The good

  • Text is gorgeous. No backlit screen has ever come so close to paper.

  • My eyes don’t strain late at night, even after working late.

  • I’m probably going to use the iPad even more because looking at it is so much easier than looking at any other display.

  • Speech dictation is awesome, fast, and accurate. Last weekend, I dictated an entire home project into my iPad as I walked room to room.

  • Battery life is at least as good as what I experience with the first iPad.

  • It’s easily the fastest device I’ve ever used.

The bad

  • Don’t use the new iPad next to your MacBook. The new iPad makes every other display look worse. It’s that good.

The conclusion

Is this the future of computing? Yes. But we won’t use words like “computing” much longer.
