"If the Mini had a retina display, I’d switch from the iPad 3 in a heartbeat. As it stands, I’m going to switch anyway. Going non-retina is a particularly bitter pill for me, but I like the iPad Mini’s size and weight so much that I’m going to swallow it."
Another point about the iPad mini that I was hoping to hear. I'm willing to bet by next year, a retina iPad mini will hit the stores and will appease all the retina junkies (like me) out there.
