Is the iPad Mini large enough to browse the web comfotably

I have a 15" Mac Book Pro which I find a bit heavy when travelling. I tend to use my iPhone 5 more often than the laptop when away but find that web browsing is too small. Is the iPad Mini display large enough to use (as a compromise) for browsing and to leave the laptop at home? Also for reading instead of the Kindle and use in bed. Would the iPad Air be better.
