    No way for me.....
    Way to small of screen to do anything real serious. I will never part with my iPad 4 for a smaller screen.
    I need a stylus on my iPad 4 to do a lot of things so the iPad mini is out of the question.

    You guys make the iPad 4 (9.7") sound like its a 55" wide screen!
    It's only 1.8" diagonal difference...

    It the weight, not the screen size. I still use my iPad 3 every day. But with the mini, I'm using it at times like right now. Using the split keyboard and hold it inches from my face. With the 3, this would be very uncomfortable.

    I still need the mini to have a reinstall screen though, so I can abandon the regular iPad without that. And really, I'll keep using my iPad 3 until it dies. No need to get rid of it. But the mini is a portable wonder. I'm lucky that I get to own both.

    That you are for sure.....

    Like you, I can see it as an addition but not a replacement......but, I just can't justify the price for the limited use I would have.
    I absolutely love my iPad 4 for the purposes I use it for.

    Obviously sales numbers show the Mini is very popular.....but it's just not for me.
    Sure is nice to have the luxury of various choices to meet each persons needs.

    Well, be happy because the iPad 4 is the best tablet on the planet, bar none.

    I bought both on release day. The iPad 4 is for in bed,reading news and watching movies. The mini is for out and about and listening to music. I slide it under my pillow, lol. Both very handy. As for screen, I can't see a difference.
