After the iPhone 5 leak mega-saga—at this point you can call these renders sneak previews—the black anodized aluminum iPad mini seems like a done deal.

Which is why Gizmodo reader Martin Hajek—who made those awesome iPhone 5 renders that looked just like the real thing—has rendered these images. The more I look at the black iPad Mini, the more I like it.

The white one looks cool too... but then I saw the color model. I want that one.

It would be a nice surprise for the rumored imminent presentation of the new 7.85-inch model: iPad Minis with anodized aluminum backs in different colors, just like the iPod touch.

It's pure speculation, but it kind of makes sense. The color backs would make the cheaper iPad mini quite different from the Kindle Fires and the rest of mini-tablets of this world. It's playful and aligns with the iPod touch theme. And it would certainly help Apple sell gazillions of them this holiday season.

This blue model looks pretty sweet, although I would prefer mine in red.

But, most probably, the black one will be the top seller.

A completely white model, with the silver polished Apple logo, looks pretty too.

Seems like 2001: A Space Odyssey prop.

Although perhaps the white model will have just a plain anodized aluminum back, like the iPhone 5 and this render.

It so, it could look quite similar to the good old JesusPhone, the first generation iPhone.

Here's the entire white family, so you can compare the screen sizes. The iPad mini doesn't look that small, does it?

I honestly thought they would drop the iPod Touch and introduce an iPad Mini. But with the redesign of the touch it doesn't seem that's the case. Lack of 3G support on the touch, in my opinion, will be it's undoing. And if Apple does introduce a mini, especially at the $200 price point, they're going to undercut their own product. And speaking of this, who actually buys a touch instead of an iPhone?
