    Hello Macrumors,

    I have been thinking about getting an iPad Mini /w Retina for about a month now. My wife and I are having a baby that is due in middle of April. We have decided that when the baby is around we are not watching TV. So when i am laying in bed I want to be able to watch the TV show that i have download the night before (With headphones of course). My question is how do you find the iPad mini for watching TV shows via Plex? Is the screen too small?

    Thanks
    GrumpyGeek

    I think its ok, though I wouldn't want to do it night in and night out. I enjoyed watching movies and stuff on my rMini but I don't use it as a replacement for a TV.

    My advise, if you're going to to go the route of watching TV day in and day out on a tablet, why not just keep the TV?

    +1 its do able, but I wouldn't want to do it all the time. I'd probably also prefer to have an air if its main use will just be in bed to watch tv/movies on it

    It should be fine for watching movies/TV shows. I do it occasionally in bed on my iPad Mini (1st Gen) as well as sometimes watching ESPN on it since I don't keep a TV in the bedroom.
