    Its OLD. Its slower than the iPad 2/3/4 so its not as good. Just pay that little more and get the big brother iPad2 or even more and get the iPad4.
    Or pay a lot less and get the same size Android which is more powerful.

    iPad Mini is a joke, thats all. Proof Apple dont care about the devices and they are just in it for the money.
    It amazes me how ignorant you are. 1st how is something with the same hardware as an iPad 2 slower than an ipad2?

    A lot of people don't buy an iPad because of its size and weight. This fills the gap.

    Lastly. Saying a company is only in it for the money is the dumbest thing to ever say. What for profit company is not in it for the money? Lol.

    I'm in love with my mini. My iPad 2 feels so bulky in comparison. But since the mini has no jailbreak my 2 is kind of like my "gaming" machine. Lol

    Serious? Only an idiot buys a brand new car with their own money, even pre-reg and you're looking at massive discount.

    +1. It's a rip off at that price. I can't imagine Apple had the brassies to release it at that price point. Totally not worth it. Except of course for the "having to have newest and shiniest from Apple" syndrome.

    Name one thing unique to the mini that I need if I already have an iPhone and an iPad3 in a folio case. Don't say portability. An iPad in a folio is very portable. I mean I knew years ago the mini was coming cause the normal sized iPads are pretty unwieldy and heavy to old in one hand. But as soon as you put it in a folio at problem goes away.

    Subs, dude.. The only way to deal with trolls is to not feed them. Every time you react you embolden them. Put this idiot on ignore.

    I asked my two mates what they were doing with their old iPads. One of them was throwing his in the trash.

    HALF OF IPAD MINI BUYERS ARE THROWING THEIR OLD IPAD IN TRASH.

    Unless someone really likes cars, all they need is a transport vehicle. Same thing with Apple products.

    Apple & Samsung are in it for the money because they are both Businesses. Apple are not a charity. They don't give stuff away because they have share holders it exactly the same way as Samsung.

    Now when you have something constructive to add to the debate, feel free to post something but opening your mouth just to slag off Apple is getting really boring and just shows a complete lack of IQ.

    Right now,

    I work in a large retail chain in the U.K who sell Apple / Amazon / Samsung tablets and the Apple outsell EVERYTHING else by a factor of at least 10/1 ( that's 10 Apple I pads for every 1 Amazon / Samsung for the stoopid brigade) and its down to 2 things

    Build quality (they feel well built)
    The User experience (they are nice to use and easy to learn)

    Apple don't just churn out any old tat. It's well built and does what it says on the tin an Apple fans and people who appreciate good quality will buy them.

    Simple

    Jolly
    I would also expect the return rate for non apple products is also higher, where I work we get all other makes back with what ever reason people can think of but rarely see a iPhone or iPad returned!

    Okay c'mon you guys. If you don't like the news then don't read it. And this is an Apple fan site. Why are you android fanboys posting how much better the nexus whatever is. Go to xda forums or something. Idc if you like apple and android. Quit posting trash all over.

    Umm..survey needs more people. I don't NEED an iPad Mini but i sure will get one because I WANT one. Its a choice just like any other device out there for sale. My choice is to buy one. If i don't like it, I can sell it and recoup most if not all the $$ spent. That is all for now..:]
