The rMini blows the Mini away, hands down. Speed: Awesome. I can load MacRumors in not even 2 seconds. Of course if you're visiting a website that's server is based of an 1998 connection, it won't do well with that. Display: What many have been waiting for. I can say the display definitely lives up to expectations. I compare it to my Mini, and that just looks, well, blurred. Thickness and Heaviness: Thickness remains the same as the old Mini, but at first hold, it feels SLIGHTLY heavier. Once you use it for a few hours you won't even notice the difference. Color Gamut (Gasp!): I'm not an OCD-freak, so the "lesser" RGB does not bug me. I honestly think it looks more natural. But hey, opinions don't exist on the Internet, right? - We got Retina display - We were surprised by same specs as the Air What are we still missing? Is it the price range? Are people still going out and buying iPad's when they don't have the money to? Is it the color gamut? Were you surprised at having the screen calibrated the same way as it's predecessor? If you want the Air go for the Air. Nobody is stopping you. If you want to switch to a bar of soap (you know what I mean) go for the bar of soap. I love my rMini, and don't see why others don't either.
