Samsung Nexus 10 versus Apple iPad: Which is right for you?

When it comes to 10-inch tablets, most consumers certainly think of iPad as the most powerful option out there. Sure, there are other high-end 10-inch tablets that are running on Android or Windows 8/RT, but they don't have the display power of the Retina and probably aren't as cutting-edge in processing and graphics as the newest 4th generation Apple iPad. This dynamic is now crashing down thanks to the newly announced Samsung Nexus 10.

The iPad Mini is here but some of us are finding it hard to get all that excited when similar tablets cost nearly $100 less.

That makes the starting price of $329 just a little hard to swallow.

In traditional Apple fashion, it takes an idea we've already seen and puts a twist on it.
