The clarity of the pictures and everything on my ipad is very very impressive. I have an iphone and for other purposes use dell and asus window computers. The size is great. Some things require some more research, like how to get extensions added to safari, but thanks to the internet questions like these are quickly resolved. If you like clear pictures and text and easy navigation, then the iPad is for you. I noticed that the battery drains a lot slower than on my iPhone, but then it seems to take a while to charge once it is drained. Plugging it in at night should always give me an ipad ready to go. So happy with this purchase.
