    Hello Scott, I really liked hearing Mark’s take on the iPad mini seeing as he uses his for so much. I have an iPad mini and use it for many things but do find there are things I go to my iPad 3rd generation for, such as if I’m going to read for long periods of time. But on the whole I really like the mini.

    I don’t have an iPad mini yet, but I certainly will in the future, possibly instead of a full sized iPad. I love the smaller form factor, I have owned a number of 7″ tablets and if anything the mini iPad is a bit too large for my taste, although I love the weight.

    I have always considered the retina display, which I have on my iPad 3, a mixed blessing, because it shortens battery life, requires faster processors, and makes the iPad run hotter. No problem at all with the mini iPad not being retina, I tend to notice the difference only on reading books, ;like the Kindle app.

    I am confused by Mark’s comment that a 16X9 form factor would somehow make an iPad strictly a consumption device and not a content creation device, though. For any content creation app that runs in landscape mode – spreadsheets, audio and video editing, mind mapping, even word processing in landscape mode, 16X9 is fine, even a better form factor. For certain other things, like reading a book or word processing in portrait mode, it is not as good, but it certainly can handle lots of content creation tasks, and probably at least as well overall as a 4X3 form factor.

    I think this may be another case of, like with smaller tablets, something being bad until Apple decides to do it.
