I'm not too impressed with the mini, I was thinking about getting my wife one,but I think she will stick with her current tablet, she has the Samsung Tab 10.1 now. As far as the retina display, imo its all just word hype. All a "retina" display is, is a higher then average ppi or pixel per inch.
When it comes to tablets or anything that you are really close to ppi is the name of the game. The higher the ppi the better the picture. I actually like Apple products, I plan on getting my wife the Iphone 5 next month. I will probably follow suit, however imo the ipad mini is laughable from a spec standpoint.
The only thing it has going for it is build quality, and boy do you pay for it. You can get a better tablet in almost every category for over 100 dollars less in the Nexus 7. It has 216 ppi compared to 163 on the mini. If you already have an Ipad I would question why you would want a mini, its an inferior product, if you want the smaller tablet, but want to stay apple, I would hold out for next year when they actually make it worth buying.
Steve Jobs would be very displeased, just saying.
