    ipad3.
    It's better, stronger and I'd say more hi-res.
    GOGOGO
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    I have the 3 and my husband has the mini. It basically all comes down to size. They both do the same and work the same, etc. He got the mini so he could take it to work in his military cargo pokect.

    I was also thinking about the mini but I thought it was to small. You could just keep browsing on your phone instead. Go for the original.

    iPad 3 don't exist anymore. It's the iPad 4.

    But go for the real iPad. The mini is just a crapy version with really bad hardware for the price.

    The Mini doesn't have Retina display, and for that reason alone I'd recommend getting the normal 4th gen. iPad

    Do they call it "ipad 4" or is it "4th generation"?....anyway, the only difference is the damn cord. It's basically the same as the 3.

    Get the high-powered Retina-flashing manly-man muscle-laden Ipad 4
    Not the wimpy, low-fat, smaller cousin with poor sight... or as others call it, the mini.
    lol

    This is wrong. The ipad 4 is a lot more powerful than the ipad 3 and instead of using the a5x it uses the a6x the same SoC found on the iphone 5 (instead of the 4s) but with an extra graphics core.

    Neither... Get a Google Nexus7, 10".
    Or
    If you're an Apple Whore then wait till early/mid next year for the iPad5 which is their slightly new take on the iPad mini. Now comes with something else unrecognizable to the blind eye at twice the cost than the previous brought out less than 6 months ago. Go Team Apple!

    Neither. Apple products are nothing but crap compared to other brands. You pay twice the price of any other product or more if it has that Apple logo on it.
    16 gig Ipod nano? $140 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Apple%26...&skuId=6225963
    16 gig Any other MP3 player? As low as $90 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olstempl...e=listing&gf=y

    Ipone 5? Can't find a decent price from a legitimate site that has the Phone itself without a contract found a website saying they could cost up to $850 where the Galaxy S3 unlocked is $750 and sells better than the Iphone. One of the reasons why Apple is suing them because they are losing sales and the shape of the phone.

    Ipad? 16 gig is $500 32gig is $600 64 gig is $700 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/iPad-Tab...at209000050007 That is only the Wi-Fi versions without internet capabilities without the Verizon Contracts.
    16 gig Kindle Fire $200 32gig Android tablets start at $250 for whatever a Kobo is or a Nook for $300. 64gig Kobo $300 of $500 for a Toshiba.

    Laptops and computers? Don't even get me started. Crappy OS coupled with wayyyyyyy out of date hardware for 3 TIMES the normal cost of any laptop or desktop with the same components or even better components for the desktop.

    Orbitus i totally agree!

    If you want to pay an extortionate amount of extra cash just for some shoddy apple on the back of your product then go ahead. But you can get much better quality, and style of items if you look around. Galaxy S range phones have been a strong competitor to Apple in the recent years, and Apple being the lead brand for Tablets is a thing of the past.
