    Hi Guys,

    So I know the retina Mini is out but I have the option of getting a brand new iPad Mini first gen for 239, wondering if it's worth it for me to pay an extra 200$ for the retina? I basically use the iPad as a consumption device, reading, annotating pdf's, once in a while movies. Nothing crazy.

    Sorry if this isnt the right place to post this.

    Get retina. Reading is the one task that really highlights the screen difference, especially when text is relatively small.

    I hope you get some good advice,,,,, but it you look at the page full of messages, you will notice that TITLES are important. Try to make your next one descriptive.

    The retina mini is not released yet, it has only been announced

    Go for it! $200 more for "retina" isn't worth it.

    Not just screen. Skips over two generations of processors. Won't get left behind anytime soon.

    Get the first gen now, it will probably be a while until you can get your hands on a retina mini, at that time, sell the first gen for 200 bucks.
