The 1.24-pound Tab 10.1 feels lighter in hand than the 1.33-pound iPad; in actual use, however — holding it up to read, etc. — I'd say that weight difference isn't all that obvious.

Even now, the 9.7-inch Retina display on the iPad 4 is a marvelous thing to behold – mainly because it’s super detailed thanks to its 2048 x 1536 resolution, which puts up an admirable pixel density of 264 ppi.

Galaxy Tab 10.1  vs iPad 4 

8.0
9.3
The 1.3-pound iPad's 2048 x 1536 Retina display is still among the best we've seen on a tablet — I'd say the best, but the Nexus 10's display is also pretty great.
