Just super excited to have this device. I got the original ipad and took it back the next day. I just didn't care for it much, it was kind of heavy, unatural to hold. I ended up getting a 10'' android tablet to use for school although I hardly did. I changed schools and their online app was only for the ipad, so I checked out the mini. I loved the way it felt in my hand, so light and thin!! I was debating a 7 inch android before I knew about the ipad only app. The nexus 7 is $100 cheaper, but it's a $200 mistake if I don't find it user friendly. I took the jump with the ipadmini and couldn't be happier, I am a tablet person now!! It is so easy to use right out of the box, already charged and everything! It fits in all my purses, including my date night ones. It is comfortable viewing size for games and movies, with great speakers.
