I really like the Ipad mini retina because off the screen (for my pictures) and the design. I also have a macbook pro retina. People I've spoken to say, the ipad is still restricted and for example connecting to shares on my windows pc and playing movies, show pictures is not possible. But.. what is true.. I don't know. Can somebody explain me if that's possible WITHOUT converting the movies/pictures. Can I show pictures directly from my netwerk? Which restricting can I expect when I buy a ipad instead of an android tablet?
