    Don't have iPad mini :( but am reading the thread to see some opinions!
    From the pictures it looks a bit plasticy and not quite as sleek as full size iPad. Also a bit of a turnoff is the screen is not retina... :(

    It's aluminum, not plastic

    It is one awesome piece of hardware created again by Apple not only super light but easy to hold Perfect and that is just the out side

    I clearly understand that, I am just pointing out the initial appearance gathered from the photographs on the page dedicated to iPad mini on Apple.com.

    To me it is way sleeker than the full size iPads.

    Got mine today


    I went from retina iPad 3 to the Samsung note 10.1 what a mistake !

    Note 10.1 was returned for refund and I got the mini instead

    Love it ! Only downside is the screen after using retina
    What's weird most apps look fantastic so do the pics but the apps pages are where I notice the quality , pics look as sharp as the retina so do most apps

    I'm happy with my purchase and will stick with this one till a retina mini is released

    It is a bit thinner. And much lighter, naturally.

    But it's a tad bit harder to pick up due to the more round edge. But if you're lucky enough to have long fingers such as myself, I can grasp the mini with one hand off a flat surface.

    Got mine Friday. Black 32gig and I love it, fits perfectly in my hand and I have no issues with the thin bezel. Coming from an Ipad 1 I am happy with the screen, I have a Nexus 7 and although its a higher resolution the Ipad mini has better colour and contrast.

    My one concern is I have a small area at the top in portrait sides in landscape that seems darker, it's not noticeable most of the time but it tends to show up on white backgrounds in landscape mode. Anyone else have this? It's not a deal breaker but if its unusual I'll get a replacement.

    Overall very happy the extra size compared to 7" tablets is great just looks and feels better, all my apps work great and it's great to have them back after my Ipad 1 was stolen last week, now to get the new Ipad.

    Also are we likely to get a full case as I would prefer that to the cover.
