yeah, i went to an APPLE store; the sales rep said the same. He said that he can't 'til it comes out because the resolution is so much better.
I might get me one.

Post some thoughts on the new iPad.
I don't know if I am nut enough to stand in line to buy the 64gb, or just wait a month.

I'm torn between a 32GB wifi version or a 16GB 4G version. Not sure which to go with, and thats even if Apple will send it to an APO address.

Completely forgot I had a CF lip pre-ordered for the car. So it looks like I'll be waiting on the new iPad for a little while longer. Gives me more time to think about which one to get, but it'll probably be the 32GB wifi version.

I've heard reports that the new Ipad runs 10 degrees hotter, as well as the return of the yellow tinted screens.

Yeah they won't send to APO addresses, however I still ordered one, using an APO forwarding service. Should be here in mid-April if all goes well. I went with the 32GB wifi version.

I've been following the MacRumors forum and TUAW and although some people are saying their iPads are getting hot, Apple has replied saying that the heat is within their standards. I've had my MacBook get extremely hot before, but with their aluminum construction, the heat dissipates very quickly once you take the machine out of whatever is straining it.


My biggest worry is the reported dead pixels. I'm overseas at the moment so if anything happens it needs to take place immediately after taking it out of the box because I'll have a very limited amount of time to return it. There is also a report of yellowing in the screen, but I think thats just the screen curing and that will clear up soon. The yellow tint has happened with all the previous iPads and the last couple iPhones.

No dead pixels here. Went to this site and tested it:http://www.theipadguide.com/content/...st-how/7171269
So far I'm liking my iPad. I'm still playing with it. This is my first iPad. Stay tuned

It's just the resolution and camera, nothing much.
