Why no retina display?
It's like saying "don't buy now, wait till next refresh" !!

GlennRuss says:

The A5 surprised me. Thought it would be at least A5X.

Joe McG says:

Why? The A5X was built to push the iPad Retina display. Otherwise it's speed is the same as the A5.

GlennRuss says:

Ok, forgot it was mainly graphics, but it did give you 1gb of ram compared to 512mb, and seems like I get very few page refresh when searching.

Stychill says:

yea...wow, no retina display and the price is still that high. Without a retina display i expected it to come in closer price wise to the nexus 7

Solublepeter says:

Does anyone know what "advanced Wi-Fi that’s up to twice as fast as any previous-generation iPad" is supposed to mean- they put 2x Wifi up on the slide- does the iPad 2 not count as previous generation? Both have 802.11n at two frequencies (which doesn't make it faster, as I understand it)

Joe McG says:

It's iPad 2 internals with a smaller screen and a lower price. I'm pretty sure this was predicted properly by many tech bloggers so it shouldn't be shocking.

kralnor says:

True.. there were a few rumored prices and a few rumored specs floating around though. I think people are more shocked that it came in at the highest rumored price and the lowest rumored specs. Which, they shouldn't be, since this is apple we are talking about. The first gen of any product isn't going to give you what you really want.

yannickzz says:

Must say i love it. No retina display is a bummer though. But i'm sure that will come in the 'next iPad upgrade' in a couple of months.

Carioca32 says:

So now do we expect March to see the A6X retina version, or will it come in October?

chipsterguy says:

how much ram cache on this little baby? 512 or 1G?

stuntmonkey says:

Retina isn't a deal breaker. Eyestrain would be. There's more to clear text than just lots of pixels. If my eyes are less tired after using it, then retina wouldn't be all that necessary. You can't complain about the price and complain that it doesn't have Retina, the two are mutually exclusive! Price is high, but you are getting a larger tablet than the 7" 16:9 androids. It's not a 7.9" is not a seven inch tab, it's an 8 inch tab, and a big one because it's 4:3.

DWPGQ says:

Is it really 4:3 still?? They upgraded the iphone 5 to 16:9, but leave the tablets 4:3!!!
Guess iwill be getting a Surface tablet.

kralnor says:

7.9 diagonal at 4:3 is a lot more screen to work with. Either way I'm sure Tim cook is going to be up all night worried about losing your sale to the surface because of it.

I'm more disappointed in the chip than the screen to be honest

I just love the build quality on Apple products!
