And will I buy the ipad mini now? Yes, because only a stupid man would wait a year for something that he knows he wants. Provided he has the money for it ;-)
Yeah, I like your attitude. Just get it, one year is a long time to wait, and the size and weight are oh so good. You can always upgrade 2 years from now. And you never know when the ipad mini will become retina, may be 2 years anyway. Retina requires a huge battery, heavy screen, and more cpu power. So when an ipad mini retina comes out, who knows.
You did the right thing, just buy it, and have fun, worry about it later when the time comes. Congrats, and have fun with it.
