I ordered it, now I have to figure out how to move everything from my iPad1 to the new ipad4. I'm not an apple person, so much of it (Apple) confuses me. They don't work like normal computers.

Back it up, and do a restore, I did mine using ITunes (not my favorite piece of SW, but it did work). The setup procedure will tell you what to do, it did on the 12.9 inch one I just got given to me.

go to settings and make sure iCloud backup is set ON. When you get the new one logon with the same apple ID and it will restore automatically. Windows is way worse (Call me if you need help)

I saw something that reported that one had the best screen.
This was quite some time ago. The screen is good, and reasonably accurate, but has been surpassed by the newer iPad pros. I picked up this model for my wife at last year's Black Friday sale for $275. She had the prior model and really liked the size. I am not sure if this model is going to go away, but it has been some time since Apple updated it. It is a good buy if you need that form factor, but otherwise the newest iPad 9.7" is generally a better model.

this is mostly about size and more than enough res (2048-by-1536) for pic viewing. Processing needs are minimal. I really like mine for watching movies on a long flight with Bose noise reduction headphones.....ahhhh…..

I understand. I have worked with iPads, tablets and convertibles of all sizes and some tasks are best served by a certain sized device. Having said that, Apple has certainly slimmed down their standard 9.7" iPad from the days of the iPad2. Like many laptops, they have reduced the side bezels and made for a much slimmer device. For some models, this makes a huge difference. And in the case of the new iPad Pro, they crammed 11" into what was previously a 10.5" space. It does not sound like a lot until you compare all of the devices, new and old, with each other. I was surprised how small the older 10.5" model was in comparison to the 9.7". Now there is even more screen in the same amount of space.
