifi is quick, the google search bar is handy and bookmarking is a doddle. The touch screen has just the right amount of sensitivity and the on screen keyboard is just the right size (my partner is usually complaining that touch screen keyboards are too small but this poses no problem for his big hands!). Of course, for those who do have trouble typing, the iPad has a clever little feature which converts speech into text - this can be used for anything from updating your Facebook status to word processing.
The 5MP iSight camera (on the back) is better than any I have previously encountered, and the 1080p HD video is perfect for watching movies. FaceTime is simple, with the front camera capable of 720p HD video and excellent microphone so your loved ones can see and hear you clearly as you chat to them from afar!
Battery life is good, and doesn't take forever to charge. I love that the lightning connector can be inserted any way up, but I do wish it had the same 30 pin connector as my iPod touch so I could use the one charger for both.
With the extensive range of apps available from the Apple Store, the iPads possibilities are endless!
Summary: Definitely worth the price paid!
