    new to ipads

    Hi I am looking into geting a ipad but I don't know what to get I am a art and music student if that helps at all. And I do know a lot about electronics I just need some help finding something that is right for me. I'm am looking in to the newest ipad 4. I kinda think that is what I'm leaning to but a friend told me I should go with the mini. But I don't know

    Welcome to the forum, DoomCookie! The iPad4 and Mini both do exactly the same things, similar battery life etc. (except the Mini does not have the Retina Display screen, apparently not a big deal in the eyes of most people now enjoying their Mini) The only real difference is the size.
    Your best best is to go to the store and handle both of them. Think about where you will be using it, whether you will want to carry it outside the house a lot and where, how it would handle in class, on transport if you want to use it on that, whether you want it to fit inside any bag you may want to use, what size bag and so on. Other peoples' opinions are not as important as your own feelings about what is best for you after you have juggled both sized iPads in your hands?
    Regards, Andrew🐨

    Unless you plan to use it as a phone I would get the iPad4 bigger screen faster processor better for all around use. It's my choice.

    new to ipads

    I used them both. Bought a mini first and gave my ipad 3 to my mother. After using the mini for about 10 days, it was getting very annoying, the size and the screen is crap to me but its because i jumped on Apple bandwagon when iphone 4 came out and i have been using Retina display since than.

    Now the mini is portable a bit more than the ipad 4 but since i do a whole lot of emailing and typing scripts and web browsing, i find ipad 4 much much better and happy to have refunded my mini on time.

    But thats my opinion and take on it. To me Retina display and a bigger screen matter. I havent touched a laptop since iPad 3.


    Good luck with your decision.
