    I got a mini and I want to trade for a bigger ipad 2 or 3, is this a good deal straight through or do I have to add on cash?

    There are a few things to consider such as increased weight, lower ppi (on ipad 2) and no siri on ipad 2, plus no lighting port (to me this is irrelevant as an owner of an ipad 2 and iphone 4s).

    Id say even tough they are technically the same, the mini is a better tablet, but the ipad 2 has an awesome display size. Your choice of size really

    The main thing really is the light port, I charge my 5 and mini with the same charger so the older 30pin cable will be a little issue.

    But the size is really it for me, I like the mini and it's cool but for mostly reading kindle ebooks and pdf the size is just better.

    Also want one of these.

    To answer your question, you'd need to look at comparable prices on craigslist and eBay, and possibly on trade-in sites such as Nextworth. In my opinion, you might have to add $50 to the iPad mini to trade for a similar spec iPad 2, and perhaps $75 - $100 to trade for a similar spec iPad 3. Of course if the other person is really motivated, you may not need to...

    Because the Mini is desirable right now, you should able to swap for a 3 no problem. Maybe even a 4 if you add some money to the deal.

    Something to remember is that the iPad 2 & 3 will not have AirDrop in iOS 7.

    Call me crazy, but from the looks of it you can just turn it 'upside down' and the writing pad will be on the left. You can slide the pad out and reinsert it at the top.
