Poll: Which iPad would you get and why?

Alright, alright, alright, settle down! Yes, the new iPads are now a reality, and the holidays can’t get here faster. Yes, this also means that a whole bunch of you will, one way or another, get their hands on the new goodies, be it by lining up at Apple’s brick & mortar stores, online, or simply getting one as a gift (lucky you!).

You may have gotten acquainted with our ways by now, so you know exactly where this is going. It's just that we love polling you on the latest gadgets and seeing the reasoning behind the choices you make, meaning that we do actually read most all comments. So, without any further ado, do lay it on us: which one is it going to be this time around – the big, 9.7-inch iPad Air, or the crystal sharp iPad mini 2 with its more compact form factor and impressive display? Let us know by casting your vote and then spilling your guts in the comment section right below!

Which iPad would you get and why?

The bigger, the better. The Apple iPad Air life for me!
Big is démodé. The compact iPad mini 2 for me, please!

In compare to multi user environment with moving objects on desktop with a smooth, fast, simple, cheap and great inbuilt quality nexus 7 is an iPad a tricycle Don't waste time with an outdated iConboard Buy a device with the biggest app market and freedom without security issues when installing just from play market

Glad that wasn't an option. Trolls would've messed up the accuracy of the poll.

Didn't say that, but we all know the trolls would've sabotaged the poll so it would look like no in the world wants an iPad.

Its not sabotaging the poll if your only giving youre opinion. (That is unless you vote an excessive amount of times.)

It is sabotaging a poll asking which iPad you would get if you give an option of "neither". It isn't a poll asking what tablet you would get, it's asking which iPad you would get if you got one of the new iPads. Obviously plenty of people would get different tablets. And he was saying there are so many trolls that they would sway the polls in that direction, not that one troll is voting again and again.

Nexus 7 2013 for me please. Still, I currently have the N7 2012, I think I'll just wait.

The 2013 one is so much better in almost every way. The bugs have mostly been sorted by now too. I replaced my 2012 with the 2013 and sold the iPad mini I bought as well (though that was just to try it out). Might get the mini 2, but there isn't really a compelling reason to get it compared to the nexus 7 now. Costs too much (400 plus tax) and then you have to get a case for it too, otherwise it'll go to hell in a month (never had to for either nexus 7).

Seriously, i'm impressed with the design but not to be amazed of it. Common apple, what's a matter with you. Where's the innovation?

Waiting for the next Nexus 10 by Asus. But, if I had to choose a iPad it would be the min-because of price. The same specs but cheaper 7.9 vs 9.7 no big deal.

iPad mini 2. There's really no reason to get the Air, it's all the same specs, but the mini actually has a higher pixel density. The display isn't so much smaller that it would drastically affect your usage.

NONE OF THE ABOVE. Im no troll btw. My old iPad 2 still works fine for me so no upgrade for me.

Too bad there was a "None" option. IOS is too restrictive. I would say IOS is controlled and restrictive as a cell phone / tablet OS as Verizon is to Android devices. I'm looking forward to leaving Verizon to get a Google Nexus 5.

The "none" option was not participating in the poll.

Considering that the user-base here has always been vastly Android-biased, I'm surprised it's not lower than that.

Considering the user base of iPhones is largely comprised of people who aren't nerds, geeks, or technology lovers like ourselves that isn't a surprise. I won't say that every Android user follows technology news, but I feel like more Android users do so than iPhone users.
