I'm really liking the idea of upgrading my air 1 to the mini 4 (instead of the air 2) this Christmas. My main reasoning here is, I already have the bigger screen of my 13 inch MacBook Air. So doesn't it make more sense to have the mini 4 instead of the air? I have an iPhone 6 which I obviously take with me everywhere, but I have found myself not taking the air as many places as I did the mini, and the places I do take it, it feels more like a chore to carry around, simply because of that larger for, factor, (I liked being able to slip my old mini 1 into my pockets!); also the typing experience is not as comfortable on the air. I use my iPad for school as I have my textbooks on them; I'm homeschooled and like to do school outside and often do my reading sitting on a swing outside. I like the iPad to be versatile so I can use it for school in many different situations. So I was wondering what others thought about using the iPad alongside a MacBook. I can easily use my MBA 13 for anything when I want a big screen; thus does it make more sense to be more portable, with the mini?
