As the title already says, I'm looking to take the leap into the tablet world. I'm a Macbook pro owner, and it's about three years old. I owned an Iphone 3gs back when it was actually current, so I have some experience with Apple products and the ecosystem. In saying this,I'll get to the point. I'm looking at purchasing a mini, or the 4, and considering maybe the 3 as well. I'm looking for a little advice on what might be my best bet, as a college student. Use will probably range from note taking, to your usual play. Textbooks are also an important factor, but I'm really just trying to figure out which one suits my needs best. I had the chance to handle the mini last night, and I like it, but I'd like to hear a little bit more about it. I've not had a chance to see the 4, but I'm sure it's a beauty. The three comes into play because, I'm a college student, and I'm reluctant to part with $500. I know there can be some issues with overheating (at least thats what I've heard) and it's a little suspicious that the 3's dropped from the face of apple with the exception of the refurbs, which is appealing in its own right. So, am I right in considering the 3 at all, or is it looking like it will become unsupported in the near future? Or theres the question of waiting till March, to see if these rumors hold any merit. It's these kinds of questions that have me doing circles, so any kind of help would be appreciated!
