Yes, I am a newbie, this is my first post. Please be gentle...
I haven't entered the world of Apple since purchasing my iPod Classic about 4 years ago, but this is all about to change.
I'm looking at getting an iPad. I've chosen an iPad over the various other branded tablets out there.
I've used one before, so I'm not living in the dark ages entirely!
I thought I wanted an iPad predominantly because of the bigger screen size, I thought I preferred it.
I decided I would get the iPad (3rd Gen), rather than the older iPad 2. With me so far? Good.
Then I realized the 4th Gen iPad was being released in the not too distant future, and naturally decided I'd go for that.
I didn't think the iPad Mini would appeal to me at all, due to the screen size.
So, I went in to the Apple store to take a look, and the Mini is actually pretty bloody good.
I had the 4th and the Mini side by side. Obviously, the screen is way better on the 4th, but the Mini is a lot lighter, and size wise, it's not actually that bad. I'd definitely go for the Mini over the iPad 2. Better camera, more PPI, etc.
I just can't decide between the Mini and the 4th. It's heavy! Will I het tired of holding it? I'm pretty lazy.
I'd just like some opinions from you guys if you wouldn't mind. Bare in mind I have no other tablet, what do YOU reckon???
I should also say that I'm also looking at getting the MacBook Pro with Retina display, so it's not like I'm going to miss out on THAT screen entirely.
Anyway, cheers for reading. I'll look forward to our insight.
