    The new iPad replacement digitizer.
    My school ordered the new iPad the day it came out and less than a week after they got it someone dropped it and cracked the digitizer. I've replaced the digitizer for my 3rd gen iPod Touch multiple times so I offered to take a look at it. Everything works but the glass digitizer is broken. When I replaced the digitizer on my iPod Touch 3rd gen I bought the entire front assembly because it was about $2 more and made replacing the digitizer a lot easier. I've heard that Apple is permanently attaching the digitizers to the LCD in the newer iPods/iPads/iPhones but I'm not sure about the 3rd gen iPad. Should my school buy a replacement digitizer or a replacement digitizer/LCD combo.

    Since the latest generation of the iPad is so new, I suggest contacting the folks at ifixit and ask. They have already taken the new one apart and would be the best source of this information other than Apple.

    I would personally not do it yourself because you do not own the ipad. if you mess something up that is your responsibility. Apple has been generous with replacing shattered screens so see what they are willing to do first before you void the warranty. If you do it yourself you can do it for about 100.
