Hey guys, I've been thinking about getting an iPad for my dad since father's day is coming up and I'm not too sure what to do. Basically, my dilemma is that my two choices are either the ipad air or the ipad 4th gen with retina. The ipad mini is not a contender since my father uses his ipad (1st gen) mainly for streaming shows/movies/watnot so the bigger the screen, the better! I figured it's time for an upgrade for him since his 1st gen ipad is becoming out of date. Does anyone have any suggestions as to which model I should be looking at? Things to take into consideration: I will probably be buying within a month so product life cycle (I don't want to buy something that is going to be updated within 3-6 months) The hardware is efficient enough to support seamless high quality video streaming Price is also a factor but I realize that the air is much more expensive than the 4th gen and I'm willing to fork out the extra 200$ if there is enough compelling reasons Anyways, thanks ahead of time for the comments and the help!
