Game 1 of the 2013's Tablet World Series was almost the blow-out that saw the Red Sox win over Detroit in Game 1 of the MLB Series. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 beat the iPad Air by a margin of 37 percent. Today's matchup between the Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display vs. the Lenovo Miix2 promises to be just as exciting. You'll have until 8 a.m. tomorrow (10/26) to cast your vote. 

The new iPad mini with Retina Display builds on a winning formula by adding a sharp 2049 x 1536-pixel resolution screen to an already sleek design. This slate can also burn rubber around the bases, thanks to speedy A7 CPU. You'll also find a 5-MP camera for capturing the action and a slick new iOS 7 user interface.

The Miix2 will support a stylus and will come preloaded with Microsoft Home and Student 2013,. Plus, the Miix2 costs only $299, $100 less than the new iPad mini.
