Hello everyone!! For the past I tried to decide wheat her get the mini or not... So I decided to get it. I got it. After seeing so many threads about it how bad the screen is or or how slow it is, I wanted to change my mind. Th screen is perfect!!! Don't know what's wrong with your people's eyes... Sound is so good (speakers). Is has 512 ram? Well it doesn't feel like it and it does not even compare to iPad 2. It is much,much better. The mini is not a downgrade so you won't be disappointed in it. For all of you haters out here!! Good luck in your life!!
