Had both an iPad Mini and 9.7-inch iPad at some point.

I found that the iPad Mini was too close to a smartphone, but the iPad was just the right size for doing tablet things like reading, video, etc. The Mini was just too small and it really didn’t make sense to carry it around.

I would really advise going for the Air rather then the Mini because I feel the Air does tablet things better than the Mini.

It depends on the user. My wife tried the Air and Mini and decided to go for the Mini. She has an older Mini and find the Air too heavy and big to hold. I think they have their own market.

I think it really depends on your phone size. If you have a Max/Plus, then it's 100% the Air. If you have something smaller, then it's a bit tougher but if you have either Pro I would get the Air. Otherwise it's a toss up.

I have a Max, and got the new iPad Mini, and though I love it's form factor, I returned it ultimately because I would always gravitate to my phone as the iPad Mini size was only a bit bigger.

I've had all the sizes and keep coming back to the 10 inch form factor.
iphone 6.1, 6.5, Mini 7.9, iPad 9.7, 10.9, 12.9.

Mini was good for the kid, but otherwise, I much prefer the 10 inch because it feels like the size of a printed page. 12.9 is too heavy.

I don't think I will ever buy anything but the 10/11 inch form from now on.

Right now using the iPhone Max 13, and I see no reason to carry around the Mini. Battery life of the iPhone 13 Max is insanely good, so the iPad's better battery life isn't the big advantage it used to be.

It depends on your usage. I find the mini is the right size for mobile gaming.

The mini has better specs compared to the air as it packs an A15 chip, better camera and is slightly cheaper to buy. But as many have said, the air is better in terms of size. I already have an iPhone 12 Pro Max and the size between the mini and my current phone make no sense. I do also have the air 4 and find it to a great size.

Mostly consuming video, shopping, scrolling through insta /Pinterest, chat, etc - it's for the missus.

Personally I think the Air is probably nicer but the mini is easier to use in bed. Decisions..m

This or a refurb pro, about $100 difference. Thoughts?
Current cell plans:
Fido $15 3gb
Koodo $40 for 5GB Public Mobile migration plan.
Affordable wireless is possible, just takes some creativity.

refurb pro, especially if m1

Face ID and better chip (and more RAM) even a year or so old will make all the difference. Let alone other things.

Is there a better deal out there? Not looking for the latest and greatest but more of a "newer" tablet for the kiddos.

Our current iPad/Mini are still running but has gotten really slow and no longer has updated OS so some apps no longer work on them.

iPad 9 for $400 will do everything this one will do albeit with 1 GB less RAM, 1 generation older processor and no USB-C

Where can I grab at that price? I checked Apple refurb and Costco but did not see any.

That’s not exactly right as iPad 9th generation doesn’t support Apple Pencil 2.

Not to mention the other hardware differences such as USB-C, fully laminated display, stereo speakers and access to Magic Keyboard.
