    I sold my iPad 3 last week for the iPad mini simply for the size. The lower resolution isn't a problem for me. I finally depleted my iPad mini battery after 13 hours of usage! it surprised me when it finally died. I was trying to drain the battery since it's brand new. Thankfully, because of its size I can put it in my back pocket and carry it everywhere and not have to worry about the battery life.

    13 hours is great!! Seems to be about the norm for the mini.

    I am loving mine. -I'll never go back to using the regular iPad again. Lack of retina doesn't bother me, but we all know it will have it eventually.

    Even without the retina display, the iPad mini is proving to be an awesome tablet. I've used my iPad mini more in the past 24 hours than I used my ipad 3 in two weeks.

    The battery life is one of the features of the iPad mini I'm enjoying the most.

    of course, the battery is good because the screen is hideous.
