Thinking the Wifi only version is just fine but again any advice, she has the Iphone to take out so can't really see why an Ipad would need to leave house.
Reckon I will stick with Apple but the choice between Mini and Ipad4 is tough, is the screen on the mini ok for everyday use or do people find it a bit small. Also then does the physical size of the Ipad4 be a bit of a problem as its quite a bit bigger than the Mini?
Daily mail!! Yes, it makes that shite look better
The mini has more PPI than the ipad 2 so it sits somewhere in between on quality.
Along with the screen the ipad 4 is just that little bit quicker at doing things and surprisingly i got into gaming on it too. Fifa, real racing, nfs etc. The GPU handles those games better and i believe it might have more ram.
Not sure about the mini battery life but ipad 4 lasts way longer than the ipad 2.
You probably wont notice an awful lot of difference in the CPU, GPU and ram. As advised perhaps best to get to an apple store and see what you think of the ergonomics, size and weight.
