Just shipped my mini and 3rd gen. off this morning. The mini felt like a compromise to me. I think Apple could have produced a better product than what was delivered. The mini in my opinion is lazy and half-baked. iPad 4, here I come.

issue was theres already an iphone, and the mini isnt significantly better than an iphone. the screen is too small to give a full web experience.

The 10" is a great tradeoff between full web experience and portabiliy (vs. a laptop..)

I roll with iPhone, iPad and 15" laptop.

Now, if only Mini was reasonably priced.

The display is noticeably worse, but for me the portability makes up for it.

When the mini gets a retina display I will be first in line
My sentiments exactly.

I'm keeping BOTH my 3 and the Mini, but I expect to be using the Mini the most. I think its the perfect size / weight for me. And unlike some others, I do not think the screen resolution is an issue at all. I'm 47, wear glasses and the screen on the Mini is perfectly usable to me.

Even without a retina display the Mini is a hit!

Depends on what you are doing. iPad is 100% consumption for me.

I will be using the iPad 4 to do a lot of reading so even though its heavier and bulkier, the reading experience is more important to me.
