Will there be a noticeable difference between the way 720p videos (or ripped dvds) play on the ipad 3 vs. the ipad 2?

Not really - you might get better color saturation, but the quality will look more or less the same.

First of all, the new iPad can PLAY 720p videos at the full resolution -- 1280x720 instead of downsizing it to 1024x768 as it did before, so there's that right off the bat.

Secondly, the new display is, according to every review I've read, much more than just 4x resolution improvement. And more than just a bit more color saturation, so the reviewers say.

So yes, I think you should expect a noticeable improvement, and even more so if you upgrade those videos to 1080p -- which you can do for free if they were purchased through iTunes.
Well, I'll know on Monday.

The resolution is interesting, given 720p content is almost always 16:9, so 1024x768 can't really accommodate it anyway and I hadn't considered that, good point.
