I lost my first Mini, and bought a 64GB black model last weekend. The guys at Best Buy said no retina Mini until 2014, and I have a 45 day return period. I bought a nice iFrogz case to go with it, and spent 20 minutes on a perfect screen protector install (bought for $1, but NICE!). The current Mini's display is fine by me, but a little faster page loading would be nice. Later in November sounds like a month from now to me, so I'll have to decide if it's worth upgrading. Oh well... The iPad 5 (refuse to call it Air), looks nice. Weight reduction hit the mark nicely, but it's still too big for my front pockets.
