    Well, only you can answer that question - I have an iPad 2 and the HD movies have looked fine for me (assume that you have seen & liked the same experience) - the only way that you can decide is to watch the same film(s) on the Mini - either a friend's device or a visit to the Apple store w/ a comparison will answer your question - just saying? :) BTW - welcome to the forum!

    I agree. Frankly, I think the screen of any iPad is too small for my wishes, but when I have no other option my mini is just fine. It is much easier to carry around and a good bit larger than my phone screen. But you need to decide with your own eyes. In terms of ppi, the mini has a high resolution screen then the iPad 2, but the iPad 2's screen is obviously larger.

    Hi,

    Welcome to the forums.

    Aside from the physical size, there is no difference in screen resolution between the iPad 2 and the iPad Mini, so the pixel density on the Mini is a bit higher.

    With the pixels closer together, the videos you watch on the iPad2 will look a little sharper on the iPad Mini.
