Retina IPad Mini Vs New Kindle Paperwhite: Which One To Chose?

asked

I own a iPad 2( No retina) which I use mostly for reading and browsing. However the iPad screen is not great for reading and because I spend most of my day in front of the computer I seem to get a very sensitive eye later in the day. My question for those that own a Kindle Paper White is: would it help with my eyes strains or is the change to an e-ink screen not noticeable enough? Is the new iPad mini with retina display a better e-reading device?

asked

Hi For readign the E ink is the best possible screen you can get since it has no backlight so it makes the reading a joy on it with no strain on eyes. 2nd best option is a high res screen which wont pixelate text. if you want something just for reading e ink kindle's are best. if u want one device for multiple purpose then go for a high res screen near the 2k res mark.
