i was going to hang on until March next year for a new Pro Mini. We hope. But current rumours dissmiss this, so...... Just decided to purchased (from john lewis online) a mini 4 to compliment my 12.9 Pro. I've a vacation coming up in a couple of weeks and could do with the portability and camera of the mini4. I know it's still a most competent tablet and should be for a few seasons to come too. So, as it's only a travel device, thought i couldnt wait and jumped in Also purchased a ReGear Pro stylus to go with it (on sracer's recommendation, cheers buddy ). I'm lost these days without my Pencil in my hand, so hopefully this will be the next best solution. On hindsight if a new 7.9 incher is released this coming Spring i dont think i'd worry too much. It is only a secondary device for me anyway. Hurry up mr postie!!!!!
