    I can't speak for iPad Mimi, as i've never met her. :D However, I can say that I still use the original iPad mini and find no noticeable difference between it and the new iPad mini retina. I've been very pleased with it and it has replaced 85-90% of my need for a computer.

    I recently bought a 1st Gen mini for $199 and returned it. I wanted to like it but the screen and overall performance was lacking.

    It still works well. Of course the Retina Mini is just better in every way but my iPad Mini (non-retina) still gets the job done for now. I'm not really a gamer, use mine for reading eBooks, web surfing, email, and such.

    Though I've been scouring my local craigslist ads for a retina mini lately mainly because I just want the crisper screen and I know around this time of the year people are selling theirs for pretty low prices.

    Congradulations. I loved my original Mini, and after I upgraded, I was sorry that I did. It is a worthy device. Enjoy!!

    Don't get it. I would recommend investing a bit more on the 2nd gen. It's lacking performance. I use it mainly for note taking at work and book reading. When I run games like Injustice, you can tell it is struggling.

    I love mine, but sometimes I can't stand how my App Store lags. I'm holding on to it until the next few iterations though.

    If you want to play games or work with visual media get the newest iPad.
    For everything else (emails, browsing, media consumption, iwork, office,...) the ipad mini is more than fine.

    Keep this in mind the 1st gen iPad mini is running over 3.5 year old hardware.

    I plan to upgrade both as well, but the mini will be the first since I use it the most. I doubt I'll go for the newest iPad rumored to be larger than the Air at 12.9 inches.
