Which iPad is better, continued

On Friday I wrote a
that suggested, perhaps, that the iPad 2 is a better device than the iPad 3.
The reasons: 1. Battery life. 2. Weight. 3. Heat.
I don't see that much difference in screen quality. Sure the new iPad has a nicer screen. But 1-2-3 above are pretty important too.
So I keep both around. Sometimes I have trouble telling which one is which.
Surefire way to tell: Turn on the pad, see how much battery is left. If it's 80 percent, it's the old one. The other one usually runs with about 20 percent.
