    After comparing the Retina display iPad Mini with the original iPad Mini and the iPad Air with the iPad 4, it is time for a rather unusual specs battle: iPad Air versus the Retina display iPad Mini. These are two different products, aimed at a different category of consumers, but we can’t neglect some of the similarities they are carrying. And now, after the iPad Air was launched with an iPad Mini-like design, they resemble even more.

    This comparison is also meant to help those who are not sure what should they buy - the iPad Air or the Retina display iPad Mini? What you will discover is that the iPad Air and the iPad Mini are actually very similar and most of their features are the same. Each has a 5-megapixel rear iSight camera and 1.2-megapixel front-facing FaceTime HD camera; each comes in either silver or space grey, in four different storage options and they have the same battery lifespan of 10 hours.

    As you can see from the above table, the iPad Mini is cheaper by $100, but it is also smaller and more portable, measuring 7.87 by 5.3 by 0.29 inches and weighing 0.73 pounds. Both tablets come with the latest processor, along with the M7 motion co-processor. But while we find the Retina display in the iPad Air and iPad Mini 2, on the latter it produces a bigger number of pixels-per-inch - 326.

    For $100 less, the Retina display iPad Mini will come with the exact hardware and an even sharper resolution and is also easier to carry around. But, it's all about choice, as some might prefer a bigger tablet. So, what is your choice?
