Apple iPad with Retina Display is made from high quality single piece aluminum and glass with powerful Apple designed chips and faster graphics. Its breakthrough display features 3.1 million pixels (1 million more pixels than an HDTV) with 264 pixels per inch. The new A6X chip inside iPad is up to twice as fast as the previous generation A5X chip, and it delivers up to twice the graphics performance, without sacrificing battery life. Even with its slim design and incredible performance, iPad has an astounding 10-hour battery life. The iSight camera on the back of iPad shoots beautiful still images with 5 megapixels and records HD videos in full 1080p. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera shoots 720p videos and can make video calls on the big, beautiful screen. With advanced dual-band built-in Wi-Fi, browsing, downloading and streaming content becomes very easy at remarkable speeds. Wi-Fi + Cellular models make ultra-fast cellular network connections – up to LTE.

The innovative features and built-in apps in iOS 6 makes iPad not only easy to use but also incredibly fun, making it the most advanced mobile operating system in the world. iCloud is seamlessly integrated in the apps, which stores all the contents like photos, pictures, music, mails, contacts, calendars, documents etc., and wirelessly pushes it on to other devices. The easy to use assistant “Siri” also uses voice commands to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls and much more. The iTunes store is the world’s largest and most trusted store with over 375,000 iPad applications. It has a new Lightning connector which is not only 80% smaller than the previous 30-pin connector, but is designed to be reversible and significantly more durable.

Some users find this iPad to be heavy in weight and they also complain about the fragile and easily breakable screen. It is expensive, and is not compatible with universal power adapters. At times the ecosystem of iTunes can be annoying as everything has to pass through iTunes and syncing many devices can become a problem.

Overall, Apple iPad with Retina Display comes with user-friendly features, super-fast processor and stunning graphics. The new version is designed with Mercury-free LCD display; Arsenic-free glass display; BFR-free, PVC-free and Recyclable aluminum to reduce any harmful environmental impacts.
