If you type alot, the air is much better cause you can use 10 fingers.

Both have same battery life.

For me the screen size doesn't matter when it comes to gaming.
Ah, but can you get a Mini with 128 GB?
Think I'll stick with my iPad 4 then.

The forthcoming Retina mini? Yes.

Go with the mini! I love the size of the mini. In my opinion it's a lot easier to hold for long periods of time (not just because of the weight but the size as well). I want one with retina display when they come up.

Mini all the way, no question about it. But beware, the stock will be super thin and they said 2/3 customers will not be able to get a mini. It's gonna be a huge demand item.

For me it's iPad Air all the way.
Some games is not suitable for the smaller screen.
If it's not a portability issue, I wouldn't switch.
