iPad mini - Is the screen a real problem?

I wasn't planning to buy the iPad mini, but after reading all the very positive reviews, I am intrigued.

However, when I went to an Apple Store to see it in person, that screen really stopped me from bringing it home.

I find it hard to look at when basically all the new mid to high end gadgets have at least 200ppi. You can try to ignore it, but the difference is obvious. Yet a lot of people are saying it's acceptable.

But I can't help thinking, one year later there will be an iPad mini with Retina Display. Now does not seem to be a good time to buy it.

So what do you think?
