    And informed consumer is one without remorse. Do thorough research objectively, then make your selection. I did. No remorse here.

    I never use my rMini anymore. Just my iPad Air. My rMini is now a paper weight so it's time to sell it. Both of mine are cellular models and it leaves the house with me 5 days a week. The size of the Air doesn't change how it goes with me. I just prefer the bigger screen.

    I think both are great, but honestly the rMini is the way to go. I'm glad I got it straight from day one, and like HankAZ said, an informed buyer is one with no remorse

    I do believe that people should take more time to research products of this magnitude before making a purchase. However, you really never know if the product works for you until you actually use it on a daily basis. But that is what a return window is for. There have been many products that I have researched and determined that they were a good fit for me and upon getting them and using them often, realized that they indeed were not for me.

    I agree exactly and sometimes you have you try them to know if it will really work for you. Well said.

    I do sometimes miss the iPad for the larger screen and near-full-sized virtual keyboard, but I also love the portability of my iPad mini.

    I would probably be complaining about the opposite thing were I using an iPad Air. So I don't know if this counts as buyer's remorse.

    Although I'm on the Mini now, the Carrier (T-Mobile) Air is my go to device 85% of the time since I got it.

    No remorse at all

    Default Anybody getting buyers remorse?

    I got the 16gb Space Grey LTE, couldn't possibly be happier with it. The Air was just too big. I tried it at the store for quite a while, and it just didn't work for me. The MiniR is the perfect size. And the screen, oh man, this screen!

    Storage size isn't an issue for me at all. I don't store much on my devices, so the 16gb will likely never exceed half full.

    Never once have I had buyers remorse after buying an apple product. Never. And I've owned: an iPod mini, two iPod touch 2G's, an iPod touch 5th generation, an iPad mini first generation, a MacBook Air, an iPod classic 5th generation, and an iPhone 5. (In that order)

    Same here. I never get buyer's remorse from my Apple products. I've had an iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano (4th Gen), an iPod Touch 4, and an iPad Mini with Retina. Never had any remorse about getting these, they have all been great products

    I currently have a Samsung Tab 3 7.0. I just ordered the Mini Retina with 64gb. I like the smaller size for travel and it will fit inside my camera bag. My wife has the Air and prefers that size.

It also helps that the Air is bigger because then I can attach a pretty big sized keyboard to it and use it for work or any other general typing.

    Mini is awesome. I can see your point about keyboard. I use my PC laptop for word processing.

    I've had the 5s for a year and in November 2015 I'm eligible for an upgrade. I was going to get the 6s+ or whatever's it will be called but I just got an iPad mini 2 and I see no need to change now. I love my mini retina. My wife has an iPad 4 which is nice but it's too heavy. This one is perfect for me. No regrets!

    I'm coming from the Nexus 7, Android's version of a 7" tablet; and to me the rMini is more like an 8" tablet. My previous experience with iOS is on an iPhone 4 and much later, iPhone 5. So the rMini, to me, seems vast. No remorse here at all, the Air felt awkwardly huge to me.

    No remorse here. I bought my wife's mini w/retina with 128gb of memory in feb 2013. It cost me almost $900 after taxes but she has a ridiculous amount of storage space for the years and babies to come. It has Verizon LTE and she loves it. She doesn't need to upgrade all the time as long as the thing she is using is made to last and it doesn't run out of memory. I know future iPads will be hard to resist but this mini 2 is so well built I don't see why it won't last us 5,10 years (especially with the fisher price otter box I bought for her for Christmas). I do want an apple desktop or laptop. I also bought my iPhone 6plus with 128 gb. I feel like it will help keep the value up, if I do decide to sell it. Basically if it doesn't have a memory card expansion slot just get the bigger storage..... You won't regret it.

    I wanted to take my mini retina to the Photography Club I belong and leave the laptop behind. Carrying cameras and the lappy + other gear is getting too much and it works brilliantly for me although I do have to take the lappy still some weeks. I use the iPad mini retina more than I did with my Tab 3 8" as it is longer so wider when viewing web sites. It is sleeker, more defined and more powerful so I feel good browsing whilst watching TV, a full size iPad would have been no good for me for what I do.

    As far as storage is involved I got the 16GB knowing full well I would find a way around any storage issues. to this end I purchased a RavPower 5 in 1. It allows me to charge my phone and partial charge the iPad mini retina. I can use SD Cards in it, USB memory sticks and my external USB powered 500GB HDD and stream it to the iPad Mini Retina. When at home I use the LAN and the internal IP address of 192.168.0.xxx to connect to it via my browser. When out taking photographs and no network the RavPower sets its own Network Zone up and I can connect using a different IP address of 10.10.10.254. This is a brilliant setup for me and it makes the iPad mini retina unlimited storage via SD Cards, USB Memory sticks and USB HDD plus the streaming of videos and other content to it from the RavPower. Power backup and its own network zone.

    I don't like having to depend on having an Internet signal in order to view my pics and videos and listen to music. And I drive a lot in Texas so no matter who the carrier it gets a little choppy. Plus I don't want to stream all my info. Why should I have to pay for the data to listen to music I own or watch a movie I own? When around Internet it is not a problem but when you have no signal you have no music or movies. I am glad some people can get around this, but for me I will just spend a little more and have all my data at my finger tips no matter where I am.
