I've been thinking about getting an ipad mini for med school for a while and i've already pre-ordered it, but I am starting to think that a regular ipad might be better. I'm mostly going to be using it during lectures to take notes/annotate slides, to view ebooks and just general studying. however, I really like the portability of the ipad mini and would love to be able to just pull out my ipad and study on my ride on the subway. If anyone has used the normal ipad for school and studying, would you consider the ipad mini to be a better choice? I really can't decide and I would love to get some feedback.
