I'm not sure which way to go. I've never had an Ipad before but really want one now. I have an Iphone so I'm not new to Apple's world. I know the weight is the main difference here but since I always carry my things in a bag it's not that important to me. My main uses would be: @uni: - Take notes - Read pdfs @home: - Play games (I'm not crazy for iOS games tho, I have a ps3 and a 3dsxl) - Watch videos And some other common things for a home user. PD: Both models are the 16GB version.
