iPad mini vs. Windows

The world of compact tablets isn't what it used to be.

You want the newest, fastest, most stylish tablet. One you can slip into your bag and hit the road with. A sleek little device that you will count on for keeping in touch, getting things done, and playing a bit of Words with Friends.

Both Windows and the iPad mini give you apps, games, and touchscreen entertainment of all kinds. But Windows gives you the full power to be productive and get stuff done with your favorite desktop programs.
