Sent my iPad 3 and iPad mini to Amazon today. Now, I'm missing them.

Yes, I still have my retina mini. I would not be without an iPad. Still.

Yeah, it's difficult parting with such an excellent product. I'm preparing to sell my iPhone 4S. I still have my iPhone 5, but I know I'll miss the 4S.

I kept my iPhone 4 as a 16Gb iPod when I bought my 5s. Can't get rid of it. We've been together nearly 4 years. :)

I plan to move to an iPhone 6 this year. I'll be keeping my 4S for use in my car, maybe.

At least someone will be happy when they buy your iPad 's a gift for a child maybe because the parents could not afford or unwilling to buy a new one, or a student with a tight budget, who knows. At least the new owners will get good quality iPad 's and the experience that goes with it

Both of them lived in cases and had no scratches and perfect screens. I had the original boxes and even the wrappers inside for the ipads, charger, and cable! :)

I've had my Mini for more than a year now and would feel the same as you if it went. It was the first iPad I ever bought. I too have the box and wrapping carefully stored away. I'm sure the Mini Retina is a big improvement, and I wouldn't object to having one, but I'd find it hard to let the Mini go.

Gosh.....that must be hard! I still have my iPad 2 and mini and now my Air.

I don't think I'd be able to part with any of them at this stage......hubby uses my 2 now!

I still have all my boxes and wrapping too!

We must all be hoarders! ;)

I have a different excuse for my iPad hoarding: Every iPad I stop using for both personal and professional gets used in the classes I teach.

When I sold my iPhone 3G and my iPad 1 I had the same feeling if sadness but using the successors makes you forget about it in the long run

Re: saving the boxes. Besides reminding us of the devices we have or have had, the boxes are really nice! Apple packaging is very stylish and solid looking, in a minimalist way.

I'm the same, Everything is saved for the next owner and when it all goes in the box its like a new device, my boxes are immaculate too, With my iPhones the earbuds are new as i don't use them, I even pass on the Apple stickers lol.
