I just got my mini in the mail today and for the few minutes I got to play with it, I love it. I have had an ipad 2 for 2 years, iPhone 4 for 2 years a MacBook Pro and I had to get a mini. This will be my last Apple for a year then I plan to buy a Mac.
I chose the white 16g and will use it for a more portable ipad to view movies and read books on. I may end up with two minis because the kids use the ipad2 and my wife needs one. I look forward to learning about this mighty little ipad.

Congrats! What's your opinion of the non-retina display? Do you find it ok?

I find it to still be very clear and things look crisper then the ipad 2. That's just me though.

I've been on the fence for the mini, I was waiting until the next gen but I may just break and get this one to play around with. Thanks and congrats again!

Ill admit I was one of those people that said whats the point in the mini...and now I have one.

I love my mini. I found a huge different between my original iPad and it. Course the screen really mattered to me...Im not one to notice the difference between retina and non-retina. The biggest thing was when I went to use my old iPad at my parents (gave it to my mom) and I realized what a size difference it really was! Its perfect for watching movies on while in bed at night...I can never find my stupid remote, but I always know where the iPad is!

Yeah it's perfect. And light. I have arthritic fingers so my mini is naked and weightless. Better than a book or anything else in its class. Wonder what the next one will have? From what I heard, it's not too much more.

Next one will be gold and impossible to find on launch day or weeks after. LOL
