I have had every ipad upgrading one to the next. My last one was the iPad mini. I sold it because the retina display I had on my iPad 3/4 was really missed. I moved to the new Nexus 7. I vowed as son as Apple came with a retina mini I was going back. After todays release, I'm a bit torn on whether to get the Air or the mini. Mainly because after watching actual vids of the Air, it's as light as the OG mini and as thin. This means the fatigue aspect of using the IP4 for a long time would be gone. Also, the fact it's up $70. Next I want a new device next Friday...who knows when the mini will be released.
