Whether or not to get an iPad mini is completely subjective, but it seems like I am a perfect candidate for one. It's still a lot of money, though, so I thought I'd throw this out there to see what you guys think. Here is my current setup: My wife and I ditched our iPhones and have dumb phones, I am using a 6 year-old iPod video for music, an iPad 1, Macbook Pro, and PC laptop for work. I didn't think I'd be interested in a mini, but I travel 2 months out of the year and really missed having an "internet everywhere" and GPS device. I also often would leave my laptop at home and travel only with my iPad 1, which has slowed down and is a bit big and cumbersome. I also need a Facetime camera to chat with the wife and kids while I'm away and the rear camera would be used as well because, again, no iPhone. So I'm thinking a white 32 GB wifi/LTE iPad mini would replace my old iPhone for data, the iPad 1, iPod, and possibly my laptop when I travel. My issue is that it's still $600 for that and a smart cover and that would cover the cost of a 32 GB wifi only iPad 4, which may be a bit more future proof. I also have some reservations about the screen/internal specs but the iPad mini will be the fastest iOS device I own and, since ditching my iPhone 4S, I don't have a single retina device. So my reservations seem silly to me. I LOVE the form factor and weight of the mini (played around with one at Best Buy). Thoughts? I already sold my iPad 1 16gb wifi for $220.
