Well I'm from Germany and I will visit Orlando(FL) in mid April. Currently i have an iPad Mini first gen but the processing speed and screen resolution drive me crazy combared to my 5S and even my much older 4S! As you may know, and $ prices are put almost to the same numeric value. But due to the good exchange rate i would save a lot of money! Now I don't know if it's still worth it in April.... A) How is the Airs processing power? B) Can't really decide between the Air and Mini retina....I replaced my old iPad1 with the first Mini originally... Could you guys tell me your thoughts on what YOU would do in my place?
