    But Anyway...

    In final response to the OP's question.. No One "Looked Past" this whole "Retina Thing"..

    Everyone MADE A CHOICE.. and KNEW EXCACTLY what they were buying..

    You want a Retina Screen pay $399 - $699.00 and get it..

    You want what the Mini brings pay $329 - $659.00 and get it..

    You did not "Look-Past" anything..

    You made a choice.
    I don't know how I missed this seeing it was my own thread, lol

    I want a retina screen iPad Mini and I'm sure I will get it for $329-$659
    once it's out. I want portability with a small form factor with retina
    display and I will get it for $329-$659. I'd bet my life on it.

    Making a choice and knowing exactly what each of us are buying is
    different than looking past a feature. Simply put, I was wondering if
    many people who were really interested in it did what I did and took
    it back or just all-out didn't buy it because it was lacking retina display.

    LOL !
    It's still was a "Trade-Off" A Retina iPad Mini did not exsist.. does not exsist.. and who knows? may never exsist. The technology at the moment does not exsist to keep the iPad Mini Everything that it is now and also magically become a Retina.. Price being the least of Apple's worries :-)

    Have you seen the battery that powers the 4th-Gen iPad? it's bigger than an entire Mini..

    The Mini will have to get at least the batterylife it currently enjoys.. while having enough "Grunt" to push those 3.1 million Retina pixels and supply them with Light.. ( up from the current 756k ) as of this moment in time, that technology simply does not exsist without a sacrifice of some sort ( Size or weight ) to make it happen..

    One day you will be able to have a Mini with a Retina Display.

    But I have a feeling the Redesigned iPad 5 (Mini-Style) is going to be One Big Show Stopper..

    I know that's where my $600.00 is going.. :-)

    If the 5 comes out in a smaller and lighter package like the mini and still has the same size screen as the 4, that's where my money is going this fall. I love my mini, but really want retina. Woulda gone with the 4, but I want more portability. And a lower weight and sized full size 5 would be perfect.

    Default Did you try to look past non-retina when purchasing the iPad Mini?

    I could care less that my iPad Mini doesn't have retina display. Then again I never cared whether my phone did or not, either.

    Mods, you can go ahead and close this thread since I own an iPad Mini once again
    and am now a hypocrite.

    My phone lasts 3 days a charge now, that is how little I use it, since I am on my mini all the time.

    I think I'm gonna just sell my iPad 4 now since I hardly use it. The Mini is just too
    easy to carry around and I see myself neglecting my phone too.

    I'm in the hypocrite club as well. Screen does matter don't get me wrong. But form factor, size, and weight matter more in this instance. It also helps that the nonretina screen wasn't too bad to begin with. It's just text issues for me which can be solved for the most part by zooming, turning landscape, or increasing fonts. Graphics, pics, video, even comics, i don't have a problem with.
