Summary: Because if we compared it with the iPad 2 models, main differences for the iPad3 generation model line comprise a higher-resolution screen, quicker processor, enhanced camera, and better connectivity.
Pros: Backlit.User- friendly interface. A great data storage capacity. Light in weight.
Cons: If there is no internet It is useless. Battery life turns down rapidly.
Summary: All the stores discontinued the 3rd generation because of the 4th generation and mini that just came out. But I knew I could count on amazon to have it and it works just as good as if you bought it from the apple store. And shipping was fast.!!!
Summary: I bought the iPad for a sheet music library after seeing someone else using one that way. I use it while playing and that big file box of music does not get lugged around. I am using the iPad for more that, but for its intended purpose I am very satisfied.
