why is it interesting read, it's basically what we all know alreadyInteresting read. He spent a month with the air.
Don't know what any of that is, but from the point of view of reviewing an iPad, he's a random guy. If this was an Ars Technica review I'd be impressed.How can you call the star of High School Musical, the WB series Summerland, Again, Me and Orson Welles, Charlie St. Cloud, New Year's Eve, The Lucky One, and The Lorax a random guy?
Its true, because a pound of feathers is lighter then a pound of iron"But the Air actually feels lighter than the mini since the tablets heft is distributed across a much larger device."
Exactly. The size/weight is an important criteria to many. The Air is great, but it doesn't fit in a jacket pocket. If that's important to you then the mini is the "better buy" since it's a closer fit to your needs/wants.Seriously, it all boils down to personal preference, some of us like the smaller form factor others like the larger iPad.
Actually there is. Choosing the one that doesn't fit your needs as well as the other just because some guy on the Internet says so is a "wrong decision."There's no wrong decision
Oh right, it's Zac Epstein world famous boy genius reporter not Zac Efron the talented entertainer and teenage heartthrob. My bad I always get those two confused.Don't know what any of that is, but from the point of view of reviewing an iPad, he's a random guy. If this was an Ars Technica review I'd be impressed.
First world problems :roll eyes:, Plenty of people/students carry $1000+ laptops out to class and coffee shops, etc.If I kept both, the mini would still be the device that goes with me everywhere. The air would stay at home and come with me to limited places. But then im not the type of person who sees value in paying $500 for a portable device to stay at home, so the better pick would be rmini.
Owning both, I have to say that's true. At least from my perspective. The weight distribution on the air actually does make it feel lighter in some situations."But the Air actually feels lighter than the mini since the tablets heft is distributed across a much larger device."
