But what do all these specifications really mean? We're here to break it down for you.
Our friends at TechRadar got to go into the demo room and play with the new iPad. The new Retina Display makes even the Home screen look better than ever, and the new processor means that the device is fast and quick to react--everything a tablet should be. Though it's a bit heavier than its predecessors, the new iPad is definitely giving all other tablets a run for their money. Jump ahead to see the photos.
