    16gb Retina Wifi iPad gift for wife

    This iPad was gift to wife (63 yrs young, no experience with computer of any type). Since this is her first experience as computer user/owner, I will provide the product review. My expectation for the iPad was for my technically challenged spouse to play with it a couple hours, get frustrated then I would have a new toy. Unfortunately (for me), wifey has stolen my gift to her! She has found the iPad to be easy and fun to learn to use (e.g., is light and cool compared to my laptop). Operation of the touch screen and on-screen keyboard is intuitive and responsive (she hates my laptop keyboard and mouse). I observed her making some errors when trying to touch small controls (text input boxes and "buttons"). She has difficulty operating the volume control. Suggest checking this out at the store before purchase. I was concerned about the lack of a USB port. There is one "port" for charging. Given a cable, you can connect an SD memory card to this "port." Might be able to do other things. If attachments are important be sure to check this out. I also got her a stylus and Bluetooth keyboard... she has never used either ($120 wasted). Suggest holding off on such accessories until determine if really needed. As a lifelong Microsoft user I was concerned about the Apple iOS. The iOS is completely invisible. The user interface is intuitive and user friendly. Before purchasing, suggest browsing the iTunes store to see what you can do with the iPad and what that doing is gonna cost ya. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of utility software and educational apps.... dirt cheap. Concerning the iPad models: In my wife's case, the relatively low mass storage (16gb) will not be a concern, if she needs additional storage (photos etc.) we will use online storage (iCloud or other). In other words, keep the cloud in mind when evaluating your storage needs. I cannot tell the difference between the Retina display and the base display... paying extra for the Retina might have been a waste. I can't provide feedback on any differences in processing capability between the models. Concerning the buying experience at Best Buy, I did not find significant difference in price elsewhere. The iPad comes with ZERO hard copy or installed documentation. There are manuals available on the Apple website. I purchased a Geek Squad support option when I purchased a laptop 4 months ago. The Geek Squad support extended to the iPad. One attribute of this service is online how-to videos, I used the videos, quite helpful. I have also used the included telephone support, it was helpful. In summary, in our case the iPad is a good fit. The hardware cost more than some other tablets, but the software costs will certainly be lower.... also, it works great and the wife is happy. Only major negative comment is my wife won't let me play with it.

    LOVING THE NEW IPAD 4!!

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I've tested this device extensively in the local Apple store, and there's no doubt in my mind that it's the best version of iPad to date. For this it deserves 5 stars. As an owner of the "New iPad, aka iPad 3rd generation," however, I feel that Apple did an injustice to those who purchased it. The previous version was released to much fan fair in March 2012. This version was released a mere 7 months later, in October 2012. When I called Apple to find out why they would release a newer version so soon after the previous one, the representative who I spoke with informed me that there were problems with the 3rd generation, and as a result, Apple removed it from the market and introduced the generation 4. I have no problem with the fact that technology constantly changes, and that computers are outdated in short order. What I have a problem with, is the fact that Apple prematurely introduced the 3rd generation of the iPad knowing full well that it wasn't ready to be sold. While Tim Cook was onstage last March promoting the 3rd generation of the iPad as the most revolutionary product ever offered by Apple, he knew that it was just a stop-gap measure until the components were ready for the model that you see here. I love Apple products and have always thought that the company treated their customers in the highest regard. As a result of the above, I now feel differently about the company, not the products. As of this writing, Apple sells the iPad 2 and the iPad with Retina Display, aka the 4th generation. They do not sell the 3rd generation at all, as the one listed here is what the 3rd generation was supposed to be. I feel that this is very deceptive on the part of Apple and believe that owners of the now obsolete 3rd generation model should be given the option, for a fee to upgrade to the model presented here. I spoke with customer relations at Apple regarding the above and was told that this would not be an option. They readily agreed that there were "issues," with the 3rd generation model, but refused to tell me what they are. In this regard, they are certainly not being very transparent to their loyal customers. So, the bottom line is that the iPad with Retina Display is a marvelous device, however owners of the previous generation got screwed. I'm giving the model presented here 5 stars, because that's what it deserves. On the other hand, if I had the option to grant stars to the way Apple treated owners of the previous version, I would give them just 1 star

    WiFi Connectivity Problems

    I broke my ipad 2 and decided to replace it with the ipad with retina display because of the better picture and faster performance. I use the ipad primarily to browse the internet and watch live TV and Netflix. I had been very pleased with the ipad 2 and never had any issues with it; however, the ipad with retina display has been nothing but a headache. For the past week I have been struggling to keep a WiFi connection. The ipad would show connected to my wireless network with good signal strength but when I tried to open the browser and load a webpage it would "time-out" before loading. I tried all I could but nothing I was doing (resetting network, turning ipad WiFi on and off ) would correct the issue. I eventually I contacted an Apple rep. because the issue would not go away and my other devices (Roku, phone) were not having any issues connecting to WiFi. After an hour on the phone with the Apple rep. and no improvement he asked me to put the ipad down. As soon as I did, it was loading webpages like a champ. The tech stated that holding the ipad "may" affect the WiFi signal. WHAT!? Something that was designed to be held "may" perform worse if held? The rep. recommended purchasing a case to help with the issue but I am not going to find out if it will make a difference or not. I don't think i should have to deal with any WiFi connectivity issues for the $450 i have already spent. I have returned the ipad and am now looking at other products that can better meet my needs. As a side note, I am very pleased with my return experience at Best Buy. The WiFi performance issue is certainly not their fault and they did not hesitate to give me a full refund.

    Good, but not huge jump from Ipad2

    I've had my Ipad 2 for a while, and got the itch for the improved processor and screen of the new model. I figured the new CPU and extra pixels plus the improved hd camera should justify the upgrade. Well, the CPU is a little faster for some applications, but not hugely noticable. As to the screen, to be honest, for web browsing and looking at pictures or text, I can't see the difference, even when put side by side with my wifes Ipad 2 (still own a 2, and probably will keep it now). When browsing, Safari must do some intelligent resizing, because it still shows everything at the same size as the Ipad 2. This is actually a good thing, I half expected to have to zoom more with the higher res screen, which could have been a pain. The only time I see a difference in the graphics is when pulling up a youtube vid and selecting the 1080P HD. Then it takes on a very crisp higher resolution look. This is the only place I've found it looks better than the Ipad 2. This is not a knock on apple. I guess you can take this 2 ways, either the Ipad 2 was really ahead of its time and hard to improve on, or the new model is just a bit over hyped for your average user who is just going to use it to check email and casually surf the web from their livingroom couch or on the road while leaving the heavy lifting to their desktop unit. If your a first time buyer, might as well get the newest model, if you already own an Ipad 2, (which they still sell if that tells you anything) then I guess as an entertainment unit, people who watch a lot of video or play a lot of high res games might enjoy the upgrade to the 4.

    Excellent tool for college students.

    I purchased the Ipad with Retina Display this summer. I expected to use it predominately for games, media streaming, and e-books. However, the usefulness of the product has far surpassed my expectations. While the previously mentioned activities do take up a significant portion usage, the Ipad has proven to be a valuable tool as well as an entertainment device. The array of various productivity-centered applications on Apple's App Store that are specifically designed with Ipad in mind, allow users to take notes with efficiency, do similar, internet-based tasks that would normally require a computer, and many ways, even render a tool such as a laptop unnecessary. Another significant feature of the Ipad with Retina Display is the quality of the display itself. This particular model, at the time of its release, featured Apple's most advanced screen to date. This clear picture, when combined with the size of the screen, can translate to ease of use, and better treatment of vision. Overall, the Ipad with Retina Display is a solid purchase. With the release of another model, the Ipad with Retina Display has dropped in price, making its feature list more impressive. So long as a potential buyer has a solid wi-fi connection, it would seem wise to save a significant amount of money that is involved in the WI-FI + 4G LTE model. (The Ipad itself is more expensive, and it also requires a data plan from a wireless provider.) Certainly there are reasons not to impulse buy when technology is this expensive, however, the Ipad with Retina Display is a top quality tablet that allows users to increase both entertainment and productivity.

    I am a long time Android supporter and went to Best Buy to test out different tablets and came home one weekend with two Asus tf700t's for the wife and I. Within 24 hours I had crashed mine 3 times and hers once, mine using teamviewer and basic apps and hers just running Words with Friends. Both were updated to the latest OS and returned within 2 days. I got home with two iPad (4's) and have had zero issues with either of them. The response time is never lagged, web browsing is fast (Chrome is faster on iPad than it was on the Asus... sad, Google + Google < Google + Apple. Overall I can't complain about our first Apple devices. We buy what's best not what's loyal, and Apple just has it right with tablets right now. Android may come around in a few years, but Microsoft may tear into a bit of their market share a bit. The Apple apps are 5x more polished than Android also which is another huge thing Apple has going for them. The Citrix receiver on Android is nowhere near as polished as the one on iPad.. also the UVerse app is more robust.. along with many many other apps.

    Apple does it again

    I own an iPad 2 and I thought that was amazing. Works with my Apple TV and easy to use and understand. I bought the new iPad (aka) iPad 4-(according to the salesman b/c it came with the small usb port not the Apple one and comes with Suri) as a gift. Easy to set up. What I liked about the cellular At&T is that you can choose your usage (250mb for $14.99 a month. You can get more data but it cost more $). The person that will use this doesn't have wi-fi or the internet so this was perfect. We tested this out and it put my 3G iPhone 4 to shame. The 4G LTE on the iPad had no problems uploading pics and text on Facebook or whatever we did. On a side note about the cellular set-up, do it yourself! Unless you plan on downloading videos then you may want to get a share data plan with your phone company. If you are a casual user, no internet/wi-fi in your house and don't plan on downloading movies or videos then just do the monthly plan. I tried to use a pre-paid credit card and it won't expect those if you plan on buying this as a gift. If you want to cancel your plan you have to call. One last thing, on a monthly plan you're not under a 2 year contract.

    I am new to the tablet world, however, i loved the concept of having a more mobile computer that fits in your hand. After conducting extensive research, reading and watching reviews and review videos, and followed by product comparisons, i knew the iPad with the retina display was the best product. The first thing i noticed with this tablet is just how darn fast it is! All apps run very smoothly and efficiently, and i hardly notice any buffering or lag with my slow, rural internet. The next and best feature is the retina display. Reading on the i-books app is even more enjoyable with such rich and clear texts that the retina display provides. Viewing and editing pictures is a breeze with the retina display. You can now see every detail. The next best feature is the use of apps. All apps that you enjoy on your iPhone are 100x better on an iPad. The canvas is larger and the software is faster. The final feature of this beast is the battery life. It practically never drains! To sum it up, if you are interested in a tableters life, join millions of extremely satisfied people and take the iPad route.

    Very fast CPU! Screen resolution is perfect. Tons of apps to download. While I like the design of the new lightning port better than the old port design, I feel that Apple should have included an adaptor with the iPad. A lot of people think that. The new port causing all old port-based accessories to be obsolete, without an adaptor, is not very thrilling. With as much money as I paid for this product, I would think that including the adaptor would be the least that Apple could do since I am forced to have to purchase a $30 adaptor to allow my older accessories to function with my new iPad. But that is just my humble opinion. And Apple pricing the adaptor at $30 is a little ridiculous, I see $10-15 being more reasonable. Other than that complaint, I really like my new iPad 4! It is a great product! Another suggestion would be to have stereo speakers with a little better sound quality and volume built in to the product. One last suggestion would be to have more color options available for the iPad, like the iPod nano. I know dark silver would look really sharp. Having more color options could possibly increase iPad sales, just my guess. That also goes for the iPhone.

    I have a Android tablet (Motorla Xoom) that I bought when they first came out. I did a LOT of research on tablets, and specifically chose the Xoom over the iPad 2. Kudos to Apple on their marketing since people always say, "...oh..." when I tell them it is a Xoom, almost as if they are apologizing that I didn't have an iPad. But to be honest, I didn't and still don't want an iPad. I have a Mac laptop that I wouldn't trade, so I am NOT an Apple hater. I just like Android. When my wife finally decided she would like a tablet I started researching the latest Android devices, but she told she already had her mind made up - she was getting a retina display iPad. I have to admit it is a pretty nice and the screen is killer. But the Adobe limitation still bugs me up, and I just happen to love Android operating software. The iPad is probably slightly easier for the less tech savvy and since it is so prolific it is easy to find someone to offer advice or help, both of which are more important to my wife than they are to me. Nice device, and great for her. I gave it a 3 on "Value for the price" because let's face it, tablets are just not really all that useful. Sure you can come up with 1000 helpful, useful, cool things to with it, but my phone does all the same things and my laptop is better than a tablet at the things my phone cannot do.

    After three years of iPhone 3GS use, I decided to go Mac when my PC broke down last year. I've been holding out on getting an iPad and have been drooling over them each time a new one comes out. Best buy had a great BlackFriday deal so I took the plunge and don't regret any bit of it. the best is when all my pictures & calendars, are immediately sent over to my Mac and Phone and vice versa. The retina display is amazing. I was hesitant on only 16 gigs, because I didn't want to go too overboard on myself when it was time to shop for others, but am pleased to find out that all my music and movies that are on my Mac with iTunes are accessible in my home without having to download them onto the iPad. For years I've shied away from Apple thinking they were too overpriced, but after using them for a while I've come to realize the quality they put in their products makes them worth it. I've been saying I couldn't live without my iPhone, now I don't know how I ever got by without my iPad.

    I use an iPad (mini) for business and personal use, so I bought this one for my wife. She is NOT a geek, nerd, or in any way a technical person. She has tried to use a PC in the past, with little success. In fact, she has trouble operating anything more complicated than a TV remote (and even has difficulty with that, where the DVR is concerned). I noticed, however, that the one piece of technology she seemed most comfortable with, was able to use with confidence, and actually enjoyed using was her iPhone. So... when her birthday came along, I decided to take one more shot at getting her into the wonderful world of computer technology. I bought her the full-sized iPad, and she loves it. What's not to love? The Retina display is incredibly sharp, the battery lasts longer than she's likely to need it to, and most of all, it's a very intuitive device to use (just like her iPhone) -- just touch, slide, tap, flip... the screen is responsive and fast moving. Her collection of photos looks soooooo much better than it does on her phone, music sounds great, TV shows and movies look amazing, and (most important of all) she can access all of those features without any help from me. She's finally surfing the net, checking the latest news and even doing a little online shopping, and I even heard her talking to Siri the other day (for those who don't know her, Siri is Apple's personal digital assistant, who talks to you and answers spoken questions -- an amazing AI simulation). Bottom line: If you know someone who is technologically challenged who would really like to get into the web and the rest of the digital world, tell him or her to get an iPad, and do it in style.

    Okay, I have had my iPad for three months now and I thought it was the right time to publish an extensive review. I am a student. It is my first year of college. I purchased the iPad because I wanted an Apple product, cheap, battery life, and weight. I am sorry to say I am very disappointed in my purchase. Do not get me wrong, I love apple, and the iPad is a great device, just not for me. I suggest weighing your options very very clearly before deciding. I purchased the iPad to help me through school, it does that if only it had flash player. Most of my classes are now taught online and they all require flash. I was originally was going to purchase the mini to save money, and also because it would be easier to take to class. I am SO glad I didn't because I personally find the iPad 4's screen to be small. There is no where to save your files. Example- If my teacher puts powerpoints online I cannot save them. The camera does not have a flash. Okay, I admit that is not a necessity for school but it would be great to have. The iPad looses value EXTREMELY quickly. I will be trying to save up for a MacBook Pro to replace my iPad. Now on to the pros. It is very light and has EXCELLENT battery life. It's a giant iPhone, I love my iPhone so everything I do on my iPhone I can do on my iPad and spare my eyes. Bottom line, the iPad is an excellent product for someone line my parents, or a frequent traveler. If I had a laptop, I would definitely purchase the iPad, but as a product alone it is not worth it.

    I have had 2 IPod Touches, IPhones 4 and 5, and an IPad 2 prior to my purchase of the truly remarkable IPad 4th gen. I had given serious consideration to the new IPad mini, as I could have gotten 32 GB of mini for less than the price of my new 4th gen at 16 GB. The reality is, however, that the new IPad is significantly better for the money. The processor is noticeably faster than that in the mini, as well 2nd and 3rd gen machines. The Retina display is sharp and crisp, and you can see the difference even with the more compressed mini screen. Besides, Apple will probably have a new mini soon, one that is more modern. I decided to go with the best and will look at the mini when it is really more obsolescence proof. My only regret is not having gone alone with spending the extra money for the 32 GB machine, as I like to put full length concert movies on the machine. Thankfully, this is where ICloud comes to the rescue. I am clearly deeply imbedded in the Apple ecosystem and that works well for me. I can afford it. There are some really excellent Android machines (like Asus/Google) on the market. It would be tempting, but splitting between the ecosystems would not be practical, as they don't overlap enough or play well together. No buyer's remorse here.

    Best buy have the new iPad in stock on the launch day! I am one of the early adopters of iPad, love the first gen iPad when it came out but ended up selling it because the functionality and speed does not meet my need at that time, ended up trading it for a macbook air. Two years after without an iPad, I decided to give it a try again. The retina display is amazing! The internet browsing speed is decent and the apps that I have been using before have been improved and more stable. The new lightning cable is small and I like the fact that there is no wrong way of plugging it in to the port. Opted to go with the full size iPad instead of the iPad mini because the screen size is better for web browsing and the display played an important factor in my decision. The white color adds more character to it. I'll say this one is a keeper!!!

    Great for all ages. Light enough for youngsters and seniors to hold or carry without straining like with a heavier laptop. Touchscreen QWERTY keyboard is nice, but frustrating to switch between alpha and numeric screens for numerals and most punctuation; slows down writing. Spend the extra $100. on keyboard/case if you can swing it. The case lets you prop up device like a laptop, which makes Skype easy when you can't hold IPad when cooking, writing, knitting, etc. Connects easily, quickly to printer. Gaming, such as Real Racing, which depends on tilting IPad for game progression, gives players more chance for bodily interaction... thumbs get a rest! Still new at using IPad after less than one month; always something to learn. Unbelievably loud, great sound quality... listened to Le Miserables soundtrack and it was louder than I could sing! Nighttime video is grainy when viewed as an email attachment. Took video of kids in their school play, but dissatisfied with graininess; also, IPad gets a little heavy when trying to hold it steady for two minutes. Would definitely buy another one.

    For the family or just the tech savey this tablet has it all. My kids and I find easy to navigate and find games to play, books to read also video and picture taking are made simple. Many apps to find in the App Store from children to buisness aplications. If your looking for a tablet I would defiantly recommend this one, but if your looking to upgrade your iPad do your homework. If you have an iPad 2 or earlier you wanna go up to the iPad 4th generation but if you have the 3rd gen. I'd skip the mini just because its the same as the iPad 2 just MINI, wait for the next generation 5 iPad because the difference is minimal. The 3rd and 4th gen. iPad have retina display but the 3 has the a5 chip dual core where as the 4 has the a6 quad core chip, this is just one of I think 3 differences in them. Any way like I said do your homework, research and happy hunting.

    Flash might be on its way out, but meanwhile, I can't watch some videos on websites using flash. Google apps seem to be hindered / limited from implementing full capabilities - e.g., my google calendar is VERY SIMPLE compared to rich features when accessed w/ Firefox (use Google Redesigned add-on --it's awesome in FF). You have to use some 3rd party apps to access some google apps/features; I'm guessing Apple made it difficult for Google Play Music to create a native app for iPad (but there's a 3rd party app that works GREAT for accessing my Google synched cloud stored music ' Gmusic' or something like that). I HIGHLY recommend you install Google Play Music on any PC/Windows system, and have it copy/synch your iTunes to their free cloud storage (20,000 song limit!!! free). Then, this Gmusic app here allows full access to my 60+ Gigs of songs, almost as conveniently as iTunes, BUT doesn't tie up any of my iPad's limited 16 gb. of storage. FLIPBOARD is an amazing news/info app. EverNote is great on ipad. LastPass (password mgr) does NOT work very seamlessly - you have to run it separately and refer back and forth to look up passwords. Chrome browser is limited in functionality.

    This is my first tablet and I love it. I take it everwhere with me. It provides faster access to my email and with the different apps, I can just "tap" on it and I am in. So it makes availability much easier than going through my laptop. I know it can do much more and so I am still in the process of learning more of its capability. It is so easy to carry - just like a notebook. I didn't know if the smaller screen would bother me but with the exccellent resolution it truly does not matter with the size. I love using it to view video that I have recorded because you can zoom in which came in handy when I had taken video, with another camera, of sea turtles on the beach. Without zooming in the turtles looked like the rocks on the beach. But when I zoomed in you could clearly see the turtles without it blurring. My husband even loved using it for reading, which was shocking because he prefers big screen monitors for his computer. I still have to keep my laptop though. I have a business with a website and cannot make any adjustments to it with the ipad. Also, I wish i could save things, straight from the ipad to a SD card for more storage. This I have to do through my laptop. But all in all its a good little tablet.

    Upon staying in the 7 inch android tablet market, I finally decided to buy an iPad and it's just such a jump ahead! I had a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and a Nexus 7. They were just so deprived of good, tablet optimized apps. I was shocked at the standby time of this thing, I believe it can literally last 3 weeks just sitting there. And while you're using it the battery goes down so slow! It was a very pleasant surprise, as I only have to charge it once every 3 days! The cameras are very good! The back camera has autofocus and gives very nice images. The front camera is the new Facetime HD camera which also produces very nice quality images. The iPad overall preforms extremely solid with no hiccups or lag at all. Apps do crash from time to time however. The speaker is very loud and has a very good sound. I do miss the small form factor, though, of the android tablets I have, but it's not such a deal-breaker. Then again, there's always the iPad mini available at a much more affordable price point. You will love this tablet because there is an app for everyone! I am extremely pleased with my purchase and look forward to seeing how Apple will make it better. (If that's even possible? ;)

    I would recommend this to a friend
