Deciding between iPad mini and iPad Retina (a guide)

For those (like me) struggling to choose, hopefully this will help put an end to the endless posts about which of these two superb products to spend your hard earned cash on..

Instructions: score the questions on a scale of 0=Not at all to 5=Very much

Factors for the iPad mini

How much do you value the cost saving of the mini over the retina iPad (0-5)
How much do you value the reduced weight/increased portability of the mini over the retina iPad (0-5)
How much do you value the thin bezel, newer industrial design of the mini over the retina iPad (0-5)
How much do you value the stereo speakers in the mini over the mono speakers in the retina iPad (0-5)
How much do you value the reduced charge time (2.5 hrs vs 6-7hrs with 12w charger) of the mini over the retina iPad (0-5)

TOTAL for iPad mini =

Factors for the iPad retina

How much do you value the retina iPad display over the lower resolution mini (0-5)
How much do you value the 9.7" screen of the iPad retina over the 7.9" screen of the mini (0-5)
How much do you value the better screen quality (blacks, gamut etc) of the iPad retina over the mini (0-5)
How much do you value the increased speed of the iPad retina over the mini (0-5)
How much do you value the future proofing of the iPad retina 1024Mb RAM vs mini 512Mb RAM (0-5)

Total for iPad retina =

Whichever scores higher wins !

(And if you don't like the answer that you get ... well then maybe that has helped make your decision too )
