I'm not much of an Apple fan (I have an iPod Nano & my wife has an iPhone 3GS), but I'll have to admit the Mini looks very appealing to me. So it only has 169 dpi, it will still look good. I like that it's wider than my Nook and would be better for reading magazines (some of which aren't available on my Nook, but are available for iPad). The CPU is fast enough for it.
I could see myself using one, but I can't see myself paying the "Apple Tax". Maybe someone will buy me one or I'll trade something for one. If not, I'll stick with my Nook Tablet until I can save up enough dough for a Nexus 7.
