I haven't ordered yet but I've decided on the 64Gb Cellular Mini in Gold.

Just won a universal case on eBay for now. I'm wanting the same case as I have on my iPad 3 if I can get it (unbranded from eBay but I like the design.) Mini 5 cases hadn't appeared at last checking.

I ordered the Mini. Went with 64 GB SG WiFi-only, and an ESR Urban Premium Folio case.

Gold 64gb Mini 5 wifi + cell. Can't wait. Sold my mini 4 around a month ago and I miss it, even though I didn't use it much as it was so slow compared to my 11" pro. Will be nice to have a fast mini!

Every comment was an iPad mini purchase! I want one, but decided to get a used 6th gen from someone upgrading (likely to a mini, haha)

Base model in Gold to replace a Mini 2. I didn't want to pay for cellular just to get GPS. I considered 256 GB but I don't need that much storage - I'm coming from 16 GB so 64 should feel huge. My Mini is scheduled to arrive between April 9 - 12. I guess a lot of people are ordering these things.

As of yet, none of them. I am looking at the new iPad Air with 256 GB but I may wait a few weeks to see if any problems pop up. I'll admit I'm afraid of how thin these things have become, especially with the Pro models having problems being easily bent. I'd prefer something a couple of mills thicker with more battery space rather than trying to impress people that it is less than 7 mm thick. My friends, or me for that matter, don't care how thin it is after a certain point.

There really is a such thing as too thin. With the new iPad pro’s being 5.9mm, that is really thin for sure.

As long as you don’t sit on one you’ll be okay. I have never seen a real bent iPad in person though. I’ve handled at least 10 iPad Pro 3rd gens, and I’ve owned 3. Never seen a bent one.

Getting back on topic, it seems that the iPad mini 5 is extremely popular! Especially with the specs it has.

I currently have an iPad Air 2, but the battery life has dropped considerably. I use it quite a bit when I travel, as I am usually in small towns for work and little or no access to tv shows or movies in small no-name hotels so I always bring 5 or 6 movies and usually end up watching at least 2 or 3 per trip. I like the iPad Air size, and 256 GB I could preload a lot movies and shows. I could also afford to put my music on the iPad with that much memory, and it means my Bose Quiet Comfort headphones would still work. I can't use my older Bose with my iPhone anymore easily. I don't fault my current iPad for its rundown battery, I have used the heck out of it.

I had the iPhone 6 plus that had bending problems. The screen got unresponsive and the top 1/4 inch looked like old time tv static. It took a while for Apple to admit that there might be a problem and longer to agree to fix it. Although Apple didn't bother 'fixing' mine they just replaced it with a new one, which I was happy about at the time. I don't want to go through that again though if I can avoid it.
