My friends and mentors over at fxphd have just done a quick test of the new iPads screen, which along with the testing by displaymate, confirms what I have discovered anecdotally. The screen on the new iPad is the best I have ever used, and bodes really well if Apple decide to use retina displays in new laptops and iMacs which are rumoured to be coming very soon, maybe even Friday now that the IvyBridge chips have now been released by intel.
If your a design professional and haven't played with one of the new iPads, please do. Your folio looks stunning, even my reel which I had mastered at 720p pops like a bright orange, For the first time, I can see the benefit of loading raw files directly into the iPad for processing. Text is much easier and less tiring to read. I have been an idiot and gone through each iteration of the iPad. But the new one is worth every penny of the upgrade if your a person like me, and if you are god help you;).
