    I about to get iPad mini mainly for my sketching as well as reading ebooks. Not really sure of screen sensitivity for sketching thought between mini and 4. Any advise?

    The sensitivity is the same, just a smaller screen.

    Having mini Wacom 4 tablet I don't really complain. Why would I be with mini iPad?

    There is basically little to no screen sensitivity in any of the iPads. This has been a huge sticking point with the newer android tablets etc. They love to hype how they, unlike iOS devices, have a Wacom digitizer that gets like 100 levels of pressure sensitivity. For something even close you'd have to use a stylus that provides control via bluetooth or such, like the newer Pogo

    I completely agree. Android tablets rule with their Wacom digitizers.

    That's a very good and valid reason to hype.

    If you're going to be sketching, it seems like a bigger screen would work much better. The mini's screen is probably too small to be effective.

    I just sold my new Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Quadcore tablet with the S-pen to buy this iPad 4. I really miss the S-Pen stylus! LOVE the iPad 4 much more but I cannot lie, that stylus was fantastic and the best for drawing apps. The pressure sensitivity was a beautiful thing...

    Anyway, the retina screen and larger screen is more enjoyable for sketching for sure
