I'd love to go with the mini, it's a great compromise size. There was no mini 4 when I was buying my Inspire, so I had to go the Air2.
It fits where the manuals were in the I1 case (with minor mods to the foam) so carrying it's no problem.
It has a hoodivision sunshield, so glare isn't a problem, and I love the big screen for my poor eyesight.
But graphics capability was discussed here at one stage as being really important for HD video feed, and the weaker the chip the hotter the device gets, so that convinced me to go with a naked air 2 without a case or other heat retainer, and the mini 3 wasn't going to cut it. Even the 4 has lower graphics, albeit a minor difference.
