    Really on the fence. Want one but am afraid the lack of retina is gonna bother me. What's an Applechick to do?

    Depends how badly you want it. I use an iPad 2 with no problems and the mini screen is going to be somewhat better than that, so I'd say go for it. It'll give you an excuse to buy a 4 later when you decide you have to have the Retina Display. Safety in numbers.

    I bought the iPad mini yesterday and I love it. It doesn't have the retina display but that isn't noticeable at all. I've been watching movies and surfing websites and I don't see any difference between this and my iPhone 4S.. except for the larger screen. I think too many people are making too big a deal about the lack of retina on the mini.

    You get 14 days to return it to an apple store if you don't like it (if you buy it from apple). You get slightly longer if you buy it from them online. I get 60 days if I buy from best buy but I'm one of their special customers.

    The mini is the real deal. It plays games better than the full sized iPads. It is easier to hold if put in a case, IMO. Not having retina is not bothering me. My retina iPad is on charge as I will use it tomorrow at work.

    I feel the same way, but some people need to have that super-rich-retina display to satisfy there needs (what ever they may be) but the mini provides the quality that suites me and I will NOT be returning mine. It's so nice to be developing wallpapers on a screen like this so I can show people and get there opinions. Love the Mini and Always will.
