Keep, no plan on upgrading on my end. Not until it's unusable.

Sell this one and upgrade if I can swing it for a cost difference of $75 or less. If not make a decision between:
-Doing nothing and waiting a few years or so.
-Selling the 4 and consolidating to one iPad

----------

That's also factoring in if its worth the upgrade. I'd only want to if it had retina and a better processor.

After buying ipad 1, ipad 3, and now the mini...think I'll keep it at least 2 yrs. before I upgrade it.

What about keeping it AND buying the mini 2? Where's that option?

It's not what "would" I do, it's what I will do...IF the next mini is Retina. Otherwise I'll keep it as I'm otherwise very happy w/ mini.

sell ASAP! The sooner the retina mini comes out the better!

kept my 3 and will wait till the ipad 5. I feel the reg size ipads are a must for at home viewing. Will never sell those.

I would sell mine a couple weeks before launch with cheap accessories bundled in for the same price I bought it for. Then i would buy the new one if it was retina.

No, not really. I don't care about the form factor or it being a collectible. I just want two iPads.

No if your #3 said "I'll get both," that would make sense. No, I don't consider this a collectible.

Not having retina doesn't really bother me. So it has to have some major updates in order for me to upgrade.

I sell it regardless how little they change it. Except for Cars, iMac & MacBook Air/Pro, I sell all my toys and upgrade.

My Samsung Galaxy Note II is my 14th upgrade since I signed a contract back in '09. I can't keep anything for more than 6 months. I only had the iPhone 5 for two weeks.

Keep the first gen mini for the wife and buy an upgrade. It'll still be a great ipad and with AppleCare+ it'll last a while

Keeping it, I can't tell the difference between non-retina on the iPad Mini and Retina on my iPhone 4 anyway. For me, everything look better on the iPad Mini than on the 4.

Hey...I bought the first gen iPad the day they were released back in 2010. Still have the unlimited data plan thru AT&T that I will transfer to my iPad mini LTE when it arrives.

What will I do when the iPad mini 2 comes out? Um...dunno.

I didn't upgrade my first gen when the iPad 2 came out. Or the iPad 3 with Retina. Or the iPad 4. Soooooo.....who knows.

The mini first gen may share the same fate with me as the first regular iPad did. I may just skip the upgrades for awhile. Or I may sell the first gen and upgrade. It depends.

Either way, I know I will be happy...cause I have enjoyed AND continue to enjoy my first gen iPad - which I am typing on right now!

;-)
