Macworld Buying Advice
We love the new iPad, and would definitely buy a newer model for the Retina display. Which one you want depends on your needs, but the 32GB WiFi only model is a good all-round purchase. Only upgrade to the 4G model if you really intend to use the mobile internet on a regular basis. Which colour you choose is up to you, we choose white this time but in general we think the black bezel is less distracting when you read on the device. If money is an issue then pick up an iPad 2 from the refurb store while stocks last or go for the £329 iPad 2 unit (it's still great and an absolute bargain).
