strategy games? how so?

typing? split keyboard on the mini is alot more enjoyable on the small one even with the shaved off weight of the air, the air is in comparsion still a fatty.

The only problem with the mini is that it's a little more difficult to play Crabitron.

I ensure you that it doesn`t matter if you choose the iPad Air or the iPad Mini with Retina if it comes to Games like HearthStone and similar Games since those Games look on both iDevices great.

If I were you I would choose the iDevice that would fit better your needs:

If you want to use your iDevice more while being on the road or wearing it with you on the way to School/Work I would choose the iPad Mini with Retina instead of the iPad Air since the extra Weight and the Size would probably sooner or latter become a handicap for you if you want to always wear it around.

If you want to use it more as a second Screen to watch Movies or play the newest Shooter also in the upcoming next (two) Years without any hassle I would go with the iPad Air.

Overall both iDevices are great and worth it, it`s just that one might better fit what you want to do with it.

I personally prefer iPad mini. But both devices are fantastic. If you want to use your iPad mostly at home, it might be a better idea to go with Air, if you plan to take it with you everywhere, it is better to buy Mini, IMO

16:9 tabletes are basically unusable in landscape except for games and movies. I have a Nexus 7 which I love and I'd kill for it to be 4:3.
