iPad mini with retina display is the one for me. Honestly the Air is pretty slim and nice but it's not for me.

I'd rather have iPad 3/4, i think iPad Air looks nice but no bezel? Where i supposed to rest my thumb? 64bit architecture processor is nothing but a gimmick it definitely faster but it wont be night and day different...

Essential ipad app: google maps. To find out where is the nearest electronic waste disposal facility to get rid of it, and buy a gadget which is actually useful instead.

Awww, and just think the hater is typing this from his iPad air. Dude you're trying to hard, even most of the android guys have gotten tired of you.

It's all that stale and rotten momma's-basement air he's breathing. It's gotten to his head.

And he's 27 (according to him), time to leave mommy's and start dating. He can take his iPad air with him. +1

My family actually owns an iPad 2.. I am forced to use it sometimes when I need a bigger screen to do stuff... very very limited stuff. Play games and surf the web.

I'm a Samsung guy, but when it comes to tablet I'd get an iPad. both are great and the multitasking Samsung has is amazing as I use it all the time. But hey the Apple is 300$ cheaper and I'd like the 4:3 aspect ratio and also, I remember the "I feel at home" feeling of ios. I will be getting a Mini with Retina soon.
