    I went back to the iPad 4 from an iPad Mini because I use it as a laptop replacement. The mini's screen was too small/low res for me to use things like Parallels and take notes in meetings at work (smaller screen = smaller keyboard). I'm also a cord cutter so I really use my iPad for a lot of video. The higher res, bigger screen is just better in these situations. I also had a lot of problems with missed touch targets on the mini. I fat fingered things more often than not on the mini. It was better when used it horizontally but I don't like using safari in landscape.

    For reading and games though the mini was amazing. I'm REALLY hoping the iPad 5th Gen cuts the bezel down and that can trim some of the weight. That would be the best of both worlds IMO.

    i agree...the ONLY THING is i love the retina screen. thats the only issue with me...
    This is the sole reason why I went back to my iPad 4 and returned the Mini. It's my only gripe.

    Although i like the Mini (my brother has one) i will stay with the 4 it has the better screen and more grunt. I do like the smaller bezels of the mini and hope that the next version has a retina screen with better specs otherwise i will keep my 4.

    My wife has the mini and I do like it. The smaller size seems awesome for reading books or taking it with you places. But I like the bigger screen on the iPad 4 because I like to type on the keyboard like on a laptop. It is a lot faster than thumb typing on the iPad mini for me. Having the extra real estate really makes a difference with web browsing and watching movies.
