    I finally decided to sell my 32gb nexus 7 (great device) for the iPad Mini after playing with one in my local Apple store.

    Only got the 16gb mini as its all I need.
    After a weeks use I'm LOVING the mini!!

    Screen looks great and not being retina doesn't make much difference, great app selection and all I've tried work well on the mini and using the mini for web browsing is a joy

    Very happy with my mini and only way ill sell it is to upgrade to a mini 2 later in 2013 :)

    Love my new mini... Been browsing the web mostly with some light YouTube and ebook reading. Also use it for email and sync with google calendar. It's a great device from build quality to form factor to IOS.

    Great, sharp screen - think retina would be overkill. Good size easier to hold than full size ipad, easier to read than iphone. And to think Jobs was against it!!

    I would post my feelings about this device, but I've done so so many times that I feel I'd be overdoing it if I did it yet again. :)

    I have a white 16GB wifi/4g Mini and I love it. The screen is fine. I can notice a difference with text being a little "fuzzy" but I've found zooming in does the trick.The portability factor makes up for this. Also, it's very easy to hold.

    I still use my larger ipad(mainly at home) but the Mini sees the majority of use. The battery life is fantastic.

    How do you use your iPad to sync with your Google calendar? I would like to know this as I have a Nexus 7 and Android phone along with an iPad 2.

    I just entered my google name and password for gmail into the email app for the ipad mini and for youtube app and it has been syncing automatically. You might have to have calendar sync turned on on both devices... Im not sure about that... but it works. Got a notification about a doctor appointment that was only entered on my phone, it showed up on my N7 and mini... (obviously you have to be connected to wifi or cellular to sync...)

    Edit: just checked my mini and all my appointments are indeed in the calendar app.

    I love my mini. Its basically the best gaming device I've ever owned. The performance of the older chip is just fine its smoother than my nexus 7 was. All games run smooth, many games on nexus 7 lagged. I just wish text was sharper but that'll come in due time with the iPad mini 2...and Steve jobs said 7 inchtablets are dead in the water, well I just sold my iPad 4 seeing as it was collecting dust.

    Love the mini with LTE. I've never had a couple of iPads in the past, but none had cellular. Size of the mini + LTE + city commute on the bus = awesome.

    The mini is great. Gaming is a joy, compared to a Tegra 2 tab and recently started using some Autodesk productivity tools that make the iPad mini really shine. l'm impressed with the level of 3d performance of this small device. Would be nice to have HDMI out and a SD card slot though. The frame is just too slick, making it very hard to operate without the protective case. A rubberized material would have been more convenient.

    Well you need that moolah to be a collector of electronic stuff. There seem to be, only a few, on this forum, but that need not concern us. They keep an eye out. They are right up with it. They read and ponder about the new stuff just in. They are onto all the new stuff actual and rumoured forever "kicking the tyres" of anything on the shelves that has finally appeared after reading the lengthy rumours. There are apparently instances where they have so much stuff they need to keep all that stuff purchased, new and old, in more than one house, yet they are seemingly adept at being able to use all that stuff pretty much at the same time. They can talk brand loyalty and just as easily indicate they could jump ship, depending on the new stuff that comes along.

    But what does it matter if someone feels the need for more than one iPad? It's none of our business. That should have no bearing on the enjoyment of ours. I'm enjoying mine. I hope you are enjoying yours.
