I'm surprised there are so many threads on the iPad Air. I'm guessing either a lot of people have never used the mini, or they can't wait for it to come out and are getting the iPad Air because it's available first. I sold my iPad 3 for the mini because the form factor really hit a sweet spot, and the weight made it more inviting to use. It could fit in my jeans and coat pocket. Holding it up with one hand was actually comfortable. Now that it has the same hardware as the regular iPad, but with better ppi, and still $100 cheaper, it's a no brainer. iPad mini retina > iPad Air. I suspect it will cannibalize iPad Air sales. I'm surprised Apple gave it the same hardware, considering the previous gen iPad Mini did very well with previous gen hardware. To me, having a 1.8" larger screen as the only incentive to buying the iPad Air is not enough. Now hopefully Apple will do the same thing with the Macbook Air, and give it a retina display and same hardware as the Pro, while maintaining it's lower price.
