Hello folks, First, I want to express my appreciation in advance. I currently own macbook air 11 inch (2013) and macbook pro 13 (2012) with iPad 4. My question, or advice/opinion I am seeking is this. I would very LIGHT work on the iPad -- reading pdf files on GoodNotes and using iBooks. I am looking to give my iPad 4 and getting a iPad mini (or mini w/ retina). I know that the original mini at 299 is tempting; but on the flip side, mini w/ retina is only 100 more with the new processor and retina display. But, since I am not looking to do intensive work on the iPad, I feel that the original mini would do just fine. But I also know that it isn't as future-proof as the A7 chip... So, that is my dilemma. For the purpose of my needs with the iPad, and a decision to get the mini, which mini should I get? Oh and by the way, considering the 16 inch wifi only version for either. All your criticisms, feedback, suggestions...etc. are welcome! Please share! Thanks!!
