Since I have to wait until the 26th for my mini to come in I played around with one at best buy today to see how I like it. They had it right next to the iPad 4. I have to say I'm very impressed with the mini. I don't no what people are complaining about the screen. It looked great to me and much better then the iPad 2. I had an iPad 3 since March until I sold it last week. I think I'm going to really like the mini. It seemed just as fast as my iPad 3 and it should since the iPad 2 in some cases was actually faster then the 3. Its funny listening to people complain about the screen when its not an issue. I see myself getting even more use out of the mini then i did with the 3.
