    I'm picking up an iPad mini retina the minute I can get my hands on one, but supply chain rumors suggest they will be in short supply initially

    Retina display 2048X1536
    A7 processor (possibly M7 coprocessor)
    1 GB RAM
    8 megapixel cam w/ image stabilization
    no touch ID

    Wonder if Apple will finally put a usb port on the iPad. Probably not but I am still holding out a little hope they will.

    what for? physical transfers are old-fashioned. if you have transfer it via a cable you might as well use a droid.

    dont care about the touch id.
    A7 and M7 are the selling points for me.

    I was watching walking dead on my mini last night. higher resolution is not going to make those zombies look any better than they already do,

    a USB port would be awesome for movies, but it's not going to happen, at least not this time around

    after having retina on the iPhone, the resolution on the current mini doesn't bug the shit out of you? it does me, but you're right movies aren't bad

    nah. the ipad screen is small enough that i don't really notice it. i think its the same resolution as the ipad 2 and that was fine for me also. i just want the faster processors.
