Bought this for our 84 year old mother. She loves it and can't wait to use is as a companion for her iPhone 5c! She has plans to use it as a teaching tool with the help of Keynote and Pages.

    Comments about Apple 16GB iPad with Retina Display and Wi-Fi (4th Gen, Black):

    It's very fast, the display is sharp, the display port to connect to my TV will be very useful.
    Quite often in my searches there is no "back" key and I have to hit "home" and start over. I haven't been able to get the video camera to work yet, but then I haven't looked at any instructions either.

              Comments about Apple 16GB iPad with Retina Display and Wi-Fi (4th Gen, Black):

              We were a bit apprehensive when we placed our order for the iPad with Retina Display 4th Gen. We are in our eighties and feared we would be difficult to learn everything about it. The rep put us at ease and made buying it a pleasure. First day we had it, we took it to the [*] and they gave us a one and a half hour class on the basics. We are now having fun learning more and more each day. WE LOVE IT! We love the portability it provides. No more carrying the lap top room to room. We may have to order second one, since it's "first come, first serve", now. Thanks B&H for this exciting experience!

                  While I was/am very pleased with this product, research and discussions with other owners convinced me to exchange it for the model with internet access. You don't have to sign up right away, but it's great knowing I have that option. You don't have that option/upgrade with this model. If I knew without a doubt that I would never want the internet (wiFi only), then it is a great system. Now we have to wait and see what the 5th generation has to offer.

                        This is my 3rd iPad and frankly it is the best iPad experience I could ask for. The clarity of the retina display and the responsiveness of the whole system make it the ideal personal computing device. I use it for everything and it goes everywhere with me.

                            Finally obtained an ipad! Have had several iPhones and felt I really didn't need one.
                            Boy, was I wrong! The iPad takes you to a different level and adds additional options that you can't use on just a phone. I use this (using it to write this review) more than my PC computer for almost everything. The addition of use as a reader allows me to read anywhere, anytime! I read more now than I have in several years!
                            For fun, reading, Internet, movies, tv, THIS is the way to go! I also have the ability to use this away from home tethering it to my iPhone plan without any additional data fees!

                                      I got the iPad3 (WiFi) for my wife who wanted something more portable than her laptop PC. She uses it mostly for email, FB, word processing, and ebook reading. At first she was nervous about learning a new platform, but quickly was surprised at how easy it was to get used to the Apple environment. I bought the Pages app for her, and she's just beginning to get used to it and love it.

                                        This was our first experience with an Apple product and we are very pleased! User friendly, easy to set up and very intuitive. I got this in particular for it's video camera quality otherwise I might have chosen a tablet less pricey,. The Siri feature is terrific and works well. We love it and there are plenty of free apps and the battery life lives up to its press.

                                          Faster & better than the 3rd generation iPad. I bought the 16GB 4th generation for my 12 yr old brother as a Xmas gift. I own a 3rd generation which I bought from B&H Photo last year. No physical changes to this device except for the Lighting Connector. Which I must say I'm jealous about, the 30 pin connector is so big in contrast to the new connector. There are so many possibilities with the iPad, it is a fun, teaching & an entertainment device. My brother uses it for reading comic books, games, movies & having fun w/ Siri. This device won't replace a traditional laptop but it comes close. As for cons, I have none as my brother has not voiced any. I definitely recommend this device.
