I don't think anyone is going to say that the non retina mini renders PDFs better then the retina iPad 4 (though I didn't read through the entire thread).

I prefer my mini for reading do to its size, and portability (fits in my coat pocket)

I have the 3 and love it for textbooks and PDFs. I have Big Robbins on Inkling and several others in the Kindle app. I use GoodReader and NotesPlus for PDF reading and marking up respectively.

I won't miss the 3 that much and once the Mini retina version comes out I'll be switching immediately.
Med School. That's why it would fit nicely in a white coat pocket.

Good deal. Just wanted inquire because you stated "graduate school" rather than med school and you KNOW how many types of schools are "white coat happy" these days (i.e. - white coats sadly no longer signify just med school or physicians). Won't be surprised if/when they start having white coat ceremonies at rad tech programs.

Alright, back on topic.

Haha totally said the same thing yesterday and got some nasty looks from PC people.

I think the iPad mini 32gb + cellular is the plan.

The whole "white coat for everyone" will come crashing down in a few years.

I went with 16gb wifi. 2 reasons - 1) I have an iPad 3 16gb and PLENTY of room for everything I need (including Big Robbins in Inkling, etc). 2) I'm in Wifi literally everywhere I go. I've thought a lot about getting an LTE version, but I have that on my iPhone 5 and can just hotspot if/when I ever need to.

Will be upgrading to the retina mini the very moment it comes out though.

Best of luck in your studies.
