The iPad 2 had a 1GHz dual core processor named A5 and 512MB RAM. The iPad 3 went with an even faster processor and larger RAM, each at 1.2 GHz and 1GB respectively, the processor named as A5X. But these figures are just figures and the true utilization of resources lies in the heart of iPad’s iOS. All the iPads are smooth to operate and only the first generation of iPad felt sluggish while using, the other two have no noticeable lag to the everyday user. It is a complete end-to-end device with almost no hassles from internet surfing to playing hardcore games, everything feels buttery smooth to execute.
True to their claims, every iPad has proved its mettle in terms of longevity and survive the day. Heck, it even goes a mile ahead and homes a peace in your mind that you still have that little battery left to shoot an important mail. iPad, iPad 2 and the iPad 3 all have exceptional battery life which outlast even Apple’s claims of lasting upto 10 hours. The iPad 2 and iPad 3 both survive for 10 hours 30 minutes before they need to be docked to the wall socket. The life can be increased even more with the Wi-Fi turned off. That’s the beauty of integration of hardware and software. The software knows what and when to use and how to bring out the maximum of the available resources.

It has a 9.7-inch IPS screen (measured diagonally) which provides wide angles of viewing. iPad and iPad 2 had a screen resolution of 1024 X 768, which was changed forever the way we used to see things on a tablet, with a 2048 X 1536 pixel display on iPad 3, which is a million more than your brand new clinging high definition LCD/LED TV in your hall. That much pixels in your hand. Most of the HDTVs have a resolution of 1920 X 1080 (2.073 million pixels). iPad 3 on the other hand, has 3.1 million pixels in the same area of display!
