I predict the next iPad Mini will be as powerful as the current iPad4, and that the iPad5 will be a powerhouse with the raw performance on par with the early Intel macs. The iPad4 already bests the Powermac G5 in geekbench.

iPad5 + airplay = your next game console.

And that software tweak works on the big iPad too. You can grab the edge of a 9.7 iPad screen and still scroll and etc.

And larger screen ... This is the same sort of tradeoff / differentiation that is seen with most electronics (e.g. Laptops)

Where are all the people who claimed it was technically impossible for a thin device to have a Retina display? And there was 'no way' there would be a Retina Mini in 2013?

Of course this was coming. I feel bad for all the iPad 4 buyers who got duped when a much lighter thinner device was in the pipeline.

And I'm really looking forward to all those 'the display isn't that bad' apologists fawning over the Retina Mini when it's released later this year.

The design alone will make the previous iPads look ancient on the first day. The same cannot be said for the last few generations. Form factor is massively important, and this is a brand new fresh look for the 9.7" iPad.

"Well, that's going a little far to say it instantly outdates the previous generations." No, it's really not. It's that big of a deal. The renderings even make it look like that. This is going to be the one to have.

Love the Mini, but would be willing to head back over to full size if it looks like this. I just wish they could slim down top and bottom iPhone bezels like Samsung does on Galaxy phones.

They should have released this design alongside the debut of the mini. Now, it's a bit anticlimactic since the mini would have featured the same design for nearly a year by the time this is released. That said, the difference in bezel size make the previous iPad iterations look ridiculous.

Yeah, that's the major impact spec for me ... while the exterior dimensions on the Mini are great, it's the weight that really amazes me, and really effects how I use a tablet (having to prop it up for long usage periods, etc.)

Yeah, if I were heading up the design/engineering, under 1lb would be my +minimum+ weight target, but would trying to hit ~400g (about 40% reduction of the current weight ... kind of assuming the Mini will have a little weight loss too, under 300g

It may look sleeker, but the thinner bezel on the mini is less practical when surfing. My thumbs are always accidentally hitting some ad in the margin, something that doesn't happen when I'm using the 3.

Also overall size isn't really an issue for my w/ the 9.7", weight it. The 2 was nearly perfect, and seems to me the real issue Apple needs to work on. I think the mini is so popular not just b/c it's less expensive, but because it's low weight.

Nice. Like that they finally shrunk the side bezels a bit. Looks a lot cleaner now. Now to debate whether or not to sell the iPad 3 for this one

Great render but I really REALLY wish ipad art would have more than 4 icons on the bottom - you can have up to 6 - with 4 it really just makes it look like a blown up iphone
