Below comes the in-depth comparison and you can get a complete picture of what you can expect from the two models.

Memory: Speaking of the inner memory of the two tablets, personally, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is in draw with iPad 3. Both two tablets are available in 16GB and 32GB capacities. Although iPad benefits with a 64GB option for users, the Galaxy Note 10.1 also presents us a microSD card slot for memory expanded.
Connectivity: We can easily find that both two tablets are in service of 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, aGPS and Bluetooth 4.0. However, iPad provides additional support to 4G LTE .

While iPad utterly caters to our varied requirements due to its perfect performance, state-of-the-art hardware and countless third-party apps selection. Although I am more inclined to the iPad 3, you can make a stand based on your personal preference.
