I think it's great. Possibly better than a full-sized iPad, if only because you can more easily hold it while typing. |
Since it is pocketbook sized I also find it better to read on it than on the iPad.
Can't comment on the lower resolution, since I never used a retina screen. But then again, holding it at normal distance I can barely make out the pixels so it's good enough for me.
