After reading a lot of opinions on the interwebs I decided to pick up a 16Gb Black iPad mini. I am so pleased with the size of the device. IMO it is the perfect size, and is very light compared to my wife's iPad 2. At the same resolution as the iPad 2 I thought they would look the same. However because the iPad mini has the same resolution as the iPad 2 and is scaled down in size, it appears to be a sharper display. Don't hesitate to buy one if you don't have one. I refuse to use the iPad 2 because if feels very heavy and awkward to hold now that I experienced the iPad mini!
