I-Pad
 
Looking to purchase one for a Christmas present and want feedback on which one to get; Mini or Original?

latravcha 11-26-2012 05:27 PM

I have the original and love it

Sea-Trac Offshore 11-26-2012 05:36 PM

Original. I like the larger screen

scott craft 11-26-2012 05:42 PM

For around the house the original size, but to take when you go places the mini is pretty nice.

I just bought the original and love it. The mini really isn't much cheaper and its about half the size.

go for the original- Mini is very expensive for the size. If you want a small size get the Kindle Fire or Kindle HD. I have Ipad and Kindle. Kindle is awesome and is 3 times cheaper. Kindle and Mini both have 7" screens. Kindle does almost everything the Ipad will do.

I have the bigger one and it works fine. I would buy the smaller if size was an issue. But like others have said the larger screen is nice.

Ok, now who has the best price? Amazon,BB,ect?

I have the big one and I love it. I think they are pretty much the same price everywhere but every now and then you can find a deal on one with a gift card. Another costly option is one with a data plan or just strictly wifi.

I got a deal with ATT because I got a data plan. It was only 10.00 month for the add on data plan to my phone plan. Im sure thats with all the phone carriers.

When I got mine it was $130 more for one with 3G capability. And I didn't even know you could add it to your plan for that cheap. I pay $30 a month!

Yes they added it like a family share plan. I am pretty sure it is 10.00. I hope i am correct. But thats what I remember.

We have a couple kindles, ipod touchs and ipad I & II. Kids fight over the Ipads. Never had a mini but the big size ones are pretty tough. be careful with them if you have kids. I didn't know until yesterday that the kindles had wifi and opened one up, saw it on youtube, checked the history and was not impressed what my 12 yr old was looking up. He is now officially yard man for a while. If you have kids try to put some kind of parental controls.

Full size

Yes, they are $10 extra a month. My wife and I each just got new ones. If you sign a 2 year contrat with AT&T you get $100 off of the price. I don't think it apply's to the newest ones with the retina display though. Mine has the retina display and my wife's doesn't and I don't notice much difference between the two.
