Smile New iPAD HD due out later this year

$$$$$$

Here's the latest: The company reportedly is working on a new iPad, due out later this year, that will have a higher-resolution screen.

Dubbed the "iPad HD" by a blog called This Is My Next, which is run by former editors from the respected tech site Engadget, the new iPad is said to be a "pro" device that could be used for high-end video editing and photography.

"Think MacBook and MacBook Pro," writes Joshua Topolsky, referring to Apple's lines of laptops.

The iPad HD, which would have a screen with twice the resolution of the current model, will be introduced in September alongside new software that will cater do these higher-end applications, the blog says, citing unnamed sources.

Ars Technica, another tech site, says the rumor makes sense given the fact that Apple has been releasing high-resolution versions of tablet content.

"Apple started including pixel-doubled artwork in versions of iBooks for iPad some time ago. It recently added yet more 2048 x 1536 pixel artwork in iOS 5 betas for newer features like Twitter and Newsstand. So it seems a pretty safe bet that a future iPad will definitely use this resolution," that site writes.

But Ars Technica doubts Apple would start a second, high-end line of tablet computers.

The high-resolution screen could boost the price of the Apple's popular tablet computer, which is the best-selling on the market, says the Time blog Techland. Full disclosure: Time shares a parent company with CNN.

"The screen itself would be so expensive that it'd be impossible to hit the $500 starting point pegged to the consumer versions of the iPad," Techland says.

I still don't understand what makes an ipad so great. Wouldn't it just be better to have a laptop?

another thing i don't get about apple stuff. Why is it once a new version of a product comes out, the old ones suddenly suck? It's not like they stop working.... or is it?

I've always been able to make my Apple stuff last a good while, but it does mean resisting the constant bombardments of temptations. Basically, if you need shit to throw money at, there's lway something there.

I'm very happy with my iPad 2. It's better than the first, and came in at the same price. A higher end version would not suit my purposes at all.

hahaha Apple is funny, the bloody power cords aren't even compatible from one model to another

Amazing marketers though, they have everyone convinced that everyone has a MAC, while they only have 10% of the market

Apple does suck. You pay an extra 20% for the Apple logo and you have to buy Apple accessories to get stuff to work.
I like how the iPad doesn't even have a USB port

iPad is by far the best tablet out there. And it's a tablet, you want a USB port buy a computer. Or wait a year and get iPad HD3 which will likely have one. lol

Again, why would you compare a notebook to a tablet?

I'll take an iPAD over any tablet out there, and i'll take a MAC laptop over my current Dell notebook anyday.

BTW, 1/2 the price? An iPad is 550-800$. What size notebook do you have?

Not sure it's quite as simple as that.

Yes, Macs tend to be "prettier" but I've been very happy with my Macbook's performance (after years of being a PC user).

No blue screen of death.

No lagging.

No annoying spyware to eff up your comp.

No freezing.


And I don't even have an anti-virus.

A year and a half after I bought it my laptop is still running as well as it did the first time I turned it on.

That's worth the extra 20% IMO.
