Question iPad Mini or 4th Gen iPad with retina?

Going to purchase and new iPad and was wondering if I should go with the Mini or the 4th gen with retina?

I'm leaning towards the full size 4th gen with retina.

What U think?

Many many times I have seen this thread and I only just recently joined.

I was debating between iPad 3 and Mini and picked Mini, the size and weight does it for me... the 4 is too heavy and bulky... I have been waiting for the mini for a while now and my prayers have been answered!

.

I purchased an iPad1 on launch day. An iPad3 on launch day.

I've used these tablets every day since I first bought them.

All the while waiting for Apple to bring the Mini to the table.

The Mini has made the first two obsolete (for me).

Get an iPad 4 with retina display, definitely worth it, imo. Still extremely portable.

Mini

I bought the iPad 1 on the first day and have used it daily since. I've been able to get by with my MBP and iPhones. Now, I happily have a Mini and it's great.

before you touch the mini, iPad 4 is the most value because it has current modern specs for a tablet, but once you touch the mini, you would want to sacrifice all the high specs for the ultra portability of the mini.

i seriously do not think that people in here should choose for you.

you should go to the store and try out both then decide. Because for me, Ipad mini is apple losing its innovation and following the market instead of leading it. The form factor is funny and the screen is a joke.

Still, many think the opposite, said it is the best device since....... i dont know.

You should just trust yourself.

Just get a mini. I use it way more than any iPad I have ever owned. It's so portable and easy to carry.

They really found the best form factor for iPad. I cannot wait till the iPad mini 2 comes out.

Full size iPad 4 is all you need right now.

Exactly....its a personal choice, you need to test both and see which will fit in with your lifestyle best.

Nobody on here can make the decision for you.
