[Pro] iPad Recommendation?

I’m thinking about getting an iPad to show off my work and take notes when selling my services. A side benefit would be the use of it for responsive website proofing. The only problem is I’m trying to decide between an iPad 2 and an iPad Retina display, which is about $100 more. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I don’t think Retina is essential but it’s certainly a nice benefit when creating @2x images. That said, if you can find a used Air it’s my understanding that it’s a substantial step up in terms of processing power. I have access to an iPad 3 Retina (not mine) and it works nicely for my needs.

Yep, you’re right. The iPad Air offers a big performance difference over the iPad 4. Thanks.

I would say the main benefit is testing responsive sites. And get a Retina display. Won’t be long now when all iPads will be retina.

I received my open box iPad Air a few days ago and I absolutely love it. Thanks for all your recommendations. I was surprised to see that most of my 980 grid websites look pretty good, even though they aren’t responsive.

However, the one thing I’m not happy with is the color of some of my websites. I don’t think this is necessarily a problem with the iPad. Instead, I think it has something to do with my primary computer, a MacBook Pro with two external displays.

Several months ago, I commented in this forum that I noticed a shift in display color when I upgraded to Mavericks. Although the color of my monitors under Mavericks looks great, I don’t think it represents the default colors that most people are seeing on their systems. As a result, I’m finding the websites I’ve designed under Mavericks seem to be quite a bit lighter when viewed on other systems or devices, like an iPhone or iPad.

Has anyone else experienced this?
