Hey guys, It is not just another iPad Air vs. iPad Mini Retina thread. For days, I have been struggling with an important question what to buy for my Girlfriend as a gift. In a while, we will go to our local Apple Store (Amsterdam) and I will ask her (indirectly) what she would like to have: an iPad Air or an iPad Mini Retina. Just to know what she prefers. As she is not very technical, she might say that she likes both devices. I do have an iPad 4 at home and think that it is quite big for her girly hands. (the Air is a bit smaller and lighter, but nevertheless) The problem is that I perfectly know everything about the pros and cons of both devices. As a girl, she might fall in love with the smaller iPad Mini Retina. On the other hand, I know that the Air has a much better color reproduction, a bigger screen and better heat dissipation. (100 Mhz more CPU speed is not very important) While she might be able to easily travel with the Mini Retina and take it to her lectures, the Air is bigger and it is easier to surf on the Internet and read Pdf files on it. But you cannot comfortably hold the Air in your hands (especially, if you are a girl) and it cannot easily be transported in a tiny purse. Is there anybody who bought an Air/Mini Retina for his girlfriend/wife/mother? What do they prefer? What do your "better halves" think about these two devices? What is your opinion on this? Any ideas/suggestions are welcome! It will help me to better structure my thoughts and buy her an Apple device that she will enjoy for many years to come.
