So Many people have a hard time deciding between the 2. So would people agree with the below pros & cons for the benefit of those people? iPad pros - Large Retina Screen (good for high quality photos, diagrams, CAD) - A6X chip (good for power hungry apps such as photo/video editing, CAD, 3D gaming) Cons - Some people may not find it ideal to use as a portable device especially for travelling - It is more expensive - Some people may not like the design Ipad mini pros - Very portable & 1 handed use possible (may be better as an ereader for some or travel companion) - It is cheaper - Some people may prefer the design. Cons - A5 chip & 512MB RAM may mean future OSs won't run as well which may be an issue for some - Smaller screen (this may be an advantage to some but others may want a larger screen) Conclusion - Mini is better for those who want a cheaper or more portable device and aren't bothered by screen size or lack of retina. For everyday web browsing, emails, ereading this is a good device. It is also good for extended holding, it can be held like a small clipboard. - Ipad 4 is better for those people who want a larger, high quality screen. It is still portable as it is much lighter than any laptop but you may need to rest it against something for extended use. It is suited for 3D gaming, more graphic intensive apps, high quality photos, CAD etc and those who just like the large retina screen for their everyday activities.
