Never owned either, but do have a MB Pro...

Pros and cons of both from any owners out there would be appreciated please? (Above the obvious things like 'the mini is smaller' or the ipad 'has a bigger screen'.. :lol: )

Portability is an aspect I'm looking for, but I know it will also be used at home a lot too... Unlikely to be watching films much TBH, but wouldn't mind keeping my old itunes library for my Nano on it as a backup, so 64GB would be nice, 32GB if not.

What are the cameras like?

I'm looking at spending £450ish, credit limit allowing :D

IPad I'd say. We just got a second and were faced with the dilemna. Original size just as portable with a good cover, sandstrom have excellent cheap covers.

Larger screen size for typing, reading and swiping and viewing. Plus if you get into any music apps the the
larger screen size is great for keyboards and the more intuitive apps such as ikaossilator, figure, loopseque. Likewise if you want to emulate David Hockney with the brushes app.

My mum, dad (late 60s) niece 10 all got ipads having checked out mine. We're all on IPAD2s and the last but one IOS, not updated to IOS6 with all the apple mapping fiasco.

Cameras on them are shit in my view.
