    I have a LTE ipad 3 from work and an LTE mini on order. I got a mini wifi on friday just to try it out to see if I wanted to proceed with the LTE one.

    Haven't picked up the iPad 3 since I got the mini. I will be returning it to my employer as the mini will travel much easier and just works for me better.

    Questions for you guys:
    Is this a little overkill?
    When would you choose the smaller iPad over the bigger one?
    When you go out? But then doesn't your iPhones/smartphones do your going out surfing?
    When you are at home and you have 3 iPads, which one would you choose to use?
    Does your family even need to turn on a computer to surf the net now?

    And when you go out, you are just driving right? So when would you really get to use it? If you take transit, it could make sense, but I think the iPhone fills that niche.

    These questions don't have logical/rational answers, so not sure what you are expecting to hear. :)

    I have a 32GB 3 and a 16GB mini. Not sure if I'm keeping the 3 yet or not. I'm keeping the Mini, although I may swap it for an LTE model.

    I'm with a couple of the above, curious to know what you guys are using your ipads for if you have multiple?
    When do you reach for an iPad 3/4 vs. iPad Mini?

    I suppose "love" cannot be explained..

    I was just curious as I haven't played with the mini yet, but want to know if I would use both devices..

    I have an iPad 3 and a mini. I'm not ready to get rid of the 3 yet, mainly because of the unlimited data I still have on it and its not worth as much resale as it did before 4 came out.

    Have an iPad 3 LTE 64 GB, a Nexus 7 and just picked up a iPad Mini 64 GB. Test driving the Mini for a few reasons: may pick a couple up for my kids, may just replace my iPad 3 outright (love it but seems huge now and I have a desktop and MBA at home), may get one for my Mom.

    FWIW, I spent a bunch of time comparing my current iPad 3 to both a Mini and an iPad 4 in the Apple store today--ran the same apps side by side and while I never felt the iPad 3 felt slow, the new iPad 4 is noticeably faster, especially in more intensive apps (games, iPhoto, iMovie, iWorks) and the iPad Mini even seemed to launch apps a touch quicker.

    Ideally, I'll replace the iPad 3 with the Mini but if I decide to go that route, I'll return this wifi only model and pick up an LTE version.

    I definitely will be picking up a wifi model for the house, and gonna keep my full sized 3, because I use it for work.

    Last night was the first time I'd picked up our iPad 2 since getting the mini on Saturday. And then, the reason was because the mini was charging.

    Can see us off loading the 2 and when/if a Retina mini comes out we'll buy that to go with our current new mini.

    I have ipad 1st Generation & iPad mini i cannot believe how slow my iPad 1st generation is compared to the mini for doing things.I love the fact that the mini is compact and that it fits in a jacket pocket when you are traveling around the place a lot better then a regular size iPad well i think so personally each to there own what ones prefers of coarse.I will use the mini when i'am out and about but when i'am home i be using the iPad 1st generation for watching Tv,Tv Series,Movies.Over the last few days i just think the mini is just not quite there to watch movies on the move personally i prefer the 9'7 inch iPad for that sort of thing but anything esle the mini is a perfect.I'am hoping next year in the new iPad that they make the new iPad with a bigger screen just like they did with the iPhone5.Then i be retiring the iPad 1st generation for good then using the latest one for purely just for Media uses only.

    You must have big pockets. Our mini is nowhere near small enough to fit in any of our pockets.
