Actually you do [need a bag]. I don't know what "most guys / gals" you are referring to. I don't know a single person who carries their iPad (mini or otherwise) in their pocket on a regular basis. Especially now that the summer time is almost here - last thing people want to do is wear cargo pants or hoodies in 80-degree weather just to fit their iPads in.

I am perfectly chilled.. You on the other hand, not so much.. Of course, everyone's posts on here are just their opinions - that's why it's called a public Internet forum. And I will post here as much as I want to, but thanks for your input.

They make cargo shorts! I, too, take mine everywhere. It's an easy fit...usually I put mine in the front 'hip' pocket of my cargo pants, shorts or inside pocket on my vest or jacket pocket. Different strokes....but I agree with him and your 'tone'. Even now...admission of it being a public, opinion based Internet forum, you're still coming across as condescending. Saying you don't know anyone that carries an iPad mini everywhere is irrelevant. Folks do. Period. That's a simple fact after reading through this thread

While its 'for you' is a decision you have to make, and it sounds as you've done that. As has you entourage of friends, family and people you know.

Ya know. Different strokes

Since I'm secure in my manhood I don't have an issue with a shoulder bag. I also will put my Mini in my cargo shorts side pockets; I just need to find some with slightly deeper pockets as the top of my Mini still sticks out a little.

I take mine almost everywhere. I only really leave it at home when I am positive I won't use it. It's a lot more portable, IMO, than previous models. It fits in most of my purses.

Everyone's needs are different. You can always return it if you don't think it suits you.

I take my ipad and Mac air and iPhone everywhere I go because have a small briefcase that is light and carries these and the accessories I need like my hand scanner and my jambox, but if I want to go light, I'll leave the briefcase in the car and hand carry the mini or slip it into my suit jacket pocket.

It fits in most other sweatshirt or pants pockets and it isn't bad to carry in my hand with my phone either.

I find I'm never without it.

Plus I heard from a source that zagg is coming out with a thin keyboard case for the mini that will let you adjust the angle the mini is held when typing. I'll get that when it comes out, and it'll make the portable device that much more powerful for me.

Before the iPad mini came out, I used to take the full-size iPad almost everywhere I went. Now that I have a mini, of course I take it almost everywhere I go. I do usually carry a bag with me, which was the case even before I had iPads, but I did get a small bag just for those times when I wanted to just carry the iPad.

In other words, whether iPads are an everywhere device depends to some extent on how badly you want to take them with you. If you want them everywhere, you make the investment necessary (like buy a bag, and put up with the extra weight), so you can have it with you. If you aren't so into having it with you, well, you'll leave it at home.
