    I know I can’t be the only one excited about the new iPad mini. I have a mini2 & will finally be upgrading. I didn’t see a need to upgrade when the 4 came out, but now my 2 is showing its age. The larger iPads are too big for me & the 4 was just too old.

    Will you all get a new Mini?
    I’ve always loved the mini size too. Lightweight, portable and easy to read books. ❤️

    Too small for me, use a kindle for books. Couldn't go below 11". Although if i could set one up in my car would be cheaper than a CarPlay unit, for my car anyway.

    You could probably do it. I know people used to use Google's Nexus 7 tablet as an entertainment unit like that.

    Agreed. I still find it interesting for that reason alone.

    got a gen 3 and a 5, the 3 still hangs in there despite the last” genius” I spoke to telling me it would die in a couple of months over a year ago, so I don’t need one.

    I use a kindle for books too, but my mini is for surfing the web, playing games, & watching things. Since I’m doing the trial for News+, it’s a great device to look at magazines on. Not too big, not too small.

    I just bought one despite owning a 9.7" one.

    I figure use the 9.7" one for Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc Use the Mini for everything else. I'm a colorist and a writer so it'll be nice.

    I got the gold 256 one coming today I’m excited l always loved the minis for there size and portability to just throw in the purse and go.

    I have the 10.5 pro in rose gold but for me l find its to big to carry anywhere plus my grand daughter usually is using that one when she comes to visit.
    Plus it’s a shiny new device coming lol

    Just got offered a 64gb by my Telco for $24 a month, works out $223 below retail here spread over 24mths. Only 2gb data but we share. Would be a good size between my XR and 11" pro.
    Think i would be mad not to take it??

    I’m using a gen 2 to write this. It is still going strong. I will probably pick up a new one when they start putting them on sale. Love the size of the mini. I use it for 90 percent of my web viewing.

    My gen3 does pretty well until I try to play games, then it makes me want to go buy the new one really bad!

    My kids have the gen 3 mini and while iOS 12 made them as usable as they’ve been in a long time it may not be long before we get the new ones. I love the size of the mini personally but I got the 10.5” pro last year and have no reason to get one for myself. I’m thinking I’ll get them the minis for Christmas.
