Pros: Ease of use, display quality
Cons: Too pricey for a discontinued model
You should be aware that the 3rd generation iPad is a discontinued model. Although it offers retina display, it's not the same as the iPad with retina display. Considering that it's a discontinued model (no where will you find this on the Best Buys site) it should be considerably cheaper than it is. The 4th generation iPad with retina display is faster, has a sharper screen, and contains a number of other hardware improvements and it's only a little more expensive than this model. I would think that the 3rd generation would be discounted heavily, but they continue to sell it as if it's state-of-the-art. When you're looking at the Apple site and comparing units, you'll see there are only 3 iPad models: the mini, 2nd generation and iPad with retina display (4th generation). This is a good product, but for the price you'd be better off purchasing the 4th generation iPad.
