Like so many, I love the idea of the mini. I love the size so much! It fits in a purse so beautifully, it is so light and it seems like it picks up where my iPhone's usefulness drops off.. It's size just makes it so portable and so I'd take it everywhere. I don't use my iPad 3 for super intensive tasks so the chip and memory are probably an okay compromise. The screen isn't terrible but it isn't great. I wish I could keep them both but I really can't right now. The iPad 3 seems so big and clunky now even though it seems so svelte compared to my MacBook. I've always thought the iPad was perfect. But will I miss the iPad for streaming movies? I love watching movies on it in bed. Has anyone felt the screen is too small for that? Any other thoughts on screen size where the mini is too small? For the record, I have an iMac and a MacBook. I need to sell the MacBook since I never use it. I only use my iMac for storing photos and for my oldests homework occasionally. I do everything else on my iPhone and iPad.
