I know this has been discussed previously, but I always took the discussions with a grain of salt because some of the comments seemed off the wall. After having my mini for a few weeks, though, I can attest to the fact that this thing gets EPIC battery life. After over a day of standby time and 9 hours of use, I'm still at 50%. This includes lots of web browsing, watching a couple videos, texting, downloading apps and playing graphics intensive games. I'm sure this is because of the 32nm A5 which has been well documented to get great battery life, but to experience it for myself is something else altogether. VERY impressed.
