What about a positive thread in here for once?! Last year when I got my mini, I realized that this was the size iPads should have been all along. When the retina mini came out this year, I swore I wasn't going to buy it. I was perfectly happy with my mini and told myself I wouldn't now to consumerism for once.... Then I went and looked at the retina mini in the store, and I fell in love with how gorgeous the screen was. Truthfully, the screen is amazing. So alas, apple got me again. I sold my mini and bought this retina and couldn't be happier. Not only is the screen crisp and much easier on the eyes but the increased speed is very noticeable.
