    Contemplating buying a mini. I'm just wondering how game performance is with the older cpu and lower RAM? Demanding games like asphalt 7 and the modern combat series etc..They didn't have any 3D games loaded on the display unit I tried out. Thanks

    I haven't played those....but I notice zero lag in any games on the mini. It uses lower resolution than the others and as games come with assets for the iPad 2 and the retina iPad, there is no need to worry. And if you don't like it, you have 14 days to take it back (just in case). I can try out mc3 later this evening if you like.

    How's modern combat 3 run and dead trigger? Is it much more comfortable playing games on the mini over the full sized iPad as I'm imagining? I can't play long without getting really fatigued arms and hands.

    It is absolutely more comfy. DT runs fine. I'm not very good at the controls on touch screen devices, but it is much easier to play. You lose out on the visuals, as you don't see the high res assets. To me, it is very much worth it.

    Just checked out MC3. I don't find any lag in the game, but I have to admit I don't last long in fps games, even on the iPad. I start to feel ill before I get very far in the game. So I never to to any heavy action scenes. Sorry I can't help with this one.

    We notice lag on The Walking Dead game, but I haven't run it on any other devices. I'll install it on my iPad 3 and iPhone 5 soon when I review the game.

    I just noticed that Asphalt 6 isn't working right on the mini.....I checked the reviews on this game in the Appstore. Others are having problems with it on the mini....

    RealRacingHD plays fine. The one on the left is from the mini, the one on the right is from iPad 3.
