Agony, oh, agony!
I'd jump threw a window right now if I didn't live on the ground floor.
Any thicker and this thing will bomb
I'll bet it's the A6 "sandwiched" 4-core CPU/GPU processor. Jettison that thing
! Thinness is the top priority
Or I'll bet it's the longer-life but thicker batteries used. Change to thinner, but lower-life batteries! THINNER!
Or maybe it's the backlighting system rumored for the iPad "3's" new display that's the culprit in it's deplorable thickness. PLEASE! stick with the current display technology in the interest of thinness.
If this thing's any thicker than two Time Magazines, you can count me out!
I want it as thin as a newsletter (or less).
Oh, and the weight
If I lay on the couch and rest my current iPad 2 on my chest, it is SO
heavy that it makes breathing difficult. This COULD result in asphyxiation in an untold number of users, and a class action suit could certainly result!
I'll take a redesign of the iPad 2 with the only changes being thinner and lighter
. That's the only
thing that's important.
If Apple has to shorten battery life or replace the 1024x768 display with one at the same resolution but thinner and lighter, or go back to the thinner A4, they should. THINNER (and lighter)
I'll buy one. But thicker is a deal-breaker
. Thinness is the highest priority of all. Paramount
If a mugger has designs on your thinner iPad, just hold it completely horizontally (running a "bubble level" app if necessary), and he'd halt his advance abruptly and be like, "Huh? WTF?! Where did it go?!! It....DISAPPEARED
!" He'd walk away befuddled, and you'd be safe (and not dispossessed of your iPad).
This could avert countless crimes.
But make the iPad "3" thicker, and I'll organize an "Occupy Apple" sit-in protest that will instantly descend upon Cupertino like hellfire!
Thicker?I won't have it
! I mean, HONESTLY!
