enough with the word retina. ive had enough with these silly complex words... it might work on your average isheeep and other uneducated cronies, but not on me.

If "Retina" is a complex word for some folks, I can only imagine what Otolaryngology means to him.

Use polysyllabic and the rest of us will know what you mean.

Allow me to make an equally uneducated comment: You're dumb.

It will probably need a more powerful processor along with more ram to support the beefed up resolution. I wonder how it will affect the battery life

I hope a bigger battery comes along as well.

Probably a smaller and lighter battery but better battery technology. Apple has been working on battery technology for a long time.

Battery life has been a focus for Apple with the iPad in the past, so I doubt they would allow it to drop too much, if at all.

apple is always behind in tech why do u think they copy
to get the res of a retina display it would have to have around
2600p X 1800p on its 9.7inch to get 326ppi notice i said around so i dont see that happening

Behind in tech? yes and no. In some things they're ahead in tech. And in some things behind.
