    I think we will just keep to the "swizzle" as it has a "variety" of meanings! ;) thanks, sci

    The mini is lighter than the Google nexus 7, and it is light! I'm going to love this thing. I do wish it had retina but that likely be hard to do with current screen tech at the price points.

    Turns out the Mini is just a little bit less in width than a standard DVD case. So, if you want to get a feel for how it will fit in your hand, grab one. The mini is just a bit longer than a DVD case, but half as thick.

    I wear pleated dress pants at work which makes for a roomier fit for my generous form AND I bet a pocket wide enough to hold the mini.

    I imagine that a lot of the weight might be taken by the battery, so other tablets might be lighter but maybe not have such good battery life. I find the weight of my mini2 acceptable.
