    Air all the way. Don't even consider the 4th gen. I bought the Retina mini and the iPad Air, and couldn't be happier. Both of the new iPad's just completely blow away all previous versions.

    I too am a storage whore, but be honest with yourself. What the hell are you going to do with 128GB of storage? I bought a 128GB iPad Air and I regret it. It's just a waste. For me, 64GB is the sweet spot.

    With that being said, I still think your choice is definitely iPad Air all the way, despite the storage difference. The form factor alone is worth the upgrade, not to mention the performance gains.

    What about the Retina mini? That's actually my favorite iOS device of all time at this point. IMO it's just about perfect.

    Same here, Air is just not Apple, flimsy built, many screen issues, I'll wait for iPad Pro

    Personally, I'd go with the 128GB model because for me, the extra storage is more important than Air's smaller, lighter form factor. Right now, I only have 22GB free space on my 128GB iPad. Of course, priorities differ from person to person so I can't really tell you which one is the better choice for you.

    I am sorry I was thinking an iPad Pro with 13 inches screen size? You probably mean iPad Air 2? :apple:

    No they dont, iPad air is flawed by massive light bleeding and yellow screen syndrome. Stick to your ipad 4 for as long as you can, it's perfect.

    Don't let anyone fool you, the iPad Air is better in all ways and is more future proof. If storage is more important than anything else, go with the 4. All other reasons point towards the air.

    No it isn't. Some defective models exist, but that could as easily happen to iPad 4s. The iPad 4 wasn't blessed with a magical defect free production run.

    More than 1GB RAM would make it "future proof"

    So no ones fooling anybody except apple with its 64bit hoop-la on 1GB RAM. Other than weight and looks the iPad 4 is just as future proof as the Air.

    I'm sorry, but I disagree. So does every major tech site. Andantech mentions the memory limitations but doesn't make near as big a deal about it as people in this forum. The processor and gpu is phenomenal.
