I'm waiting on mine. But for my particular use case I've finally realized the iPad is the way to go. I seldom use the mini at all, and it's really been a hobby for me.
With apps like instapaper, kindle, Netflix, and the many casual games available for the iPad, I can see getting a lot more use out of it. I'm also looking forward to playing around with GarageBand a bit.
Somehow, though I don't think netbooks would have thrived very well even without the arrival of the iPad.
Still, I think both form factors will continue to have their own niche, and look forward to the advancement of these technologies-- particularly in the tablet market where, as good as the iPad is, I think there is room for much more.
