    I find it very funny when people compare brand new tablet models to ones that are a year old. The way technology changes unless the models are released within a month of each other then comparisons are irrelevant. I love my Mini and being a former Android user don't miss the experience at all.

    I have been a strict Android user for years. I mod and theme things on a popular android site. I always said that I would NEVER buy an Apple product.

    Well....it happened. I purchased the iPad Mini on Monday and have been VERY happy with it.

    I bought the Nexus 7 2013 and had to return it 5 times due to dead pixels, light bleeding, etc. Honestly I am happy that happened. I am pleased with the ipad mini.

    I think my ipad mini is great!! I use it for work a lot. I hardly use my laptop anymore. I have a Bluetooth keyboard to use with it. Will buy the retina at some point.

    I cannot remember if I posted in here, but I love my mini. I had the iPad 2, then the iPad 3, and the smaller size is awesome. I can keep it in my purse easier, it's lighter, and the battery lasts forever. I do miss the retina a bit, but I will probably wait until the third one before I upgrade.

    My iPad mini is the best gift I got all year.

    Same here with the exception of the retina display. I was satisfied with the non-retina display of my iPad 2 and even more so with the Mini because its smaller size makes the screen even more clearer, at least to me...

    I agree with you here, D. I think the smaller screen on the iPad Mini does make it a little sharper even though it doesn't have a Retina display.

    I'm extremely happy and wonder what took me so long? The final straw, and the catalyst, that had me purchasing a Mini a couple weeks back was my Samsung 7 Plus finally kicking the bucket. I was never fully satisfied with the Android ecosystem, though I did love the flexibility it gave to have a measure of control over what the device did. I have a 3rd generation iTouch and 80gb classic (with zero problems whatsoever) and recently picked up a 5th generation iTouch fueled by the consistent, dependable performance of Apple products. My purchase of the Mini was, while dipping into my savings a bit, a great one and I still have no regrets. I use it from everything to reading, websurfing, watching movies and playing games and I know it will last me for years with proper care. I also love how it will get the new iOS 7 update as well in a few weeks. Having a device, even though it's a full year old still supported with updates (major ones, too!) is always reaffirming.

    Yes, I love my iPad Mini. I hope they do a retina version this year. I will be all over that!

    I just love it. Do pretty much everything on my mini, it's so light and it's perfect for gaming and reading and iOS runs so smooth on it. Haven't experienced any problems with the resolution, everything looks crispy so far. Can't wait to update it to iOS 7. I recommend it.

    I know I'm late to this thread...new models will be out soon. I couldn't be happier with my new iPad Mini. I straight up traded my iPad 2 with Smart Cover and some extras for a new sealed iPad Mini. I had the 2 for about a year so I was really used to it. Now I could never go back. Two things that stand out...I love the smaller size and the fact that it has a lightning port as opposed to the 30-pin. I thought I would hate downsizing but I had to give it a shot. At this point I don't think I would trade my mini for an iPad 3..however I would probably have to swap for the 4.

    I traded in my iPad 2 for an iPad Mini back in February and couldn't be happier. I love the size, it is perfect tablet size for me. I am excited to see what new is coming in the iPad Mini.

    No regrets on getting the mini! Got mine a month a go and although at first the screen bothers me cause I've been used to my mom's iPad 4 with retina but I got along with it. Totally amazing! But sometimes I've been experiencing some lags while on multitasking and switching to landscape and portrait mode for me its a minimal effect. I use my mini on web surfing, forums searching, taking pics, taking down notes in school and minimal gaming. Totally pleased with my mini on iOS 7 no regrets even it has no Retina. 😊

    Absolutely love my iPad mini. Couple with my iPhone, it's a PERFECT combination. Both are with me always. Whether, it's work, or personal, my mini does the job. Feel naked without it.

    Bought a used iPad mini and just love it compared to my iPad 1. I'm still on iOS 7.1.2 too cause I don't want to turn my iPad into a bug harvest like what happened to my 4S that I updated to iOS 8.

    I'm very happy with my Mini 3. I was happy with my original Mini too. I'm not able to tote around and use the bigger iPad comfortably. For me, the Mini line is absolutely perfect. If I need a big screen, I use my laptop.

    Perfect size for me....
    All though for people who havnt used the original or the "big iPads"....
    They maybe be tempted to tryout the bigger size....
    But after using the ipad 4 & air 2 I find the big iPads really ugly compared to the mini'is design
    I JUST LOVE IT 😘
