If you can wait, you wait

There's always a new better version around the corner. If you can wait, you wait.

There's nothing new about this. Just look at laptops over the years. Each year it got better.

No matter how new the device is (laptop, tablet, cellphone, desktop computer) there will be a newer model waiting to replace it in the near future. Just buy what's available and in your budget unless you are willing to wait a little longer for something better.

I agree with birdman, from what I've seen the only significant upgrade on the iPad Mini 2 is Retina Display. That's a nice upgrade, but it's not like it makes the old model obsolete, especially given the cost of buying a brand-new model. I've had the Mini since it came out and have no complaints. If you wait until the new one is released, you can at least get a price drop on the original.

Ipad mini is great, if you are not in rush, wait until it gets cheaper then to get one. The new Ipad has not released now, you have a long time to wait.

Hey I think you should wait for a while....
Because there is always something new in the new arrivals...
If you don't like the new arrivals then you should buy the Ipad mini and at that time it's price is also reduced.. Happy
