I bought the black 32g iPad mini today. I wanted the 16g, but BestB was out of those. A friend from work went with me and he bought the same. He is 40 years old. We both took them in to work with us after lunch. Everyone wanted to play with it, so I passed it around the room. The general consensus was that it was great. I don't have a problem with it being non-retina. It probably would be awesome if it was, though. While I cannot find a real gripe with it, I think it is going back tomorrow. At 45 years old, I have 20/20 distance and supposedly 20/20 near, but something is really wrong here. I am having a heck of a time adjusting to the size of the print. I compared it to my iphone 3gs and iPad 1. I don't have high expectations with the 3GS, so I accept the small print. The iPad 1 appears to be smallest size tablet that is acceptable for my eyesight. My macbook pro 13" is fine too. I think a 7" device of any size is probably going to be too small for me to read comfortably. Again, nothing against the iPad mini. I wish I could keep it but I could feel the eyestrain with 5 minutes. Anyone else, with tired old eyes, notice the same thing?
