Did you get an iPad mini? Which one, and why?

I, like presumably millions of others, stayed up until three in the morning (I'm on the EC) to order my iPad mini (black, 16GB). I currently have an iPad with retina display, but the mini makes it much easier for me to surf the web, read, and catch up on my emails on the public buses around town. I was just wondering what reasons everybody else had for purchasing one!
