This is simply awesome. From The Next Web:

…something funny happened at the Apple Store on Friday: Customers were actually having trouble telling the difference between the two screens. Because of this, we decided to set up a little test and see what happens when the iPad 2 and the new iPad are placed side-by-side.

So they provided a video of real people leading Apple stores…just watch:

The display is certainly sharper – that’s just a fact. It’s more a question of what happens when you hold a tablet at a regular distance and apparently a retina display may not be the end all. I’m sure many of you can tell the difference but it’s interesting to see average people failing what should be a simple test.


  1. my guess is either they are holding it wrong or they are not just holding it close enough…. idiots…. how dare them not see apple’s groundbreaking technology!!!!
