    What do you think is the best iPad in your opinion?

    For me, its the iPad mini. The sharp sides of the iPad 1, 2, 3, and 4 are painful. And I try to keep away from A7 devices.

    I have both minis. The new one blows the other completely off the planet. Sorry.

    Reason why I stay away from A7 devices is because of compatibility issues of JB tweaks and crash issues

    I'm loving the iPad Air right now.....I also have the iPad 2 and the first mini.

    I think the iPad Air trumps them all!

    I have to say the iPad Air, simply because of its thickness and weight in ratio to its screen size.

    I agree of course but it could be argued that the iPad 2 was the biggest upgrade of the whole bunch. It was such a big jump from the original iPad.

    Hmm....I think the jump between the mini 1 and the mini 2 competes with this, IMO. iPad 1 to iPad 2 includes double the memory and storage, faster processor, but the jump from mini 1 to mini 2, includes double memory, 128gb storage option, 8x speed, mimo wifi, worldwide cellular, and a retina screen. Frankly, IMO, the mini 2 is simply the best bang-for-the-buck iPad Apple has EVER made. And the screens are simply not that different in size. Heck, the screen on the mini is way larger than that on my Nexus 7 and while the nexus 10 has a way larger screen than the mini, images on my mini are larger than the same on the nexus 10 (using the default viewing app) due to the way the images are display on the screen.

    We have two iPad mini's in our household, my wife has the mini I and I have the new iPad mini with retina screen etc. I love my new mini compared to my wife's mini I, first the retina picture is really a wow factor, my mini II is also so much faster all the way around. I had planned on getting the Air but in the end I decided on the mini because it's easier to travel with and for my uses, reading and surfing the net and playing a couple games I'm glad I chose the mini II.

    I agree. The iPad Mini w/Retina is awesome! I love it for the same reasons: easy to travel with, I always have something to read or play games on, and also surf the web at any time (I have cellular). And the Retina screen is the icing on the cake!
