    You don’t have to settle for a tablet with a less-than-great display. The iPad started the march to very high-resolution tablets a couple of years ago, but since then, many other models have followed suit. Screens with upward of 300 pixels per inch now grace tablets priced as low as $230. Such high resolution means crisper text when reading books and magazines, and sharper images when viewing videos and photos. Portability is also improving with thinner, narrower tablets that are easier to hold in one hand and models that have longer battery life.

    The scholar
    Apple iPad Mini

    Apple has a store full of digital textbooks that let you add notes, use interactive features, and more. The iPad Mini, $330, is perfect for a student—it can deliver everything the iBooks store has to offer in a portable package of just 0.7 pounds.
    If picture quality is more important than portability, try the Apple iPad (4th gen.), $500. Its display is so sharp it's hard to see individual pixels.

    Apple recently announced new tablet models, the iPad Air and an updated iPad mini. We'll be testing both in our labs soon, so check back to see how they fare.

    And the link is to a page that only shows five photos, I guess the other two are variations on the iPad?
