    As a spinoff from this thread, iPad mini w/ retina vs iPad 4 - iPhone, iPad, iPod Forums at iMore.com, does anyone use the original mini for light photo editing?

    I read that the original struggles with photo/image editing and it is recommended that Air or Retina mini be used instead.

    I'm confused because I've seen samples of images from an iPad 3 and they look great. Isn't the original mini on par, or even better than the iPad 3?

    Obviously, price is a factor here and I'm not a professional photographer. The editing I would be doing would be very minimal.

    Most people would argue that the screen size of the original mini compensates for the lack of retina though. I was more concerned about the hardware capabilities.

    Ahh. I can see why the reviewer would suggest the retina version of the mini over the original one then.

    I was under the impression that the 1st gen mini was on par with the iPhone 5.
