    There identical internally so it's your choice on screen size.

    I think you get more bang for your buck with the Air, over the mini. The biggest draw for the Mini is its form factor. If you want a smaller tablet then the Mini is your best choice.

    Putting on my moderator hat, I moved this thread to the iPad forum to maximize the exposure to this thread.

    True for last year's models, but not the Air 2/Mini 3, right?

    I think it depends largely on what your main use will be. So how are you planning to use your new iPad?

    If you're using it more at home than out and about then get the Air. The portability advantage of the iPad Mini isn't that big if you're not taking it around very much.

    I know! Just making it explicit!

    It does sound like the Air or Air 2 would be a better choice around the house.
