    I'm having the same problem..do you know if retina makes a BIG difference? I'm using the iPad 3 retina right now but I've never owned an apple product without it..
    I've been with the iPhone since the 3G, and the original iPad. I've owned the 3G, the 4, and the 4S (currently), as well as the original iPad and the iPad 2 (currently). Just have to say that every time I see the Retina screen on any Apple product, I'm constantly amazed about the difference it makes. Since the mini is going to have about 167(if I got my spec right?) ppi, it seems like it'll be just like the mini itself - a tweener. Clearer than the iPad/iPad 2, but not quite Retina-worthy. I'm sure it'll make a big difference though, and since Apple's only improved on their image processing quality since non-Retina products, I'm sure they'll enhance the clarity as much as possible.

    That being said, the iPad 2 vs. iPad 3 is definitely notable, even when not side-by-side. Make of that what you will with regards to the iPad mini. Hope that helps!

    No, but having 4gb of RAM in a fragmented OS is also just a big number with nothing to show
    oh so the 4 gigs are not used by programs on the surface??

    Not at all brother. I actually came from the gym from work and afterwards stopped to get McDonald's (McDouble w/fry $2.36) just so that I didn't have to go into the freezer. Do you my man.

    An hour and 45 min to go. Think I'm just going to order the 16 GB black to see if I like the form factor. Can always gift it and go bigger or LTE later. My kids love my trial runs with new products

    So who else is getting the mini in white? I'm also curious, are you a dude or a girl?

    For some reason, the general consensus seems to be that the white apple products are for women. I'm a dude and I've always gotten the white versions xD.

    While that isn't necessarily an inaccurate statement, do you know how RAM is used?

    LOL. My wife has requested the White/Silver iPad mini. She's been with the white iOS devices since the 4S/iPad 2, and she said that she just likes them. She says they look more clean and crisp.

    And more feminine. Her words, not mine!

    Dude. White. White is sexy and beautiful, and combined with the silver, looks like a million bucks. The black scratches if you even look at it, by the way.

    From my observations, at school, everyone gets white. I have a black iPhone, and I only know of 4 other black iPhone owners, and basically every other iPhone owner at my school owns a white iPhone.

    You know what they say, unused ram is wasted ram.

    If it weren't for my wanting the proximity sensor (phone) and front camera to blend with the bezel I would go for the white on either. Nothing overly feminine about white over black in my eyes

    Haha while a big exaggerated, I do agree that the white just seems to have more character. Even though it's more popular, it feels more exclusive and luxurious for some reason.
