I'm thinking of selling my iPad 3 and my wife's Nook for two iPad minis. If you sold your iPad 3 with Retina for an iPad mini, please tell me about your experience here? I am attracted to the portability, but didn't care for the screen (I have an iPhone 5 and rMBP in addition to the 3), but I connect my MBP to an external Playstation monitor when I'm home through HDMI, and I still like the monitor despite being non-retina. I also use my father's iPad 1 on occasion, and don't mind the screen. Was "downgrading" the screen a big tradeoff for you? Sorry if this is a repeat thread.
