I'm going to make this short and to the point since long posts are meaningless. I like the portability of a Mini, easy to carry around in my lab coat and commute. I don't exactly have a huge thing against a larger footprint of the iPad 3 versus the Mini, but portability is convenient not a need. BUT I have some Amazon credit which will make an iPad 3 16GB new come out to $230. What would you do? $230 vs $329.
