    Thinking About Getting An iPad Mini

    I'm thinking about purchasing a 32GB iPad Mini (White) tomorrow. I've been apart of the Apple Family for a while. I like it because it's bigger than most 7'' tablets. Is it worth getting? I want a small portable tablet that I can put in my purse. I have currently have a HP Touchpad, but it's too big to bring with me everywhere. Any advice? Should I get it? All advice will be helpful!

    I have the iPad mini and I feel it would fit your needs quite well. It's small enough to fit in a large pocket, yet large enough to comfortably surf the internet and accommodate thumb typing.

    Hello NewbieUser,

    Welcome to the forum. My nephew happily carried his iPad mini with screen protector in the "cargo" pocket of his shorts.

    The mini is so thin and light which enhances its portability.

    Cheers

    Richard

    Wait a month longer for the new one at the same price.

    I'm thinking I want the 16GB instead of the 32GB because I have two tablets! I don't need 2 32GB tablets! I already haven't used all of the space on my HP Touchpad. What should I get 16GB or 32GB?

    Personally if I were you I would go for the 32, I have more than one iPad and they are all 32's and they are now all bursting at the seams but if you think you can manage with just 16 then maybe that's best for you......but I wouldn't skimp on storage capacity.

    This. plus, as far as storage goes, I would go all out and get 64 GB.

    I'd say 32GB is a must if you don't want to constantly be checking your free storage to make sure you don't fill it up. Remember a 16GB has about 12 usable gigs.

    You may think 16GB is enough but the iPad's abilities are always increasing and your needs will change over time. I originally got a 16GB and returned it for a 32GB. Sure enough I discovered some apps I really like that I hadn't anticipated, and I'm now sitting around 50% used. If I still had the 16GB I'd be in trouble.

    I'd also try to wait til the 2nd gen is announced. I absolutely love the current mini but you stand to get a bit more tablet for your money if you can wait it out a bit.

    More likely two to three months, if the rumors are to be believed. At any rate, it's very unlikely we'll be seeing new iPads at the new iPhone launch this month (also if rumors are to be believed). Still, it's only a week or two (probably), so a short wait won't hurt.
