2013 iPad Air and iPad mini buyers guide

“There’s a lot to consider before you buy or upgrade to a new tablet, even a new iPad,” Rene Ritchie reports for iMore.

“What’s more important, portability or productivity? Can you live with an older, cheaper model or do you really need a newer, more expensive version? Which color, what capacity, and if you want cellular data, on which carrier?” Ritchie reports. “There’s never been more to choose from, which means it’s never been harder to choose!”

Ritchie reports, “Enter iMore’s 2013 iPad buyers guide. We’ll go over all the details, all the options, and help you decide on which iPad is perfect for you.

    If the original iPad still works for you, that’s great. Ride it into the sunset.

    My wife has an iPad 3 with a retina display. The only time I notice mine doesn’t is when we purposely compare screens. VERY happy with my iPad.

    Congratulations to those of you who get a new iPad tomorrow or over the weekend!!!

  4. Fuck that retarded iOS 7. Makes the iPad look like an Android pad.

    I have not seen an uglier OS since Windows Mobile 6.5, and that is going back a long time. It’s uglier than Android, and definitely uglier than Windows Phone 8. Jesus is it butt ugly.
