    Well, I sold mine a few months ago, but it was pretty slow, very short on ram, and the screen was lack luster.

    I would have to agree, my sister has an the original iPad mini and I'm noticing it's slowing down a bit. Also, the iPad mini 2 has the same CPU as the iPad mini 3 so you should have great performance.

    Agreed, the retina display makes a huge difference.

    The original mini is slow. Don't recommend it. Go with the mini 2 with retina display.
