    I know there are tons of folks out there that just can't stand not having the latest new apple product.
    So will you dump the 3 for a new shinny mini?

    I'd like to see the eenie meeni Mini and hold one first.
    Likely wait for the Micro iPad, or the iWatch

    Yep I know for me the 3 is perfect, so I'll be passing it up but I think it's a great size for a large segment of users with good eyes and small hands.

    Nope! I love my 3. I can't imagine going smaller. My iphone 4 is small enough. I love my books and videos on the 3. The mini will appeal to people upgrading or buying new tablet instead of other samples on the market. The name Apple goes a long way.

    Well, screen size of iPad 3 is just about perfect. As Steve Jobs once said "7 inch tabs are two big to be used as a phone and too small to be used as a tablet PC"! But I know the portability of 7 inch tablet is one thing that would attract masses!

    Never.....
    IMHO the iPad 3 size is perfect...........anything smaller and it's just plain tedious to do anything for an extended period of time.

    No way I'm getting rid of my iPad 3 with its retina screen for a weaker device without a retina screen.

    However, I will consider, once I see the actual price of the various models, adding an iPad Mini.

    The new, smaller iPad isn't even in the same league as the regular one. It's like comparing an apple with an orange. You might like one more than the other or maybe, you like them both! Your choice. I'm doing just fine with what I got.
