iPad Mini unwrapped So I purchased the iPad mini last week, one for my girlfriend then one for myself. I am impressed. I also own a Kindle Fire HD and the screen is almost an entire inch bigger but they both take up the same space. The only downside I would say is the screen resolution seems to be a bit bleh. I would prefer to do my netflixing, etc. on my Kindle. Another plus is that it optimally fits webpages, and the convenience of its size. The pros definitely outweigh the cons for me as I do most of my business on the go.
