I have read some really favorable comparison reviews about the ipad min retina ,comparison to the air.
The "thing" that is pushing me is apparently you can now connect ones desktop Caliber with the ipad mini
The other and I must have been hiding under a rock is that you can now get wireless 1tb drives so the problem with apples limited space is no longer a barrier
Yep I think I will then I will get rid of my kindle and will be as happy as Larry with my nexus 5 and ipad mini.

I love mine. Wanted a mini over a full size as I use it on the train for books and magazines. I didn't necessarily want the with retina - but I wanted the A7 processor (over the a5 in the previous model) - mostly because I'm a long time between updating devices, so needed the most processor power i could get.

So I picked up the space ship grey. I have to say I am seriously impressed . Not only is this a very slick bit of gear it is really smooth operation wise. And as for clarity haven't seen any better.

I've got the regular mini and I really like it, small enough that you can chuck it in a bag and not worry about it. The battery lasts for an amazingly long time, even during active use.

I was going to upgrade, but the pricing on the new ones was a tad steep. Maybe next gen.
