The king of tablets. What's left to say about the iPad that's not already been said?
The reason that I'm including the full-sized iPad in this list is that in all the hype surrounding the iPad mini it's easy to forget that whatever you might be able to do on the iPad mini, chances are you'll be able to do it better or easier on the iPad.
Unless you have a specific reason in mind for wanting a tablet with a small screen, there are good chances that the larger screen will be more of an advantage than a disadvantage.
Price: $399 for the (16GB, Wi-Fi) iPad 2, or $499 for the (16GB, Wi-Fi) iPad 3 with Retina display.
