Reviewed by DillonLarson (Currently owns)

The new iPad's most obvious new feature is the Retina display, but the screen's true beauty lies in the fact that it becomes less and less obvious as one owns and uses the product (which, I think, is its intended effect). Comparisons to a glowing piece of paper are completely justified. Seriously, you will never look at a display the same way again. It looks beautiful and is fast and speedy, but the biggest attraction of iPad is enjoying apps on that gorgeous screen. iCloud has brought Apple's optimistic dream of cloud services (starting with iTunes and the App Store) to reality, and I am sure it will only get better. iPad is the perfect combination of hardware, software, and services. Wait no longer. The future has arrived. And its name is iPad.

Good Stuff
- Gorgeous thin and light design
- The Retina display is absolutely stunning
- Back camera is perfectly acceptable
- Front camera works well for FaceTime
- Clear and loud speakers
- Extremely speedy and fluid
- iOS is mature and covers all the bases of modern OSes
- Surprisingly great battery life
- iTunes and the App Store are incredible content sources
- iCloud brings it all together
- The Smart Cover is really clever

Bad Stuff
- Front camera could be much better
- iOS on iPad lacks a bit of polish
- The iPad dock is sleek and convenient, but it is only portrait-compatible and does not work well with cases and the Smart Cover
