I'm in a process of transfering from doveloping for iPhone to developing for iPad.
I'v decided that the best value for my money would be the newest version, as its the only one with 64bit chip - so it would stay relevant longer.
Now the question is wether I should pick Mini or full-sized version.
I'm leaning towards Mini, since it has the same specs, and yet is smaller and cheaper.
I am worried tho that while using it for developement I might miss-judge texture and text sizes.
I'm also afarid that there might be other issues later, that I'm not forseeing.
Any thoughts on the subject?

The only difference for developers is the CPU. In the mini it has 100 Mhz less frequency.
