If it where not for my recently purchased iPad 3, I would have a mini, but get a chance to play with one every time I see it. One thing I noticed that does irk me about the mini: Performance. I notice a level of lagginess and jittery operation on display mini's the iPad 3 does not have. Anyone else notice that? Otherwise, the small non-retina screen is not an issue for me. Yes, I see it is a little pixelated, but I can still see text clearly.
