I envy you guys....you make your minds up and go for it. I have been torn between the ipad air and Rmini and was waiting to handle the latter before deciding. Today I had a play wth the MiniR..it's gorgeous, size and weight are right, screen is awesome. But....and this is pretty obvious.. Reading is much more pleasant on the Air....and my eyesight is fairly normal. Im disappointed since I expected to fall in love with the miniR instantly but reading a magazine on newstand gave me pause....the same magazine reads so much better on the Air. Even the keyboard on the Air is more suited to the size of my fingers. Looks like I am talking myself into getting the Air but all these posts on screen issues, I am wondering if I should wait for later batch when they have sorted out the right suppliers. Hell, I wish the MiniR worked for me....its great on looks and size but the Air just might be more enjoyable to use for me. Now I need a coffee....should I get an espresso or a cappuccino....ohhh why is this so difficult?
