So I don't actually have an iPad, but I used my mom's enough to know what it's all about. So I ask users of the iPad mini and those who used the iPad 2, Do you notice that the screen is easier to read on the iPad mini or harder? Like, will I notice the non-retina quality? Is it still just as easy to type in landscape for papers on Pages with it? And finally, I will be using it mainly for school but also at home and MAYBE movies on the go. Do you think I would need the 4G model or tethering with my iPhone (via tetherme on cydia) would be fine? Like when at a random place, would you be motivated to connect it to your hotspot or just pull it out but pay the extra $130?
