I just realized the iPad Air 3 and the iPad mini 5 have the same specs at the same price.
I just saw the air 3 for $400 at Costco after buying a mini for $380 a few days ago. Our campus bookstore had the iPad air 3 listed at $500, which threw me off when deciding between the two.
The thing is, I just really like this mini. All I have to do is learn to jack up:the font sizes so I don’t have to wear my glasses. It’s small enough to fit in a coat pocket. My wife doesn’t give me the glare of doom when I use it in public.
A case just arrived from Amazon. That’s going to make it even more convenient to carry around instead of using a fanny pack. I’ll reach for the mini instead of the android phone.
On the other hand an iPad air 3 has that relatively spacious,previous gen 10.5” screen, the same fast processor and is pretty thin and fairly portable.
I suppose this is a good dilemma to have.
