Which iPad Should I Buy?

Posted on June 17, 2013 by admin There have been 0 comments

Since its launch in January 2010, the Apple iPad has dominated the tablet market. To meet up with advanced technology, Apple has continuously improved the tablet, making upgrades to its storage capacity, screen resolution, processor, connectivity options and form factor which creates more choices for the consumer to choose from. Now, a consumer can choose from – the iPad Mini, iPad 2 and iPad with Retina Display popularly known as the iPad 4.

Confused about which size iPad you need? We walk you through several types to find the right iPad for you.

iPad Mini

The mini is the cheapest-ever iPad. If you are looking for a smaller size and easier portability, it may well be the better option. The iPad Mini is remarkably thin and light and is the perfect size for holding in one hand. It fits comfortably in the pocket of a coat or a handbag, making it ideal for use on the move.
It's also beautifully designed, with obvious influences taken from Apple's iPhone 5. This version measures 7.87″ by 5.3″ and runs at the exact same resolution as the iPad 2, so all the iPad apps currently available will run seamlessly on it. It has a similar processor to the iPad 2, and also includes the new Lightning connector.
The iPad mini is a great choice for those most interested in watching movies, listening to music, reading books and playing casual games. It will run all the same apps the full-sized iPad will run and comes with most of the same features. However, it does not have the Retina Display which is present on the iPad 4.

So, if you value portability over the power of the processor and prettiness of the screen, the iPad mini is just right for you.

iPad 2

It weighs twice as much as the iPad mini but is very slim and certainly more portable than a laptop. It however has a significant price difference from the iPad mini if that is not a problem for you. But for those wanting the full-sized iPad but hoping to save some money on the more pricey iPad 4, the iPad 2 is a solid choice.
The iPad 2 only comes in one model: the 16 GB Wi-Fi model. It can do everything the iPad Mini can do, but has a lower camera quality and won't take quite as good photos.

So, if price is more of an issue to you than getting the latest iPad, the iPad 2 is still a valid point of entry.

Refurbished iPad 3
If you don't mind refurbished units, you can opt for the iPad 3. The 16 GB Wi-Fi iPad 3 comes cheaper than the iPad 2. And because the iPad 3 has the Retina Display, a faster graphics processor and better dual-facing cameras, you are getting more for less.

iPad 4

If you're happy to pay some good money for a tablet, and want a 10 inch screen, the fourth-generation iPad also known as the iPad 4 is definitely the one to go for. It’s the fastest, most powerful iPad that Apple has made to date.
It has updated cameras, including a 720p-capable front camera, and a slightly-better-than-the-iPad-3's rear camera. The iPad 4 has an incredibly high-resolution Retina Display that makes apps, movies and even web surfing look incredible.

If you know you want a top of the line iPad, with the latest and greatest features and every bit of cool technology Apple has to offer, then get the iPad 4.

In general, choosing the model of iPad to buy comes down mostly to two things: price and portability.
