    • New A7 Chip 64-Bit CPU & M7 Motion Coprocessor
    • GPU is twice as fast as previous gen and 8x faster than original iPad
    • 10-hour battery life - no loss in battery life

    And we don't have to wait until next year for the Retina iPad mini, it goes on sale in November. At the same time the original iPad mini has been reduced in price to $299.00 for the 16GB WiFi model.

    Very impressed with this... most of this stuff was still a secret so Apple still has it. And this is not just an incremental upgrade, its a pretty big upgrade, IMHO.

    I'm a bit underwhelmed.
    I was hoping for a digitizer this time around.
    Faster/lighter just isn't enough for me.

    I'll keep my Retina iPad 3.

    JMHO
