    I've got one on order for my wife, safe to say we will see the same RAM problems and screen problems with the new mini as with the Air?

    Those with the new retina minis, please chime in with how your screen is and if you are having any issues with RAM/crashing.

    Don't know about actual problems, but for sure expect the tons of threads about complaints about problems....

    Haven't used mine for too long yet, but the only issue I noticed so far is a piece of dust under the screen. :(

    Yeah, I'd definitely hold off on placing an order for any White/Silver, 16GB, LTE models as they're likely all defective. Once I have mine I'll post back with the all-clear and then you guys can order.

    ;)

    Just got my 16gb wifi retina mini and the yellow tint is worse than the air I returned. It's all over the screen Prather than just bottom left. When you tilt it down and look at it from an almost flat angle, it's pure white, bring it up and it turnips yellow. I'm really starting to dislike apple. This is inexcusable for such a gigantic company that places emphasis on quality. I may return this for a nexus 8 when it's released.

    I think you're the first person to post about the tilt thing. My Air has a slight yellow hue on one side, but that yellow turns blue when it's tilted closer to my chin! I've asked this in other threads, but has anyone here ever seen another IGZO display? According to an October 2013 Gizmodo article, IGZO displays were almost entirely unseen outside the Asian market. This could very well be what IGZO displays look like.... :confused:

    I have yellow tint issues on my mini retina. Also looks dull compared to air. And the ram issues are still present since that has more to do with lack of memory, it seems.

    Internet Truth #342

    If one person online is happy with a product then the reader assumes one person is happy with that product. If one person online has an issue with a product then the reader assumes it's widespread and should be subject to manufactures recall.

    I've already returned one rMini due to screen tint issues/unevenness. My replacement is barely noticeable and I'm okay with any tint variance enough to keep it...the guys at the store were real nice about my exchange so I'm a happy camper.

    I haven't noticed the washed out colors like others are saying.

    What's Internet Truth #1 ??? :D

    Seriously, has anyone else tilted their screen and noticed the yellow hue disappears, or even turns blue? I'm happy with my Air's display, and noticed the tilting thing a couple of days ago. My keyboard is on the right hand side of my screen as I type this, and tilting it toward my chin makes it change from slight blue to slight yellow. I'm talking about a 10-20 degree tilt, and nothing dramatic. Do people who see the yellow tint view their display straight on?

    Soooooo.... Has anyone ever seen an IGZO display prior to the Air and rMini?

    There is an inverse correlation between your Internet speed and need to finish work on a deadline.

    Not surprised to hear of screen unevenness issues. This is the same tech that's used in the Air.

    But be careful if you raise any issues - be ready for a horde of people talking out of their collective rear ends and claiming you have OCD, etc. lol
