The 2,048-by-1,536-pixel Retina display is sharp, clear, and bright. At 263 pixels per inch, it beats every other tablet on the market right now except Google's Nexus 10, which offers a 300ppi, 2,560-by-1,600 10-inch screen. But both Web browsing and gaming look better on the iPad's screen because of superior software choices. In the browser, Apple picked better-looking, better-kerned fonts, and cross-platform games showed generally superior graphics and coding on the iPad. The Retina display takes its toll on battery life just as it did on the third-gen iPad. Just like the second- and third-generation iPads, this tablet has a 9.7-inch screen surrounded by a black (I bought the black# bezel, with a curved metal back. The fourth-generation iPad looks almost exactly like the previous model, iPad 3. The iOS App Store remains best in class, with the widest selection. Again, From Ipad 3 to 4 and there is no difference apart from maybe the processor. 1Gb of ram is very poor. The iPad 4 #technically just known as "iPad" at the Apple Store# has a few upgrades, two minor, one significantly major. A Lightning connector replaces the old 30-pin, just like all other new iOS devices this fall. And while the rear iSight camera remains the same #5 megapixels), the front-facing FaceTime camera has been upgraded to HD status: 720p video recording and sharper self-portraits. The important point is that this iPad is the best one. It's polished. It's improved over the third-gen model. Buy it..................
