    I've played FIFA on it, its fine although maybe feels a touch not smooth enough to me perhaps...

    every other game i've tried has been great, was playing mass effect infiltrator last night and it was very smooth

    I'll let you know but at the moment tracking is not available from the apple website.

    I'll also let you the know the moment they attempt to deliver it.

    and when I first turn it on

    When I first watch some porn on it

    When I first realise I've made a terrible mistake :)

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Had mine long enough now for the shiny shiny factor to have worn off (thankfully the black chamfer is still unscathed) and I'm totally sold on the form factor. After the initial uurgh at the resolution, the weight and convenience completely outweigh the loss of retina. I do find myself using Reader in Safari a little more (and also that handy javascript bookmarklet to quickly increase text size) as small text suffers the worse. I can read it fine, but it's a little ugly, and larger text makes the pixels less noticeable.

    I was previously completely disinterested in iOS games, but the mini has totally rekindled it, much more pleasant device for gaming than the biggie imo.

    I suppose if your iPad never leaves the house and you don't use a laptop much, the 9.7" is still the preferred option, but I doubt I'll be going near a bigger iPad again. MBA + mini is a nice combo. Only hope the retina mini has a better quality screen along with higher resolution, the colours are pretty drab compared with my 3rd gen, and positively mundane next to the samoled+ screen in my old Tab 7.7.

    Do you also find that the screen is horrendously reflective? even indoors if i am watching a video i can see my face in it.

    @THFourteen

    Yeah, terribly reflective. When you can control the lighting it's not so bad, but at work I discovered I had persistent walk on roles in Dexter, Homeland and Sons of Anarchy. Who knew!

    Uurgh. I see tonnes of people with bubble/hair ridden screen protectors and I always think WHHHHHY?!! 3 iPhones, 4 iPads, all naked, and I've never had a single screen scratch, and I hardly baby them.

    Although a professionally installed, flawless anti glare one would improve it I suppose.

    not fussed about the screen scratching (although i did once end up with a massive scratch on my ipad 2 after i leant it to someone, think they had a ring on) which i was upset about.

    but if it improves on the glare...

    Once the iPad mini has a resolution that doesn't offend my eyes (not really, but it is quite noticeable unfortunately...) and the MacBook Air has better graphics performance (they are still using those Intel HD Graphics 4000 chips?!), they will be a match made in heaven.

    I know the resolution is a bit poor, but the colours are equally as bad too.

    Trust Apple to show both the iPad and the mini in their TV adverts with the two sharing exactly the same eye-popping colours ... they are totally misleading!

    *tuts*

    Stop grinning while your masturbating then.

    Give yourself Ł5 or ˝ gig, you're worth it.

    I don't "do" touch control games. They always seem shit to me apart from the RTS style games that are done right like osmos HD.

    The only games I own on iOS are flights control and civ rev.

    That breakfast TV money guy will tell you that buying direct tickets is much more expensive than stopping mid-way ;)
