    Good for you, Ski! I think you'd notice the retina, but there are other important things in life beyond retina.

    Thanks, AQ!

    I just couldn't wait any longer, I've been chomping at the bit for this mini for a long time! Maybe I would have noticed the Retina display-but that's ok. The stats on the current mini sounds just as impressive!

    For what it's worth, I have had the iPad mini for a while and now have an iPad 4. Despite being a picky and impatient person who specializes in graphic artwork.. the lack of retina on the iPad mini isn't noticeable to me. I have a feeling some folks over-emphasise the situation and try to portray the iPad mini as "lacking" a vital feature. Making mountains out of mole hills and all.

    It's probably eyesight differences.

    I have an iPad 2, iPad 4, iPhone 4S, touch 5 and a friend loaned me a mini iPad while traveling for months. I can instantly see the differences among all the screens. Just using IPF, I can see the diffs in characters and logos.

    I can live with a fuzzier screen on iPad 2 since it's an older device. But given the choice, I'd rather have retina and newer guts on any new purchase.

    I'm surprised how little I've used the borrowed mini. (My friend even let me wipe it to factory settings and load all my apps.) I figure it's because its primary advantage to me -- weight -- is not useful because my friend's mini is wifi-only, so I don't take it out. At home, I'd rather use a full-size screen, unless reading a book, in which case my Kindle Fires both have better screens than the mini.

    Love my mini so much. Best impulse buy ever. Bought it at a Best Buy vending machine deal at LAX. Had an iPad 3 and Nexus 7 before it. Gladly sold both after this thing entered my life. I use it for everything and the weight/battery life are the selling points for me. The mini rocks!
