1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

Finally got my mini!

    I got the white 32. That is more than enough storage for what I need.

    That seems to be the right size for me, too. I don't have the mini yet, but have a 32 Gb white iPad 2! Simply love the thing!

    Waiting for mini 2. However I love my pad2. Not very portable due to weight and size but not sure I could do with one or the other. Will make that determination when I have both.

    I think the social media apps are a must plus some new games like Temple Run 2, Candy Crush etc. :)
