This. I still have my iPad 2 because I find the 3 and 4 unacceptably hot. The hits to weight and thickness don't help either, but it's the heat that really kills me.

I am an IT Professional / Amateur photographer, I love the mini, beats carrying around the full-size iPad for a few more PPI.

I like the full size ipad, but given how packed my bag is with other gadgets, I tend to want to limit weight where I can.

Don't like the mini, don't buy it, or refund. But don't try and take away from other people's enjoyment of their device.

Your opinion is allowed, but you don't have to bang on about something that has already been said a million times.

Instead of quoting the OPs post and saying +1 or I agree, vote their post up, we don't need to skim over 300 posts of +1 just to get to content.

You find the 4 unacceptably hot? Really?

I hate troll BS, but I would encourage anyone to casually try to find a 16 or 32 gig mini right now. It is a substantial amount of effort. Regular iPads are everywhere. I think the mini is the future of this platform, at least until Apple can get the weight and thickness of the regular iPads down to where they're comfortable to use for long periods of time.

I may not ever own a "full sized" iPad again. After using the mini, I don't like the feel of the iPad 2 we still have in the home. Added with the fact that the 3 and 4 are slightly (very slight but still) heavier than the 2 is a big turn off. Some people are replacing laptops though. That is the only way I believe a full sized iPad can be justified after the mini has retina.

And yet a 1 to 2 week backlog exists 3 months after introduction.

And the mini is probably neck and neck with the nexus 7 for tablet of the year honors for 2012.

Honestly, I think the iPad 3 is the tablet of the year. Considering how advanced it was at it's release it deserves it.

The iPad mini is not an engineering marvel.
