    You didn't fancy paying 10 more for an iPad mini...?

    I went into HMV and they are selling their stock of iPad 2 (approx) 100 cheaper so they have space to sell the iPad mini. Might keep my eyes open in getting one of those, because the mini seems a bit scarce at the moment.

    It's for my niece, so I preferred to get a bigger screen.

    @SuperCoolEskimo The screen size of a mini isn't that much smaller than a iPad 2.

    @Moot_Point 9.7" to 7.9"... big enough. :p

    Might pick up a mini for myself though, my first gen iPad looks knackered.

    There is an inch of screen size given to the border of the iPad 2.

    The border isn't part of the screen. The difference is 1.8 inches.

    Yes. However when you see the mini and compare it, you will see what i mean.

    My iPad 4 just arrived, first Apple thing I've had in nearly 2 years. It really is simultaneously a thing of beauty and a sack of shit, definitely not sorry I switched to Android for phones, but I do look forward to all the apps and games I've missed, which was the main reason I got an iPad anyway.

    Just seen the iPad mini advert, and glad I got the iPad 2 for my niece. The difference in screen size is very big, can't believe some people think they are similar.

    9 days and counting till my iPad purchase paying off.

    I really really hope Baldur's Gate has ported well, it really is 90% of the reason I picked up my ipad.

    I doubt I would be interested in an iPad until it has a minimum of 128Gb of storage.

    If you tie yourself into their cloud then you can get one with less storage and spend that money you saved on about 5 years of cloud usage. 128 gig would be a complete waste.

    Cloud storage is very handy for those who have a constant internet connection. It's not until you lose connectivity to the internet, that you would realise that cloud storage has its limitations.

    I have 16 GB and usually 12 GB free space. But I guess user habits differ. :p

    You're doing something strange if you can't cope with 64 gig of content for a few hours.

    I used to have a 250GB Archos and was convinced I'd never settle for less, but am now using a 64GB ipad and actually rarely even get close to using all that.

    Yeah, habits differ sure, but I never really used all that stuff on my Archos. I just liked the idea of having it all on one device if it I did want it.

    I have never owned an ipad larger than 16gb

    I dont know what people store on it? I mostly use mine for browsing, but I travel with it and take full TV seasons on it no problem.

    games are quite big thesedays. I have 4 or 5 games on my ipad such as walking dead which are approaching or at the 1GB size already.

    and i also like to download a bunch of spotify tracks on high quality.

    Yeah, I think I might struggle with a 16GB if I went away. I do like to load it up with stuff for holidays.

    I am usually satisfied with a couple of TV shows/films and a few books. The extra storage just costs so much I cant justify it.

    My mum bought this thing which you can put SD cards in, and then connect to the ipad by Wifi. Quite a neat little device for creating extra storage.

    on non-jailbreak versions?

    woah.

    actually a 16gb would be more than enough for my daily use, but i need 32gb for holidays.
