I have the opportunity to get an iPad from work, but I'd prefer a mini. I could hold out, however, if there was an a7 mini coming. I don't see any rumors about such a thing, given it was just released in November. Any word on the street on the next likely release date for an updated mini?

Well, the iPad mini with Retina display has an A7 processor in it. If you ordered that it would be a mini and have the latest and greatest.

According to Apple's site, the mini retina does NOT have an a7 processor. No 64-bit. It is instead a dual core a6X.

You must not be reading the same site as I am.

The iPad mini has the same CPU as the iPhone 5S, an A7 clocked at 1.3GHz (to the iPad Air's 1.4).

Could be you're looking at the column for the iPad with Retina Display (which is the 4th-gen full size model).

Ah, you are right. I did mis-read the columns.

Thanks. Wish I could kill the thread (out of embarrassment, lol).
