    never considered the 4 since it's not that different than the 2 IMO.
    In terms of the size, I would have to agree. However, in terms of the camera, processor, and display, I think the iPad 4 is different.

    I just bought the Mini yesterday. It replaces an iPad 2. never considered the 4 since it's not that different than the 2 IMO. The Mini is what the iPad was meant to be - something between a phone and a laptop. The iPad is way too close to the laptop, and there isn't even much difference in weight between an iPad and an 11" MacBook Air, which is the combination I started with. Moving between my current MacBook Pro and iPad was difficult, but I can leave the Mac in my lap and grab the Mini with no problem, practically using them simultaneously. And I love getting the extra weight out of my purse!
    Size wise, the iPad 2 and iPad 4 are virtually identical. The iPad 4 is considerably faster than the iPad 2 in operation and graphics plus it has a much better screen. If you use cellular, LTE data speeds are also much faster the the 3G speeds if you are in a covered market. Not a huge overall difference in operation and ability to do things, but kind of like buying the same model car with a 4 cylinder engine/base radio and options (iPad 2) vs. the same model car with an 8 cylinder engine/premium radio and options. Both get you to the same place, one just does it faster and with some upgraded options.

    I would agree that for most people who have a MacBook Air, the iPad mini makes the most sense as a device between that and an iPhone. The iPad 2/3/4 still has some merit for those with a MBA as the battery life is double, the ability to use on a plane or other places with a lower profile yet become like a convertible notebook by adding a wireless keyboard that can be used or not as needed. You also get the built in cellular in the iPad that can be a factor for some.

    It really comes down to the specific needs of the user and what types of use they need to do with their device as well as where they will be using it.
