    Sorry if this has been asked somewhere, I couldn't find a topic on this anywhere.

    Currently I have an iPad 2. I really love using it for almost everything. I recently got the Zagg Profolio, which basically allows me to retire my MBP for most basic things (emails, note taking, even essays are very doable now). However, recently I have been thinking about an iPad mini. Not to replace my normal iPad, but to add to it. There have been times where I wish my current iPad would be more just a bit more portable. And of course, who just doesn't want a new gadget to play with? :D

    So my question, is anyone here using a regular iPad with a mini? If so, does it work? Or does it feel redundant to have both?

    I haven't touched my 3 month old iPad 4 since getting my mini.

    I use both of mine. My iPad 3 goes to work with me...my mini does most other things. I also have a Nexus 10 and 7. The Nexus 7 is the one getting the least use. I use 3 of these everyday. And I use my main PC, my work PC, and one of my laptops (work) most days. My MBA & Sony Laptop get the least use. My another PC which is my media server and I'm fooling with it all the time too.

    Ive done exactly what you've asked about. I have an iPad 2 and bought a mini to compliment it. At first i thought the mini might not have really been necessary. As time went on ( few days to a week or so) the mini became more used than the iPad 2. At this point both are valuable to me. They both have their specific uses- iPad 2 on the stand for heavy work and mini later at night when i just need a light device thats portable.

    That's pretty funny because your signature says differently.

    FYI, signatures that appear on a user's profile page remain the same no matter what device is being used to post on the forums.

    I just " wanted" a mini....could not justify getting one, but have no regrets at all. I still use my ipad 2 for watching TV and when my mini is charging. The mini I use for everything! Totally love all my devices. The only one that has become redundant is my iPod touch.

    I've given up justifying my need for Apple toys. I get very confused over the difference between "need" and "want". I may stop buying stuff if I ever discover that difference. In the meantime...

    I haven't changed it because I forgot it was there, since i don't see it. But thanks for reminding me, even if your comment is a bit snarky.

    I bought a 3rd generation ipad with wifi and 4g. Now I always take it on trips. A few months before youngest son had a stroke. We packed faster than I thought was possible and jumped into the car. On the way over we ran into the worst traffic jam ever. It took 45 minutes to get to the next exit so we could turn around and head south. We had no way to check maps for alternate routes and had to stick to the freeways. I will never be in that position again, thanks to the ipad. I use the ipad for online shopping because I don't trust my computers. I really want a mini too. But I have to wait for the next version. I would be reading a lot of books and the current one just isn't sharp enough. I sure hope it is out by Christmas.

    I don't use a defining line between want and need, either. My approach is, can I afford it, and will a product offer me enough enjoyment or use that it's worth that amount.

    Thanks for all the opinions. Decided I'll get one, but once they're available refurbished in my country. Currently rather save up for the upcoming iPad 5 :)
