(NECN) - The latest Apple iPad was unveiled on Wednesday, and it has the doubters raising eyebrows.

The new tablet, expected to hit store shelves on March 16, has a crisper display, sharper picture. It operates faster, offers 4G capabilities, and software integration.

Here are his pros for the new iPad:
- Retina Display, Speed boost, Better (5 megapixel) camera
- SOFTWARE - Integration (iPhoto, etc. - cloud & device integration)

Buyer beware:
- 4G LTE: Price (plus $30-$80/mo), Limited Coverage.
- AppleCare+: Price ($99 +$50 per incident, 2 incidents max), Compulsory (30 days to decide)

Advice for buyers:
- New iPad is hands down going to offer the best experience.
- First time? Go for 16/32 GB WiFi unless you have researched 4G.
- Already own an iPad? You know what you want. Cult of Mac recommends 32 GB, 4G LTE, Black. I bought a 16.
- Sell existing iPad.
