    Good choice. I would much rather have the Mini, for portability and ease of use.

    Can I ask what things you hate about the Nexus and why you like the mini better? I am thinking of trading my n7 for a mini possibly.

    Tuffy, would you say the screen is about the same as your old 2? I'm mostly curious about reading text on them.

    I had a nexus 7 and sold it and got a mini. The screen IMO you can't tell a difference between the two, and the last few weeks I had my nexus it started to lag and have problems that really made the tablet almost unusable. The mini has performed flawlessly for me and have had no issues. Plus the mini feels so much more solid built. Yes it doesn't have a retina display or top of the line processor but I have not have any slowdown or lag at all and am very happy with my purchase.

    Great little device, hope you enjoy it. I've always wanted a smaller Apple tablet, its the Apps! In my opinion, you're holding the best tablet computer available for size, functionality and fun factor! My fiance inherited my old iPad 1G and she loves looking up recipes and using it in the kitchen, looking at Facebook in bed, etc... But when we leave the house, my mini gets slipped into my jacket pocket and the Apple iPad experience continues with us wherever we go.

    Just bought my iPad Mini and I am in LOVE! This is my first tablet and coming from using my iPod touch for 2yrs it is a step up in the right direction! Apple made a great device! Still a Blackberry user though! :-)

    Pretty much the reason I preferred a mini over a Nexus 7. Android and its accompanying lags are a menace.

    Just picked up my iPad mini today at Walmart for 299. I sold my iPhone 5 and got this instead with a little extra cash in my pocket. I know it's a bit of a downgrade and you're probably thinking I should have waited for the next.. I've been using google voice for phone and didn't have a data plan attached to the iPhone because I was unemployed up until yesterday. Anyway, still using google voice on the iPad and I really like it! I figure I might buy the 5s when it comes out and actually use that as a phone. This is a whole other type of apple addiction! I feel like I've been missing out on the iPad experience this whole time.

    Must admit I had a 4s which broke due to some gravity assisted damage and I swapped it for a blackberry (it was cheap and I quite like physical keyboards) and since getting the mini I've been having a lot of iPhone thoughts. I was holding out for the new q10 but I think I might be waiting slightly longer for a 5s now

    I had the same problem with my Nexus, although mine was laggy out of the box. It was also freezing and rebooting a lot. Although I kept it in a case the I never liked the way the back felt in my hands. Living in the UK I was also disappointed by the lack of content available for it (TV shows, quality of apps/lack of tablet apps). I think generally I was underwhelmed by it. I bought an iPad mini in January and sold my nexus 7. I haven't regretted it at all. I love my ipad mini, so much that I want to buy another so I can get more storage. It does everything I want in a tablet and looks gorgeous to boot.

    I also love using mine in the kitchen for recipes and to watch TV whilst I'm washing up and cleaning. The speakers are loud enough that I can hear it. I could never use my nexus 7 or galaxy tab because I couldn't hear it when washing up/ having the oven on/washing machine etc.

    I love my mini so much, bought a mini, told myself I needed a 4th gen for gaming because graphics and processor so I returned the mini and payed diff for the 4th gen, I felt like I was missing out so bought another mini this time a 32 with Verizon , and I love it ,almost never touch the big one and its so much nicer playing games on this form factor, I think I'm gonna sell the 4 so I can save the money towards the new big ipad when it comes ,and is hopefully slimmer with the bezel type of the mini, also will buy a new mini and give this one to a family member, and maybe a new iPhone the only plans I don't have is a new MacBook ,as far as waiting for the next one for people looking to buy one ,just go for it now ,the latest rumor is new production won't start till July or so and that's a lot of months of enjoyment you can have till then! My opinion also we all try to buy as much storage as money allows which is smart,but also I couldn't buy something this portable without cellular so if you can afford it go for it, I tethered awhile to my iPhone with other iPads and its just not the same as having dedicated lte all the time! But as far as my mini I love it and couldn't do without it, my ipad 4 is great to but wouldn't miss it as much,also carrying this thing naked is awesome ,fits right in my pocket and no worries because you can get assurion insurance through Verizon for ten bucks a month
