Price (apple gouging customers big time because they know they can). Lack of retina display. (I was on the fence for a while with this). No Camera flash. No black front with aluminum back (not a show stopper). The above are my reasons for not purchasing an iPad mini. I am looking forward to seeing what Apple will trot out for the second version next year. If they have retina display and a flash at the current pricing I will purchase one. Anyone else with a similar opinion? What are your reasons for not buying one?
