    Keep iPad Mini?

    I just sold my iPad 1 and bought the Mini.. I am very temped to go buy the iPad 4 as well and keep both.. the iPad 4 for at home and in bed and the Mini for out and about.. what's your take?.. I like both very well.. but I do miss the big screen on the iPad when at home on the couch and in bed.. the Mini is so awesome I hate to ditch it.. has anyone had this problem or decision to make?

    If you can afford both, why not. I find watching video on a larger screen is certainly better.

    I find it invaluable to be able to refer to one device while using the other. In my case the second device is an iPhone, but I wouldn't say no to a mini.

    I have the 3 and the mini. My intent was the same as yours, using the mini on the go and the 3 for home. Turns out I spend all my time on the mini anyway, home or away, and because of that, whenever I use the iPad 3 it feels heavy and way too big to me. I'm planning on getting a wall mount for my iPad 3, and using it as a picture frame or something of the sort.

    For me, two iPads just doesn't work out, I have a lot of data that isn't easily synced across the two and it bothers me. Personally I love the mini, and awaiting a future version with a retina display. But if you want something from iPad 4 that isn't satisfying on the mini, and if you have the money, it may benefit you to get a a full sized iPad also.

    I know this is a strange question, but how does one use an iPad in bed? I have zero concept of that. Certainly. One doesn't hold it, right?

    Hi. Good ? But in bed. You get comfy with pillows to prop your head up to a 45 degree or so angle and rest the iPad on top of the covers between your belly bottom and your lower rib cage. LOL Works great and that way you are not holding up any weight.
    Doug. . Try it and let me know if you like

    Yes the weight of the Mini makes it hard to use anything else. I love the Mini more each day. Never thought I would.

    Yes. I need to go pick up iPad 4 or I will never be satisfied. I have a big addiction problem. . I need to have both as well.
    Doug ... You just convinced me.

    I'll hold it if not using it long. Otherwise, I use stands. This is my favorite:

    Amazon.com: MTM INC Levo Deluxe eBook and iPad Holder Floor Stand: Kindle Store

    Wish it were more attractive, but it works well, which is the most important thing to me.
