I recently purchased an Ipad 3 off this girl who was getting rid of it because she claimed it was too heavy for her. She sold it to me for a steal at $270 still under warranty. I love it and would not sell it but I also love the design, feel and weight of the mini. My girlfriend said im wasting money that there is no need for a mini but I was thinking of using the mini to take with me wherever I go (I'm a personal trainer, grad student and teacher) and then use the Ipad 3 whenever I'm at home. I also have an older model 2009 13 inch macbook pro I use for school work. Is she right, am I just getting caught up in the apple hype? Do i steal a mini at a cheap price once the mini 2 comes out or spring for the 2 if the rumors are true if it has retina?
