I got a good deal on a 16gb Mini at Best Buy for $300 total. I got another good deal on a 32gb iPad 4 for $450 on Amazon. Is the full-sized iPad worth the extra cash? I haven't had an iPad in a while, but i plan on letting my 4-year-old use this as well and I can't keep both Seems that the full-sized iPad basically is a better screen, more powerful, but thicker and heavier. I'll tell you what I would like to do (coming from Nexus 7). I like to bring the tablet to church to use as my Bible during sermons and class and for note taking. I'd like to browse the web, edit a few photos when there's a need, play popular games (nothing 3D heavy)...I use all the Google apps (Gmail, Now, etc) I assume it'll be the same on both.
