Should I buy an iPad mini or iPad – iPad mini versus regular iPad?
The iPad mini is taking the tablet world by storm. It’s cheap (cheaper), small, and portable. It’s a no-brainer, right? If you are stuck with this common dilemma, you’re not alone. “Should I buy the iPad mini or regular iPad?” Lots of customers have approached our NYC iPad tech team with this question.
Here’s our condensed answer: “Yeah, why not?” Here are factors to consider in making your decision:
- Eyesight – If you have poor eyesight or like big icons, the standard full-sized iPad is more up your alley. I’m not saying the iPad mini is too small, but the regular iPad is better for those with bad eyes.
- On the run a lot? – Go with the iPad mini. You can tuck it easily into your bag and sometimes big jacket pocket. It’s really easy to move around with you.
- Kids? – Bringing your iPad to dinner for the kids, the iPad mini is easier to move around and has good stands nowadays to work with.
- Replacing your laptop? – Go with the regular iPad for a laptop replacement. More screen area means faster processing.
