For my self, I have an iPad 3 and a mini. I plan to get the retina mini when it is released. At that time I will sell the mini. I'm thinking I should just sell the 3 as well. I kept it to enjoy movies etc with the retina screen but I hardly use it. It seems the new mini will fill both needs. I just bet as soon as I sell it that I'll wish I had it back. Any reason to keep an iPad 3 if you have a retina mini? ---------- Of course once I posted... I thought of a downside.... My husband occasionally takes my iPad 3 with him on business trips. He might miss being able to do that. He loves the battery life on airplanes compared to his laptop. If he has lots of reading to do... Then he puts in the info in drop box and then downloads it to the iPad 3 before he leaves. Maybe I should ask him first.
