I decided to get the 4,bought it from my local best buy which had stock.
Got the 16 gb white and sold the mini on ebay,yea I could of returned it,but because they are selling for higher prices on ebay I actually made $50 more dollars than what I paid for it.
So overall a win win situation.
I might get it again in the future because I really did love the size and lightness of it.
For those asking if I really use my ipad for a main computer,yes I do.
I have an older macbook I keep larger files on,but it's my ipad I use all the time.
Although I am very interested in the new 13" retina now

Benchmark info means absolutely nothing!!!!

People who sold their full sized retina ipad for a mini would be insane. Many of which used as PC and Mini screen is smaller, less clear. If you want portable, get Ipod touch or kindle whatever at 199usd, i would understand if you are coming from Ipad or Ipad 2 but from Retina Pad, its just insane.

That's why I couldn't keep it,yea I loved it's portability but it was like taking a step backwards in technology.
Just picked up the 4,so far loving it!

Hey smarty pants, what do those numbers mean EXACTLY?

Well then I do sincerely apologize. Furthermore, I respect you a great deal that you are productively working instead of simply retiring on disability.

I don't bother with little typos and slight mistakes; we all make them. Nevertheless, I feel it is worthwhile to fight for good communication. You are an unfortunate victim of collateral damage that I regret.

I don't see the movie "Idiocracy" as a comedy, I take it as a warning!

I can't imagine using any iPad, retina or not, as my main computer.

Funny because it has been my main computer for the last four months or so. I'm getting along fine with this. It works for my workflow, but I understand it won't for all people.
