Throw in the cheaper price and its simply a no brainer. my mini is perfect but ill just sell it for 250 or so and get the new mini...altho ill prob wait for the JB of course.
This is how I feel, my god the ipad mini is (in my opinion) the perfect size. I use it for everything from gaming to painting to making music. My brother has the larger ipad which I loved before I got the mini, but damn holding this is just so much more comfortable, and it fits in my jacket pocket.
No doubt I'm getting the next mini. However, the Air might be awesome for games as well if these damn controllers ever come out for the larger screen space for games and movies to marvel at the graphics.
Glad to see there are options though, I held off for so long on getting an original ipad because I felt they were too big, but for others the Air will be the perfect size.
