    Hi guys, just picked up a non retina mini to compliment my Air as this will be house bound and wanted a travel tablet. I know the original mini is old news now but i'm really impressed with it for £226.

    Reason for my post is just to say that the logo on the back of the mini is now a cut-out style logo rather than the printed on type the mini used to have.
    Seems like they have unified the case design with the retina mini, I checked my serial and its a week 41 (October 2013).

    Screen is completely uniform with no bleed/dust/colour cast etc.

    Not the most exciting post in the world but thought i'd mention the change as I felt it was the only thing that slightly cheapened the aesthetic on the mini.

    Cheers :apple:

    The difference is that the old logo on the back was lower-res. :D

    I'd add the space grey seems much more durable than the slate black mini 1... Those sides dented and scratched pretty easily.

    Indeed, let's hope the new logo don't suffer the gamut problem :D

    You can totally see that the space grey is washed out compared to the slate black.
