iPad mini with retina display or iPad Air

Okay, so I am torn between the iPad Air and Mini with retina. I love iPads I've always had one until recently I thought they were useless(stupid idea) and got rid of my iPad 4. Now I have a job and I am saving up. Considering the only difference is $100 and screen. I wanted the mini originally but I've been reading that the color gamut is "bad, awful, noticeable" so what are your guy's view? Is it bad? Is the Air just better in general? Also is the Air a pain to hold because I hated the weight of my iPad 4?
