    According to new figures from NPD Display Search, reported on by AppleInsider, it looks like 2013 is set to be the year when the iPad mini becomes Apple’s main tablet, ahead of the full-sized iPad. NPD Display Search says that it has heard that Apple intends to ship 55 million iPad minis in 2013, and just 33 million regular iPads. As AppleInsider notes, if accurate, this would represent a big shift from Apple away from what was believed to be the company’s plan back in December of 40 million iPad minis shipped and 60 million regular iPads. And aside from that breakdown, also interesting is the fact that the combined figure of 88 million iPad shipped would be a big improvement on 2012, when Apple sold 58.31 million iPads in total. AppleInsider says that this change in plan came about after the 9.7-inch tablet shipments “collapsed” from 7.4 million in January, while smaller tablets such as the iPad mini and the Nexus 7 from Google increased to 14 million from 12 million.

    Wow. That's the first I'd heard of the ipad mini outselling the ipad. Sum total, those are some crazy numbers sold.

    128Gb+retina display+quad-core processor?

    That would have the competition quaking.

    It's funny how people go from their desktop>to their laptop> then to their full size iPad> then a mini!

    Sorta like an iPhone I guess.

    Gosh...that kind of sounds like my new MacBook Air! LOL;)

    Retina display would be nice and also nice would be LTE on it. I may just go with a black mini since everything I have is white. Decisions, decisions!!

    I think the iPhone started it all....well it did for me. All of a sudden it wasn't just a phone anymore.

    Then the iphone made me want an iPad! ;)

    That was my direction too. I was administering a small network a few years ago and grew to hate Apple because one guy insisted on running an Apple laptop when everything else was Windows.

    I saw the iPhone 3GS and was impressed, so the iPhone 4 was my next phone. The iPad followed and I bought my MBP today.

    Thanks. I'll be picking it up next weekend. I have my iPhone and iPad to keep me going until it arrives.

    I hope so. It's amazing to think it will run 1080p in a window, with plenty of screen left over.

    I went the opposite way, with a white iPad mini and iPhone 5, after having all my previous iDevices in black.

    Likely, but I will probably not be first in line this time. I'm going to wait to see what others say about weight & battery life. If they manage to make a mini as light (or really close) as this one with a retina screen, beefier internals, with good battery life without getting so warm, I'll jump. Otherwise, I'll wait until I've had this one at least a year. I bought two iPads in 2012...and two Nexus tablets. It's not like I need a new tablet. I might enjoy a better camera more.

    15. The 13 came with 128 Gb SSD and i5 processor. Upping that to 256 Gb and i7 made it the same price as the 15, so I figured I may as well go with the 15. Costing out the 13" MBA was a similar story.
