You maybe at the crossroads as to which one to go for. Should you go for the IPad Mini with Retina Display or the IPad Air? These two tablets are almost too similar. But of course you’d want to get your money’s worth so it makes sense to look into these two tablets to see which one suits you the best.
A Look Into The Hardware Specs
The first thing you’d really want to compare the specifications of the two tablets. TechSmartt has a comprehensive comparison of the hardware specifications.
“The IPad Mini with Retina display features a 7.9-inch retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 and pixels per inch of 326. As the IPad Air features a 9.7-inch retina display…again with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 and the pixels per inch of 264.”
The PPI of the IPad Mini with Retina Display is pretty high for a tablet. But given the 9.7-inch display of the IPad Air, you might still want to go for the bigger screen.
Now take a look at the inside of these two tablets. They both run on the Apple A7 ARM chip.
“So in terms of processing power here, they both feature the A7 chip which features the 64-bit architecture in there followed by M7 coprocessor.”
In terms of weight, the IPad Air is just a little heavier than the IPad Mini.
“The IPad Mini weighs in at 12 ounces as the IPad Air comes in at 17 ounces. So definitely a weight difference there and if that’s a big thing for you, that’s something worth to consider.”
They are both incredibly thin at 7.5 m. For those who love to take “selfie” shots, take at good look at the camera on both tablets. These two tablets feature the iSight camera. It’s a rear-located camera and it comes with 1080p HD video recording. There’s also a front-facing camera that is packed with I.2 mega pixel with 720p HD video quality.
The Software Specs
Again both tablets boast of the state-of-the-art mobile operating system, the iOs 7. Basically, there’s nothing to compare there. They are both incredible.
“So this is a completely new design. It’s skinless, nice. It feels good. It’s sleek.”
The display on both of the tablets is just awesome. TechSmartt describes it vividly.
“Content flies off the page, text is super clear and crisp and it’s just a treat to go and watch movies, play games, browse the web, edit if you wanna edit with iMovie. Just do normal day-to-day functions and this tablet can even do higher grade stuff and that’s why I love the iPad … The displays on these things are some of the highest that I have ever seen in any type of tablet.”
The differences between the two tablets are hardly noticeable. Maybe you’d want to think about the weight but other than that, the overall performance of both tablets is amazing. They can definitely give you the most wonderful experience.There’s no doubt that you’ll get your money’s worth and that’s because you can’t go wrong with either one.
