iPad 3 looks nicer.

I have both iPad 2 and "the new iPad" iPad 3 at home.

I agree that at the shop display, the two screen looks similar.

But when I use them at home, the iPad 3 is very significantly
sharper than iPad2. The higher resolution is easily seen at text and
graphics, in my opinion.

If you keep coming back to dpreview, I think that you would be
the type to want the ipad 3.

It really comes down to the "retina" screen. Like AndyGordon, I compared the iPad 2 and iPad 3 side-by-side. However, I could see a significant different (with photos in particular) so bought the iPad 3.

Your Mileage May Vary, as they say.
