Howdy and sorry for yet another iPad Mini thread. I had the original iPad but couldn't justify the price-usage ratio at that time. It was a cool device but too expensive to be used so rarely I used it. But now as iPad as a product has matured a little and the Mini is here I'm interested again. Anyway. I'm just thinking the lifespan of the Mini.. iPad 2 is still around, but probably not for too long. The specs in Mini are similar to iPad 2. So no retina, but more importantly the processor etc lacks compared to the iPad 3/4. I don't really see any problem with the screen or the speed of iPad Mini, it looks and feels quite great. But what worries me is the specs in the long run. - How long developers will continue to support iPad Minis inferior specs compared to the bigger brothers? The screen, processor, memory etc. I don't play any fancy games on my iPad (or plan to play), but I would like to play the upcoming new point and click games (like Broken Sword and Double Fine Adventure etc.). Do you see Mini users having any problems with the apps (games and others) or new iOS versions? How is the original iPad working today? That could be a good indicator I guess.. So what do you think? Is the Mini going to be ok for 2-3 years and still usable (with upcoming apps)? Or should I wait for the next version? I'm in no rush, but I don't feel that the next one with Retina gives me much more in that regard, only thinking about the future support. Oh..And one more thing: Black or white? How durable is the black?
