    I have the mini and love it, however I went to best buy and played with the ipad 4 and immediately noticed when cruising the internet it was easier to read text without having the zoom. Text is definately clearer, so I compared the size of both and really the ipad 4 isnt that much bigger. Now i have a week to decide whether to trade or not...Im leaning towards switching but would like some opinions...

    I agree the iPad mini is a cute toy but if your really going to use it a lot, using the iPad4 really makes it better.

    The mini is no more a toy than is the iPad 4, but if you like the 4 better, get it. Your device. Please yourself.

    I disagree, I had the iPad 3 and mini, and the one I use a lot is the mini. Actually ended up selling my iPad 3 yesterday because I never used it.

    But regarding the topic. What do you use your iPad for? And where do you use it? The mini is a lot easier to carry around because its smaller and lighter, but the iPad 4 has more processing power, so games do run better, and the retina display which makes everything look so sharp and clear. So the choice depends on what you do/want more

    I mainly use it for cruising the net and playing games when on the go...now Im finding that I am on the ipad more at home instead of using my computer. I read ALOT, mostly websites i frequent and I will watch an occasional movie on it. About the only difference Ive noticed between the two that has kinda swayed me is the text clarity. Speed wise they feel almost the same during regular usage to me.

    Only you can decide based on your prefereances and how your going to use the device........
    Play with both at an Apple store then decide.

    I personally can't use the Mini for any amount of time without getting frustrated.........links and text are just to small to use for me.
    Having to constantly expand the size of the page gets old and is cumbersome.

    The older you get the more size matters.......... :rolleyes:

    One item that Apple has missed is the ability, to use a pen type device to quickly take notes. Samsung has this item in there Galaxy 10.1 note, and it has been a really big success story for them. I would hope to see this added to the new iPads.

    There are plenty of free and paid note apps. Penultimate is my favorite. But, i was referring to styli (the pen).
