So ipad retina mini 16gb at 399$ yeah no thanks. But here is my dilemma I'm in need of a small tablet larger sized like the ipad air are just of no use to me. I'm between a Nexus 7 and the iPad mini 2. I have a macbook retina and an iphone 5 so I really want to stay in the apple ecosystem to just make my life easier, but now I face the tablet dilemma. First off everything I do everything I have is "retina" or basically to me just looks awesome and I cannot use a lower rez anymore the difference has become staggering, and I need a 32gb tablet at least. Here is the problem, nexus 7 32gb is $279, and that screen is just awesome. I want the tablet mostly for web browsing, E-reading, and maybe throwing some random files and stuff on for me to edit on the go. Now the ipad with retina 32gb is $499!!!! Almost double the price of the nexus 7, and yet they are very close spec wise, aside from the mini's 64bit processor and the larger screen, and the familiar ecosystem. So my question is has anyone had experience having a nexus 7 with and iphone 5 combination/macbook combo, and even though its two different ecosystems was it still a great experience? Because even though I really want the mini 2, for that price, with the nexus 7 staring at me in the face its extremely hard to go for the mini.
