    Which do you prefer - the ipad or ipad mini form factor, ignoring weight and size?

    Isn't the weight and size a big part of the form factor? Or are you talking about the bezel and edges?

    Bezel - mini since I never use portrait mode anyway.

    Screen size - iPad...I don't mind the weight

    Ipad mini style!

    I love how the form factor matches the iPhone 5. Would be great to have full size iPad with mini styling too. I love the mini!!

    Its kind of difficult to say which form factor you prefer when you want us to ignore the form factor metrics, i.e., weight and size. What other factors would you want us to comment on then :confused:

    I chose the mini because its smaller then the iPad. I wanted a 7" tablet and I was in the market for this, a Kindle or a Nexus 7. Being enmeshed in the apple eco system this was a better option for me and I have no regrets.

    He's not talking about the weight or size, simply the bezel style.

    It looks like the mini may shortly be revised to include the display the original should have had.

    On this rumor alone I'm very tempted to dump my mini ver 1.0 and be prepared to grab version 2 the moment it's available.

    These could go into back order status fast.

    iPad Mini 2 rumours emerge

    You really should have said "bezel" then. "Form factor" != "bezel". Form factor is all about weight and size.

    Personally I want the bezel as I read with my iPad; however an iPad mini bezel wouldn't kill me
