Detailed review
I've had a love and dis-love (don't want to say hate) relationship with iPads. This will be the third one in two years I've bought and returned in less than 2 weeks. The first two I had were the full size iPads, and this one is the mini with Retina.

When I returned the first two, I thought it was too big, and was confused going between my iPhone and iPad with notifications un-even on both (maybe it's my own OCD). Then I thought finally, the Mini was here in a retina form and I'd be good. I liked it, but wasn't in love with it, and still think the size is a bit too big to go with one hand.

I think overall, the iPad just doesn't work for me as a person. I think I can get by with my phone and Air. But I know plenty of others who love it!
