Hello,

 

I read a lot of scientific journal articles (PDF documents).

I might also, occassionaly, like to scribble some notes.

 

I would like to know if I could comfortably use the iPad MINI Retina for these purposes.

 

I've searched online for this topic and I've not yet gotten a satisfactory reply. I've seen

the iPad MINI in a shop but am not sure if its screen size is too small for reading/hand-writing.

 

Any advice on this topic would be most appreciated.

 

Thanks

    You'll probably never find a satisfactory reply on line since this is really a personal decision, depending in part on your eyesight. I find the mini's screen to small for detailed reading. Even the full-size iPad's screen is none too large, but it's at least adequate for me. But I know others who find the mini's screen sufficient. I'd suggest that if at all possible you spend some time in an Apple Store or iPad dealer and decide for yourself.

     

    Regards.

    My advice would be if you can't make the call in-store by trying both devices, buy the iPad Mini, use it for a week or two. If you're not happy, take it back to Apple with 14 days for a no quibble swap to an iPad Air. (I think the return policy is 14 days)???
