Swapped my full-size for a mini due to the weight and can't wait to switch back. The difference in screen real estate is just too great. The full size iPad feels like a lightweight computing device whereas the mini feels more like a 7" iPhone which surprisingly is not enough of a difference to make me stop using the iPhone 5 and pull out the mini most of the time.

I've had a 3 since they came out and bought a mini last winter to compare them. I figured I would use both for a while then sell whichever one sat idle the most. The mini is really fun and portable but after the first week I found myself choosing the 3 more often. Purely a matter of fitting my use patterns better - I do a lot of work related stuff on my iPad and prefer the bigger screen for taking notes, reviewing/editing docs, browsing text heavy web sites etc. Even the things that I enjoyed doing on the mini (games and ebooks) I could do just as happily on the 3. The size/weight difference doesn't stop me from taking the 3 pretty much everywhere. If I need to travel really light I rely on my phone instead.

So full size for me. And when the smaller, lighter 5th gen comes out I'll have the best of both worlds.

Loving my Mini, I've been carrying it everywhere with me. No use for the full-size iPad.
