    Apple has a 14-day return policy by the way.
    Surprise gift. She had it engraved too. To be honest though, I'm not entirely fussed about the differences between the iPad 2 and New iPad . I just feel bad for her due to the time out in working and saving for it only to see the price slashed by 20%!

    Also, I think she got it mid Feb so most likely out of the 14-day return time.

    Very good release, everything you could of wished for.

    The most interesting thing is the ipad 2 drop in price.

    For 250 quid each these things are going to start showing up all over schools now.

    Apple are still selling the iPad 2. This is essentially your cheaper lower spec iPad.

    I don't think Apple see the Android and Windows 8 as a credible threat (at least not yet) or don't want to compete in the low-end tablet market (where tablets are either sold at a loss - as is the case with the Kindle Fire - or you only make profits in the single-digit range).

    So how IS the Retina Display on the new iPad?
    Amazing. Seriously amazing. I really love the Retina Display on the iPhone 4/4S, but this feels like a step forward even from that. Not because it's a better display (which it may well be), but because the much larger scale of the screen makes it feel transformative to the experience of looking at a Retina Display and using an iPad.

    The resolution is what brings it home though. Let me put it this way: when I pulled up a nice, high resolution photograph on the iPad 3rd-gen, I genuinely could not tell the difference between what I was seeing onscreen, and a nice, beautifully shot, well-printed, glossy photograph. It was seriously to that level.

    It's the best display I've ever seen. Anywhere, period. And it makes a meaningful difference to the experience -- it's not just a spec. (Source)

    Just as important then, is the release yesterday of the Apple Configurator, looking at it now, its looking pretty good, just wondered if this replaces profile manager?

    The point is, they could easily integrate all this in the iPad as standard. I wouldn't want a bag to carry the iPad and another bag to carry all the peripherals. Netbooks can do it all...

    Must say that the new iPhoto app is seriously good as well. Only had a quick play but it's does wonders on some of my photos! And the fact you can snap pictures on your iPhone and then transfer them straight to the iPad for editing is cool. Even more so for those who like to take holidays and see/share their photos ASAP.

    Wow!

    In all the commotion I didn't notice the release of Apple configurator

    Apple Configurator app gives schools and businesses tools to manage iPad deployments | The Verge

    Amid all the hubbub about the new iPad, Apple has released a new OS X app that's made for IT administrators to easily manage and deploy iOS devices. It's called Apple Configurator, and with it up to 30 iPads, iPhones, and iPod touch devices at once can be updated, configured, and more.

    I though the official UK price ipad2 was £329? Surely it would be crazy not to spend an extra £70 quid and get the new model?

    Yup, the cheapest iPad 2 is £329 inc VAT, £274 ex VAT.

    £70 might not seem a lot, but multiply it by a trolley full? You've suddenly got an extra £2100 to spend.

    Well I still think it's too big but the improved screen is seriously tempting me. The shocking display on the ipad1/2 was the main thing which kept me from buying it (at £400, xga resolution is just terrible).

    Not really, I have an ipad 2 and it works fine for educational use such as taking registers for Sims or using it as a visualiser or to play movies on the projectors.

    At that price point you could buy 4 for a grand. It will be very interesting to see how they are bought in schools.

    Of course the network manager will need an Ipad 3 to test out just in case

    @zag just a bit off topic, how do you use ipad to take registers on sims? we are thinking of going to lesson monitor on sims rather than pars, if we can take registers on ipads then we might start deploying them to teachers too.

    Citrix i'd expect. I don't know of an app for it but its something I would expect Capita are looking into such a market for tablets or at least a GUI designed around touch interfaces for Windows 8
