    I know I want a touchID but the retina mini is fantastic and a welcomed much needed change. Had white mini and got space gray retina mini. I gotta say, having a mini with the specs of the air is amazing. It's my lil power rocket. This will def hold me off for next year. Everyone should get one jus saying. :cool: :D

    Thank you for posting. Seriously. There is to much negativity going around between the gamut and the tint and the wash and the this and the that. It's nice to hear from a happy customer.

    It's simple... You will not replicate what you had before. Having 2 exact tint from the factory line is virtually impossible. There's so much more to life than worrying about the tint of my mini. I say just enjoy its greatness! Lol. This goes from a guy who's a perfectionist when it comes to his i-devices

    Tint- not bad
    Color gamut- perfect

    Ipad rMini- fantastic

    I'm no expert but the Air looks like it has about 500 gamuts whereas the rMini seems to have only about 250 gamuts. Much lower gamuts per metre. I'd say people have the right to complain when it's missing so many gamuts.

    I say we get a review thread going, it'd be nice to hear some feedback, positive or negative, so long as it's honest.

    I bought the Air and returned it because it was till too big. Bought the retina mini today. I love it. Only wish they had the cellular versions in stock but I'm contemplating just keeping the wifi. My iPhone 5s is always on me anyway.

    I've always had the full sized ipad and today i got my first Mini. The retina screen is amazing, the size is perfect... always felt the ipad was just a wee bit too big. Love how light it is, and the WiFi really is 2x as fast! At least for downloads... uploads are about the same.

    I would like the fingerprint scanner but unlike my iphone i never use my ipads anywhere except at home, on my couch. So security isn't as important.

    Just got my wife one and she loves it. I think it's a great and about time them put some power in it. I always felt the 1st mini was so underpowered and outdated the day it came out.

    This. I'm debating just keeping the wifi only version myself. GPS chip is nice but not sure if it's a necessity.

    The screen is absolutely gorgeous and surprisingly the stereo speakers sound better than the original ipad mini.

    Only thing I'm debating about now is whether is it worth it to fork out $220 for this screen upgrade. I don't really benefit much from the more powerful CPU with my everyday task. And the heat and additional weight is kinda putting me off a bit.

    I understand the excitement over a new product (iPhone, iPad, first car, HDTV) because they really do alter your life. But I've never understood when people get that excited when a product gets a spec bump but doesn't actually offer something "new".

    I know this sounds cynical but I currently own both the Air and rMini so I'm not slamming anything or anyone. I'm just curious what exactly can you do on a Retina iPad Mini that is so "amazing" that you couldn't do on the previous one? Despite the 2gen old processor and non-retina screen, the original iPad Mini was a very capable machine that deserved an upgrade but didn't necessarily "require" one.

    Wanted to get the 1st gen iPad mini but i knew they were gonna release the retina one next so I waited, and they did. I like the fact that they didn't put touch id into the iPad mini though, weird as it may sound, cause it would have looked weird with my iPhone 5 (which doesn't have it as well).

    I still have the original. I need to sell it to get return. But yes I have no problems overheating

    Some folks don't have the first Mini! :D

    What exactly can an iPad Air do that an iPad 1 can't? They both have screens, touch input and a CPU. I've never understood why people upgrade from a perfectly working iPad 1 to an iPad Air. I mean they're both tablets so going to an iPad Air isn't going to change your life. People should only be allowed to buy things that completely change their lives! I wish I could force people in to buying only what I personally value!
