    I didn't see any interesting features or applications for musician. Retina is vain battery, money and processing power waster. I would be looking for 2nd hand iPad 2, but I'm sure their prices are too close to iPad 3 to buy even them now. So disappoint!!! I was so looking forward to this!

      I won't sell my ipad2 for the new one, but if I didn't have one now, I'd buy the 3 for sure.

        I'll probably be grabbing an ipad 3 in the next few months.

          Apple is only dropping the price on the 2 for $50. That alone would make me buy the iPad3. I own the 2 and I don't plan on upgrading. The 2 is fantastic as it is.
          so over this signature BS!!!

              I'll get an iPad3. Been holding out for these features. iPad has proven a very useful musical tool, especially when traveling. With increased screen res, CPU power, etc. it looks pretty good to me.

                iPAD 2 :

                Height: 9.50 inches (241.2 m)
                Width: 7.31 inches (185.7 mm)
                Depth: 0.34 inch (8.8 mm)
                Weight: 1.33 pounds (601 g)


                iPAD 3 is a wee bit bigger:

                Height: 241.2 mm (9.50 inches)
                Width: 185.7 mm (7.31 inches)
                Depth: 9.4 mm (0.37 inches)
                Weight: 652 g (1.44 pounds)

                I assume it will not fit all those Music docs now...

                  It's thicker, so those of us who have the Alesis iO dock pro need to consider whether it will fit or not. I know the latest dock came with a cradle so the iPad 2 would fit. I wonder whether the iPad 3 is the same thickness as the original iPad. If so, then the cradle isn't necessary. However, will the new iPad 3 (or iPad HD as some are calling it) be compatible software wise?
                  Cheers,
                  Jim (aka EJ2)

                    1st generation... Much bigger by the looks...
                    9.56 in (243 mm) (h)
                    7.47 in (190 mm) (w)
                    0.50 in (13 mm) (d)

                    Assuming the IOS works on the new one with iPAD 2 apps, then some docs may not be affected by 0.6mm... Time will tell for fit and IOS how compatible it remains...

                      i'd buy a used iPad 2 while the market floods with them. i'm waiting for the retinal display to hit the MacBooks, that will be awesome.

                        I should mention that I don't currently have an ipad and have been waiting for the 3 to come out. If I had a 2 I wouldn't be interested in it. Currently still use an iphone4 and have no desire to upgrade until the 5 comes out.

                          I'm looking forward to those displays as well. The screen on my 17" macbook pro isn't as impressive as it used to be, but at least its matte.
