Apple iPad 4

Released alongside the iPad mini, the fourth-gen iPad also goes by the fancy name of “iPad.” Not to confuse anyone (but also confuse everyone), this is the one with the Retina display. It also has the Multi-Touch display, the IPS and the LED backlighting, but in a 9.7-inch screen that can display an eye-popping 2048-by-1536 resolution at 264 pixels per inch. It has the same camera features as the mini and the Lightning connector, as well as the same battery life. However, the hook here is that big, beautiful screen. Oh, it also has a ton of power, thanks to a new dual-core A6X chip with quad-core graphics.

MSRP: Like the iPad mini, there are 16GB ($499), 32GB ($599) and 64GB ($699) WiFi models available. If you want to add in options for a data plan, expect to pay $629, $729 and $829, respectively.
Carriers: AT&T, Sprint, Verizon
