Well you won't find Apple here. This is a user to user support forum and Apple does not respond to posts. If you have only had your iPad for a week, you have access to Apple Phone Support.
Google provided the following link, which I believe will let you reach Apple in Thailand.

The link you provided is a virtual store which is run from Singapore.
- Apple Singapore only provides sales support
- Apple USA provides worldwide "marketing" support
Posting to this iPad forum is clearly a complete waste of my time.

What do you understand to be meant by the term 'Retina Display". Turning your ipad on should be demonstration enough. Why would Apple upload to you tube - it has its own marketing and news channel. Open SAfari and tap on Apple bookmark, navigate to the bottom of hte page and tap on Media Info.
Best wishes, Ct.

The Apple Media link contains the following material:
- Press Releases in .html format
- Product images in .zip format (which is a .tif file not even .jpg)
The product material is not available via Safari on my iPad
There are no videos here, so where are they?

I have had my new iPad 3 for about a week as I live in Thailand.
- I am unable to find any material from Apple that demos the new retina display.
- I can not find any material on YouTube involving Apple iPads that has been uploaded by Apple
- There are very few posts on Apple's iPad support regarding this issue and none responded to by Apple.
I and many other new iPad 3 users would appreciate responses from Apple's iPad marketing team!
There isn't any material to "demo the retina display" other than just using it. What is it you want to know about it?
Apple doesn't post on YouTube.

Open an iTunes store account, browse to films and watch some trailers for free. Since you already own an ipad, I'm struggling to understand what your problem seems to be. What exactly is it you want Apple to provide you with?
A retina display, simply means that in normal viewing conditions the resolution is so fine you cannot see the individual pixilation on screen, something that was apparent if , for instance, you downloaded an App for iphone which was half screen size, zooming it to fill the ipad screen allowed individual screeen pixels of the image to be noticed. The retina display minimizes, stops the pixelation when zooming in low res originals.
Start downloading-playing some free material to see for yourself.
If you have problems with viewing material because of censorship, then set up a store account with an overseas recognised bank account for payment. Go into settings and change your location and international time zone support information, along with the Allowed Content settings under Settings\General\Restrictions.
In iTunes, choose a store that matches your financial arrangements. If you have already set up an account, you will need to close it first. Then set up a fresh acccount with your new details, choosing a new Store location at the same time.

You won't find any video materials that demonstrate the Retina screen, for the simple reason that it's impossible. The retina screen is already better than HD, and the only way to see how good it looks is to use one. Any YouTube video wouldn't show the screen properly, becaue of downscaling and compression, plus it'll be a lower resolution.

Actually...you can only get 1080p (HD) videos to play from iTunes. That's it. That's as high as it goes.
But... 2K or 4K videos from YouTube are acually higher resolution than HD, even higher than a retina display!
But since the Apple YouTube app actually doesn't play YouTube videos in HD, the retina display doesn't actually look any better as far as movies are concerned.
Therefore, in order to truly see the "retina", you would have to download a 2K or 4K video sync it to your iPad to truly view the "retina" display as a movie.
I don't know why Apple makes the so-called "retina display" so hard to actually see for something that's supposed to be "Resolutionary"
(I don't see the difference.)
