Thoughts?

Who wants one?

I do have a current iPad, but that's tempting as a replacement... it would be a nicer size for carrying it around. :)

The Apple things are just your normal household "completers" - not a life necessity, but sneakers is a completely different issue.
You must have a happy life, eh?

I'll have to hold it before I judge. I feel like 7.9" might be a tad much. I've used the Nexus 7, and in comparison the iPad Mini looks a little wide. The screen is almost a full inch bigger. Not quite sure how the bezels compare.

No I am just a realist. ;) Most women are frugal and expect their husbands to be as frugal as possible. Asking for all these things would put a guy in the dog house and give you a good talking to about money. :p

True, but remember -- the Nexus 7 has a 16:9 screen while the iPad mini's is a 4:3 screen.

16:9 aspect ratios make a tablet a lot larger than they need to be, and, in my humblest of opinions, I think Apple got it right in saying that 16:9 doesn't have a place (yet) in tablet screens. It can be an awkward aspect ratio, whereas 4:3 works "better" and "more natural."
