    Ipad Mini
    [HR][/HR]I sold my Ipad 2 and now looking at a Ipad Mini. I have some questions about the mini...

    Will I be able to watch ESPN live broadcasts like I could on my iPad 2?

    Can I get all the apps from the Apple store like I had on my Ipad 2?

    Can I stream my music and video via iTunes?

    Does the mini have the same apps and features as the IPad?

    I have only been a Mac user in the last year..so please no flames..

    The answer to all of your questions is yes. The Mini will run everything that the iPad 2 does and in the same way.

    No problem, BTW, I still have my iPad 2 but I also have an iPad Mini and I love it, I rarely pick up my iPad 2 as I much prefer my Mini, it took me a couple of days to get used to the smaller screen size and now I don't even notice it but the weight differential is amazing, it's a fabulous machine!

    I sold my iPad 2 earlier this year and purchased a Mini, and I absolutely love it! No regrets at all! Plus, the screen seems a bit clearer on the Mini even though both the Mini and the iPad 2 have the same screen resolution.

    I was waiting on the new mini with retina display, but it does not look like it's coming out too soon...

    I was in the same situation however...
    An hour ago I gave in and purchased an iPad mini online. It will be shipped to my store next Thursday! Can hardly wait. :)

    Well, not really correct, i.e. the iPad Mini offers 163 ppi (due to its smaller size) vs. the regular iPad (132 ppi), neither of which compare to the iPad w/ retina display (264 ppi) - I own an iPad 2 which is fine for reading, BUT also have a new r-MBP which I can easily read the smaller font size; wife has an iPad Mini and loves it - SO, bottom line is for those considering an iPad purchase, visit an Apple store and look at all of the options - if the size of the Mini is what you are yearning then make sure that the print size 'fits' your needs - Dave :)

    Hi Carol - wife has the iPad Mini and loves it! In fact, she's ignoring me - YIKES! :D

    Hope that you enjoy your 'new toy' - let us know! Dave :)

    Hi Dave--
