    Ordered an iPad mini 16gb wifi only from JLP, to use with my P2V. However, I have just read else where, that the original iPad mini is not upto the job, due to its old A5 chip causing video lag.

    So just after some feedback from those who are using an iPad mini, which version are you using (iPad mini original or iPad mini retina), what's your experiences with them?

    Obviously I don't want to go unpacking it and find the one I have ordered isn't upto it. I'll have to save some more pennies, if I have to get the Retina version!

    Look forward to your replies.

    Thanks Geert for your reply. What I do need to know now, is anybody using the original iPad mini (non retina model), as that's the one I ordered and may have to return it, if it's going to cause issues with video lag.

    How would the iPad mini mount onto the remote exactly?

    Geert:

    How are you finding the retina display in bright sunshine? I'm torn between the standard screen and the retina... but if the retina handles bright light better, it's worth the extra bucks to me...

    Thanks

    Bump.

    Is anybody using the first generation original iPad mini without any issues, or are you all that have one, using the new Retina iPad mini?

    I need to know ASAP please.
    Thanks.
