    Jon has a first generation iPad and wants an upgrade as it won't do everything he wants to do. I have a 3rd Gen at the moment with high storage which i don't use but he wants. I thought about getting an iPad mini for me as and giving him the 3rd gen.

    Has anyone got a mini? i don't use my iPad for loads of stuff other than surfing, calendar etc.. thought then i could carry it around more in my bag... Any disadvantages you can think of?

    I do and I really, really like it! I use mine about the same way as you use yours. It's SO convenient! Give it to the man and go get yourself a new mini! :D

    I like your way of thinking









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    I LOVE my ipad mini and havent used the full version since I got the mini

    The main (only?) disadvantage is the size of text etc on the screen. It is easier to read webpages on the full than the mini (unless theyre optimised)

    Even with all that, I prefer the mini

    Thats such a hard one to answer.. the first ipad mini doesnt have a "retina" display like the 3rd gen ipad but honestly I've never had a problem with it! I read a LOT on it... perhaps movies would be better on the retina but honestly I find it fine. It's smaller than the 10" ipad so I think fewer pixels probably doesnt hurt it as much

    Interested to see what the new mini looks like though
