I have the original iPad. Actually both my husband and I have them. I have been thinking about getting a newer model but I was waiting until the time was right. When the mini came out I thought that would be a great size for so many things (reading, surfing the web or playing games). well, my husband surprised me with one for my birthday which is this coming Saturday. I can't believe how crisp the screen colors are and it is so fast. Even though it is only the 16gb one and wifi I am hoping that I won't want to put too much stuff on it to slow it down. My other pad is a 64 gb and almost filled up with apps and movies. I could watch movies for days with that guy.
A question about the screen on the mini. I put a screen protector (Zagg) on it and I notice that it will not respond very easily to a stylus. Has anyone else noticed this????
