Hi I have had time with both the iPad 4 and mini. Because of my visual impairment, which makes me myopic (viewing very closely), I find the ipad mini to be blurry. Depnding on what I am doing, I may also have to enlarge text, pinch or move. The Ipad 4 is MUCH clearer. I am more likely to be able to see the whole layout with a minimum amount of hand gestures. What I am bothered with is the weight. My pad and quill case adds to the wight. It did also add to the weight of the mini when I tried and returned that. I am having second thoughts about the viability of purchasing the mini again. What would be ideal is to have the iPad 4 for in-home use and the mini for less frequent use out of the house. However, I can only afford one device. Has anyone faced similar issues? The iPad 4 is easier for me to view, but much heavier. What might you select if you had to choose between them?
