I got the iPad 2 recently, only because I already have a few 7" tablets... I much prefer the smaller form factor for most uses though. I don't regret getting the 2 but I played with a couple minis recently in the store and I have to admit... I think an iPad mini is probably in my near future. They say this and that about the screen and price but I found the screen to be more than adaquite (even impressive actually) and the price seems manageable enough... I will be strongly considering the mini but keeping my iPad 2 for games and some browsing when I want the larger screen.
