Will the new display justify the extra cost that customer has to pay for this new ipad.

Don't be feeling sorry for Apple here. Their margins based on the table are higher than 50% which is very healthy for any system company especially one in the consumer space. The margins are highest for the 16GB ipads which are also their highest selling ones. Another interesting thing is that the manufacturing cost has gone up from $8 to ~$10 per ipad - I wonder if that could be attributed to better labor conditions in China or is the new ipad more labor intensive?

Apple has huge advantages with scale of production. Competition wont be able to break even, if they provide a similar HW spec.

Only $30 increase in the display? Surprising to me...

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
