    Whilst I love my iPad 4, I think the mini is so much more compact and more friendly in use to carry around in my handbag. Im curious as to who has swapped their Ipad for a mini?

    I didn't swap, but I'm certainly loving up on my mini. Your comments about it are spot on. However, I won't give up a retina display device for a mini until the mini has retina. So I'm keeping my iPad 3. Ive had it since march. You will have to make the choice for yourself. If you just got the iPad 4 and aren't in love with that retina screen and more powerful processor (more powerful by a lot) then do the swap and be happy. You know what you like and want....I would not blame you for it! :)

    By the way one of my lady friends told me she never had any interest in an iPad until she saw the mini, so you are NOT alone in your view.

    Lol no I'm with you on that one. I won't consider swapping my iPad for the mini until retina display is added :)

    I tried the mini, then traded it in for the iPad 4. The size was nice in terms of weight and handling it. But the size of the screen limits the view of web pages and email messages. I thought I could get used to it, after all it does not bother me on my iPhone... But it kept bugging me. I guess what I can accept on a phone, I cannot accept on a device that is supposed to be for reading email and surfing the web (at least, those are my main uses).

    But the size is lovely, and you might really enjoy it. I will say that Apple was lovely to deal with in terms of returning the mini. I did not have the box or anything as I returned it while traveling to another city, and they were wonderful about it. So maybe you should try it out. :)

    Wow Apple is absolutely fantastic. I'm lucky enough to have both. The mini iPad is my daughters. I didn't think of that or notice it until mentioned it.

    I traded my 1 st gen iPad 3 for a iPad mini!!!

    I traded my 1 st gen iPad 3 for a iPad mini!!!And I'm happy!
    I've had all versions of iPad 1,2,3 and have jail broke all of them - witch makes them far more usefull
    I hope a jailbreak is released but I'm happy in the mean time with my mini
    I really like the feel and its much more portable
    -big iPads are great for home but mini rules for out and about
    for petes sake I'm a big guy and my hand got
    tired of holding iPad 3 =too heavy for one hand I think and tablet should be one handed or

    I love my iPad4, but after using the Mini for a few days, the iPad 4 is gaining DUST.. the Mini is awesome and SO MUCH MORE SMALL and PORTABLE.. I will give my iPad 4 to my wife and she will sell her iPad 2.. so with that said.. after using the Mini for a few days and then picking up the iPad 4, the 4 feels like a BRICK.. just my two cents..

    I am keeping my iPad 2 to use around the house. The iPad mini stays in my work bag & used at work all day. I love both of them! :)

    I bought my iPad 3 mid July... Just went and picked up the iPad mini this past Thursday night.
    I've been playing with it all weekend. I didn't trade my old iPad in for it but I am planning to sell it.
    The mini is a much better size for me and what I need it for! I AM LOVING IT!!!!
