"very high quality product", you made me lol on that one. Beside the "retina" display and better components there is not much more. We will see what will happen with the heat issue, this is not going to expand the longevity of the tablet.
I don't think anyone can say much about the yellow screens (and the 5% was a worst case scenario, the real value is probably much lower), perhaps it's a bad batch. But what is sure, is that if anyone receives a defective iPad, they can get a new iPad without any problem. So I don't know why you guys are trying to make it more of an issue. If anything, with Apple having retail stores in many countries, it's even easier to deal with these problems when compared to other manufacturers.
Besides, a small bad batch of products does not point to a low quality product, it's a problem in the production, not a flaw in design. A product's quality is judged based on the longevity of a healthy initial model.
A retina display and better components are not minor upgrades. The iPad 2 was already one of the top tablets during its lifetime, and the iPad 3 adds 4x the resolution, 2x the GPU power, 2x the RAM, LTE, a better ips panel, 2+x larger battery, better camera (in both the audio and video recording) and voice dictation. Do you think that's a minor upgrade?Edited by born2bwild - 3/19/12 at 2:50pm
