Advantages: Responsive, display quality
Disadvantages: Screen easily scraped, No flash
I took the plunge back in June to purchase a 3rd gen iPad for my leisure life, as well as for business use. In a nutshell, I absolutely adore this product, and it really makes your life easier, doing everything I need it to.
The iPad is stunning when you look at it, the large Retina display screen is HD Quality and is a pleasure to look at. The silver metal reverse combined with the black surround is professional looking. Unfortunately the iPad is quite heavy and can require two handed operation. I also notice that if one uses the iPad for an extended period of time, perhaps over 3 hours, you will notice the reverse, towards the 30pin dock connection, becoming quite warm to the touch.
This iPad has a camera on the front for faceTime, which although is not great quality, does serve its purpose and allows communication quite clearly.
The rear camera is good quality and the shutter speed is quick. Although the problem is not the quality, it's more the practicality, I think it's fantastic Apple put a good camera on here, but I'm not sure you're going to walk around on a Saturday night, taking pics with your iPad - it's just too big!
The safari browser is good, and you can open up multiple tabs, as opposed to windows or pages in the iPhone allowing you to swap between them easily.
Facebook and Twitter have been integrated into the operating system ios6, which means you can post pictures and use siri (in ios6) to post a status, without opening up the Twitter or FB apps.
The battery is really great and easily lasts a few days of moderate use, although the charging takes a while and it is better to charge in the evening and over night.
SUMMARY AND PRICE
For under £550 you can get an excellent tablet, which in my opinion can do away with a PC or laptop (provided you do not need flash, or do a lot of word processing). I would recommend it to anyone!
Summary: A superb product at a fair price point
