Well, you type like your 3 and talk like your 5. Might wanna work on that.

So grabbing your other iPad (with just a Mini attached) isn't? If grabbing it and holding onto it is a pain, you need to go to the gym.

shut up bro. english is not my native language, so please bear with it.

i didn't say it's a pain, but when u dont use a bag, holding a full sized ipad for a long time is really a hassle, but not the mini. which is smaller in footprint and muh much more lighter.

oh and yeah, at least i know the difference between you're and your.

so you're the one who types like a baby.

My apologies. I forgot a comma and an e, you forgot 2nd grade basics in spelling.

If English is not your main language, I suggest you don't get used to using "u", "i", etc as it leaves an unprofessional appearance of you.

Tried the mini today at Best Buy.

It was nice, but the non Retina display was too obvious.

Sorry, I must interject. It's called a ******** apostrophe, not a comma.

And we're on an Internet forum. Who gives a rat's ass about professionalism? Seriously, get off your high horse.

So like the mini: could never go back holding a heavy and big new ipad with is low bad battery life. Hope it takes a couple if years before they put a retina display in it so battery life is guaranteed.

Not a comma, apostrophe. Get your 2nd grade grammar in check I bet he speaks English better than you speak another language.

OK, I learned a lesson of american's culture about how to look professional on the internet forum. you have to use capital "I" to write I as in I Am, and you can't use "u" as in "You are awesome".

thank you..

You've learned another lesson of American culture: sarcasm. Congratulations, you're a natural!

yeah i agree.

when i looked at the Mini compared to an iPad Retina, it looked like i was staring at a Lenovo X120e screen.
now for someone like my girlfriend who has never owned a tablet and wanted something smaller and light, the Mini is great. so that's what i bought her.

the iPad 2 has turned into a server's tray at this point. $399 is a scam. just buy it refurb for $319

I'm thinking of doing the same.
How is your screen quality?
I've heard there are issues with the iPad 4's screen bleeding and also something about video. This is kind of holding me back since the screen on my 3 is perfect.

I would love to discuss any known issues with the Apple employee, but they also play dumb.

The "I cannot carry the iPad" comments are crazy. iPad is smaller than a standard paper tablet! It's about like carrying a professional planner or hardback book. People carry such things all day, every day.

Ah yes, but what will you do if there is no Spring 2013 refresh?

I'd love to run a Mini with LTE but my aging eyes (53) really need a retina display. My iPad 4 is without fault in every way other than Verizon gouging for LTE service. At least I paid full price for my iPhone 5 so I have unlimited LTE on that. Planning on picking up a retina 13" MBP so I will have phone tablet and laptop all retina.

If you are into reading comics on a tablet you should check out Andy Inhaktos blog.

They can't change the laws of physics. No way to put a retina display in there for awhile unless they have a much thicker device with shorter battery life. I could personally live with that but I doubt Apple will make those sacrifices. It would also eat into their already slimmer than normal profit margin on the Mini.

I'm Using mercury browser and it makes a huge difference. so much sharper than safari. Bc of this, I'm going to keep my mini until retina display comes out.

I agree! The extra little bit of weight and size are well worth the trade off compared to the screen on that other device.... I am so glad I returned mine and got the 4, I loved it as soon as i turned it. While I had the other I was constantly trying to make myself like it but couldn't...

Nope. More than offset by weight, size and price of the Mini.

It's great you got an iPad 4, but why be a complete condescending douche about the iPad Mini?

Laughable? - That statement actually makes me laugh. I have a Retina MBP 15, a 4S and an iPad 3. The mini screen is obviously not Retina, but my first impression was what the hell is wrong with people? How insecure are you about preference that you must pound specs into your own head to justify a purchase? The screen is completely adequate - not amazing - but functional. At no point did I think it would be useless.

As for future proofing...it's an Apple product. The mini will work, and work well for 2-3 years - I will no doubt upgrade by then because I can afford 300-500 every 2 years for a device I'll use daily. If you dont want to upgrade every few years, a tablet probably isn't a device for you...Hell even tech in general is something you should avoid. The days of owning products for 5-6 years is sadly coming to an end.

In response to speed and the A5 - it is now the most popular/used apple chip. If you think apps will not be optimized with the largest user demographic in mind, you are sorely mistaken. Someday the A6/A6X will be King, until then, you live in a world of the A5 (you will still get way better performance).
