    The mini retina is 331g which is 23g more than the original mini, do you think this will be noticeable in real life?

    No. My iPad Mini is always in it's case anyway so it's heavier. If I did notice a difference I would just get a lighter case.

    Many people will be able to.

    To make a comparison, it will weigh like a cheap plastic watch sold in Walmart. Sine it is nearly 8% increase of the total weight! you might notice it.

    If the original weight is, say 831g or about 1.5 lb, it would be hard to notice.

    Another comparison: cellular version is always couple grams heavier than wifi version, but the difference is small, most people can't tell the difference.
