Why get a 2 over the original?
I am an engineer but I seriously think for the £60 difference for what I PERSONALLY use for it won't matter.
A5 vs A7 64bitM7
IPS 1025 x 768 vs Retina 2048 x 1538
These are the main (and fairly big) differences. I know I will be able to tell the screen 24-7 and can get over that but the processor for my usage I think I don't hammer it enough.
Can someone give a truthful assist (from experience) where I would notice the difference. I don't mind the £60 extra if really is a good idea.
My final thought is that it is a generation behind therefore i will be that generation earlier where i won't be able to ypgrade eventually.
It is to be a keeper so think it may be worth the extra purely on the IOS upgradability basis.
