The new iPad 4

Black Friday couldn’t have come at a better time this year. We raided the piggy-bank and took off down to PB Tech to buy a new iPad 4 at ‘cost’. First thing this morning, we started testing…

The iPad 4 is important for us, we’ve been pushing the boundaries with the “3” and the new A6 chip in the “4” promises twice the performance. Initial testing suggests that for our purposes, that is optimistic; our solutions involve shifting data on and off the device and there are no real improvements in that respect. However, we do estimate a solid 20% or more improvement in processes that can be attributed substantially to the device itself. That alone makes the choice to buy iPad 4 over iPad 2 or 3 very easy.
