Kind of related to my last question: Is typical ebook reader with pdf support enough to read scientific papers (but I guess that this is distict enough).

What are minimal sreeen parameters for tablet so I can read papers with ease:

  • is 7'' screen size enough, or do I need 10''? I figured out that 5'' is not enough (to much scrolling).
  • Is getting additional 3'' (from 7'' to 10'') worth about 70% price increase?
  • is iPad's retina display (2048 x 1536) really usefull or I can stick to cheaper tablets?

The screen size really depends on how much scrolling/zooming you want to do...I would suggest trying both the 7" and 10" out in person.

As for the retina display, text is going to be much sharper. Again, I would check this out in person.
