After spending about a day with the new iPad, it's clear that Apple's third-generation tablet is an improvement over its two stellar predecessors. Apps launch faster, websites load quicker and the camera actually takes good-looking pictures this time around thanks to a 5-megapixel rear shooter. But there is no question that the best feature found in the new iPad is its display.
