    iPad Mini or latest version of iPad??

    I am gonna buy an iPad but not sure which to get...the mini or the newest iPad version. Anyone have thoughts on which is better?

    Mainly looking to use as wasting time watching tv, on planes while traveling, etc.

    Re: iPad Mini or latest version of iPad??

    The iPad mini and regular iPad are the essentially the same machine in different sizes. The regular sized one comes with the very nice retina display which for tv will look awesome. The choice really comes down to which screen size you prefer. I much prefer the regular iPad. Many women prefer the mini because it fits in a purse.

    One thing to keep in mind...new iPads are just around the corner as they will be introduced this fall.

    I have an Ipad and a nexus 7. I like the os of the nexus more but I use the ipad 5x as much just because of screen size.

    Re: iPad Mini or latest version of iPad??

    I like the full size for Internet browsing, watching TV shows, and playing a few games. I was going to get an iTouch for something portable when I did grocery shopping/Target shopping--I have an app for my lists (hubby has the same app on his Droid phone so we can each access/add things to the shopping lists and to-do lists. I didn't like carrying the full iPad to the store while trying to juggle a 2yr old and 6mo old. Instead hubby got me a smart phone.

    My parents travel with their full size iPad. They are currently on vacation and have been messaging us pictures from Switzerland, Italy, and Greece so they are taking it out with them to use for pictures (mainly to send to us in real time).

    Re: iPad Mini or latest version of iPad??

    You already have an iPhone, right? I know I already posted this on your FB, but I really don't think you'll regret having more space if you don't need this to be portable. I feel like I have to still squint sometimes to browse web pages that don't have mobile versions on my full-size iPad.

    Wait for the new ones, they will be the same price, but better. It would be silly to buy one now.

    You should wait till the newer versions come out if you weren't planning on doing that already. The ones that are out now will drop by around $100 once the new ones come out.

    Full size. I don't think the mini tablets are enough of a step up from a phone.

    Re: iPad Mini or latest version of iPad??

    There are times I'd like a mini, mostly for reading the weight of the full size iPad is a little annoying. For the most part though the full size is what I'd prefer, especially for watching movies or even playing games or whatever.
