Reading the new features doesn't really jump out at you but I suppose if your upgrading from the 1st iPad then the wow factor will really take hold.

Hans, what do you think about these features for the new IPad? Personally, I think its not much of an improvement, unless of course, you had no IPad or only had an IPad 1. Apple is just...... improving a little bit after each update. It should be *BAM* IPad 1 w/the features then *POW* (2-3 years later) IPad 2 with newer and better functions. You get what im saying? What do you think?

Gorah, the display is a very noticeable improvement over the iPad 2. I personally won't be getting this though because I see no use for an iPad when I can use a laptop.
