I agree. I was a bit skeptical about it, but just holding the stupid thing and it starts to grow on you. So light, edges so thin!! For a device that will mainly be a consumption device and than can be a do-it-all in a pinch, this seems to be the perfect size.

If you do productivity stuff and need the real estate, then obviously the 10" is the first choice, but I quickly became keen on the little guy.

I also went to the Microsoft store to have a look. The Surface seems pretty nice too. They seem to have put some good thought into the hardware, seems high quality too. Screen was responsive. RT seemed a little weird, not a fan of the tiles but maybe need to spend some more time with it to become familiar.

Note to Microsoft: Hurry up and get Office for iOS out already!!

Holding off for my first iPad because you just know in 6 months they'll roll out iPad mini with retina and A6 chip ...while the iPad 5 will have something like "mega retina" and an A6.2318172043 chip

Agreed. The Mini may well become my first iPad, but only after the second or third iteration in Apple's planned obsolescence scheme. By then, they will have gotten it sufficiently right to be worth owning for a while.

For me, it's a sweet device in pretty much every way except the screen. Unlike Gruber, I can't get past its paltry resolution.

Once they bump that, and my first-gen iPad craps out, I'm there.

In the meantime, a Kindle Paperwhite is headed my way!

Typical NY'ers.
They will beg the rest of us TAX Payers to pay for repairs to their state but they will go buy a MINI which they could of gave that money to the victims.
But I guess it is only Stealing when it is their money and not others money being stolen in the form of TAXES!

I can't imagine waiting in line to buy anything, much less an iPad Mini.

If they were WASP college kids using their initiative to make a few extra bucks would it be such a problem?

I guess that means you must use at least a Galaxy S3 or Note 2 because the iphone 5 screen is too small. Afterall, it's .8 inches smaller.
The Nexus 7 screen is much smaller yet the device is about the same size as the iPad mini. That was my point.

Besides, why not apply your 'don't buy an iPad - feed the homeless' theory to evening? Do you buy your kids a toy or two for christmas? How dare you? You should instead use that money to feed homeless kids. Don't go to movies either, or buy an ice cream cone, or do ANYTHING more than what's absolutly essential for you to survive, and use the REST of your resources helping the homeless!!!
My point went so over your head, its unbelievably sad.

Homeless and powerless? Yeah, very much so. Though since this article pertains to a sell out in Manhattan, I'm taking it as a bunch of people, bored and listless due to the lack of power and transportation, figured "...hey, why not", and grabbed one for themselves.
You have no idea WTF you are babbling on about and before you respond with some more nonsense, I'm in NYC so I'm on the 'ground floor' of the disaster.

How do you find being a MacRumors newbie?

Not sure why I even bothered responding to this post really.
I'm sorry, I've been a member longer than you have. I just don't post about every little thing. Yes, I had tried one. I bought 2 of them that morning. Calm down.
