User satisfaction with the new iPad is even higher than previous iPad ratings from a February 2012 ChangeWave survey (http://www.changewave.com) of more than 200 owners of the latest Apple tablet.
More than four-out-of-five new iPad owners (82%) say they are “very satisfied” with the device, and another 16% say they’re “somewhat satisfied,” notes the research group. That compares with 74% and 23% for the iPad 2.
ChangeWave says, the Retina display (75%) is what new iPad owners report they like best about the device. Long battery life (22%) comes in a distant second, followed by 4G LTE capability (21%) and the faster processor (20%).
When asked what they dislike most about their new iPad, users cited the cost of the device (26%) and the cost of the wireless data plan (23%) as their two biggest gripes. Two other issues were each cited by 8% of owners — the iPad’s size/weight and its amount of flash memory storage. Additional dislikes mentioned include its integration with other devices (7%), excessive heat coming from the device (7%) and battery life (6%). No other issue was cited by more than 5% of new owners.
