I ordered my iPad 4th gen as soon as it was available online. I know I will love the retina display and the new Dual-core A6X with quad-core graphics. Last night I was reading the reviews and it looks that beside the retina display most of the reviewers are very happy with the new ipad mini. Coming from an iPad 2 I may not notice something that it is a deal breaker for me (regarding the retina display). I am not asking what should I do. I am aware it is a matter of a personal preference. But I am really curious about what you guys and girls think. I will go to the Apple store and "play" with both. Then I will decide. If I decide to get the mini then I will exchange it before opening the Ipad 4 box. Thank you for your opinion.
