A dirty thought...

The reg size iPads are heavy and somewhat cumbersome. This mini is perfect for one handed viewing and the speakers are improved.

I plan on selling this ASAP when the retina comes out so maybe that could be a selling point. I'll tell people mine has been disinfected. Lol

I wouldn't want to buy a used mini, think of where its been and what it's touched

iPad Mini is a great bathroom companion.

Bedroom companion too?

Come one, someone must have tested that the second this thing was released! This thing feels lighter than the iPhone 4

It brings a whole new meaning to screen protectors.

Surely though with the mythical eye sight reduction, you'd still be better off with a full size screen? Just rest it on a ledge if it's too heavy.

You might want to use this logic for used keyboards and mice.

Reason #2: I'll never buy a used iPad or iPhone. The fact it was likely someone's constant bathroom companion is gross enough. Now thinking that it was used to......yuck!!!

Yeah but it's not like we're hand holding the display or something.

You may get some funny looks from attendants when you wheel in your 50" plasma and an extension.
