    Or for $130 less you can get the Kindle Fire, which is a superior product.

    That Applesoft logo is just getting more and more expensive by the day!

    iPhone 5 resolution: 1,136 by 640 (326 pixels per inch)
    iPad 3 resolution: 2,048 by 1,536 (264 pixels per inch)
    Kindle Fire: 1,280 by 800 (216 pixels per inch)
    iPad Mini resolution: 1,024 by 768 (163 pixels per inch)

    You're humiliating yourself by pretending that they're even remotely comparable.

    Which is more convincing? Posting these numbers or posting actual pictures?

    The iPad mini has the exact same resolution as the iPad 2. You can set an iPad 2 and an iPad 3 side by side and for 90+% of the time not tell the difference at a normal viewing distance. Now when you shrink that iPad 2 resolution down to a 7 inch screen, it's even less discernible.

    The pictures don't lie.

    It's certainly a cheaper product. No one with half a brain would call it a superior product, though.

    That's a silly question; The actual numbers are far more convincing. Now, nothing is more convincing than holding them in hand and side by side. And if you can't tell the difference when you've done that, then you need your eyes checked.
    If you think the resolution on the iPad 2 is even REMOTELY comparable to the iPad 3, you really need to get your eyes checked.

    The retina display is FAR superior, period, end of discussion.

    This from the genius trying to tell us that 163 PPI is as good as 264 and 326. :lmao2:

    Look at the pictures. They don't lie. Easy argument here.

    There is no point of arguing that some other product is better than an Apple product with theogt. Save your keyboard's life. :cool:

    It is a much superior product. At least to non-conformist who don't live and die by the Apple name. It has a superior O/S, a better screen and more customization options.

    As someone who manages an electronics store, nothing makes me laugh harder than the sheeple who come out to buy the latest iProduct just because of the name attached to it.

    Its gotten terrible reviews. Basically everything I read recommends against it. No one with any objectivity whatsoever is saying its a superior device. Not even close.

    But it is a cheaper device. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

    Yep, terrible reviews. :rolleyes: Of course, that is for the Kindle HD. Let's look at the older Kindle:

    Yep. Horrible reviews there too. :rolleyes:

    I just looked at the iPad mini. The size of it is absolutely perfect. I really wish it had the newer technology because I would buy one right away.

    There is definitely a difference in picture quality between the mini and full sized iPad.

    Well I got my iPad4 yesterday, and decided to have a looksee at the iPad Mini.

    Anyone who says there's no difference in screen quality between that and the iPad (3 or 4) is just clueless. If you want to make a fool of yourself, feel free to post all the pictures here you want, but you're just not fooling anyone.

    What you said was "the the difference between retina and the iPad mini resolution is barely discernible at a normal viewing distance."

    You've obviously never seen an iPad mini at a normal viewing distance - or you REALLY need your eyes checked.

    The difference between a 2 and 3/4 is barely discernible. The mini is better than a 2. This is backed up by high resolution photos.

    Game over, kiddo.

    Only to a blind man. The retina display is a HUGE improvement over previous models.

    Seriously, dude. Glasses can fix the fact that the whole world you view is all fuzzy.
    That silence you hear is the sound of absolutely no one at all agreeing with you, or even admitting you have a valid point.

    Now go back and try and figure out why it takes you more than 1 second to plug in the 30-pin connector. :laugh2: :laugh1:

    Unfortunately it wasn't. When I bought the iPad 3 I compared it constantly against the iPad 2 and was surprised (and disappointed) at how much the retina display didn't make much of a difference.

    Dear Rogah and Dear theogt.

    I kindly ask you to read Sam's below topic before responding :)

    http://cowboyszone.com/forums/dallascowboys.php?t=244606

    Now. Please note I am not siding with any of you. Just sharing my experience in case there are people referencing this topic before they decide what to buy.

    I just bought my 6 year old twin boys two of the new iPad with Retinas.

    I tried to compare the screen quality between iPad 2 and iPad Retina and couldn't tell the difference. I asked my wife for her opinion and she couldn't tell the difference either. The logic said go ahead and buy iPad 2 but my kids insisted on the Retina.

    Unfortunately I couldn't compare iPad Mini and iPad Retina because they were in different sections. I could bring iPad 2 and iPad Retina next to each other but not iPad Mini. But with uneducated eye, I couldn't really see that much difference between iPad Mini and iPad Retina.
