The iPad Mini: The Apple of My Eye

Jan 17, 2013
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:The Form Factor.

Cons:The initial price.

The Bottom Line: Wish this was the first iPad I'd bought.


The iPad Mini succeeds for me because of the form factor. It is small enough to fit into a large pocket, it is about 1/3 as light as a regular iPad, and it does 95% of all the things a regular iPad does.
 
My first job for it is to be an e-reader. Unlike a Kindle or a Nook, it will not only download Kindle books and Nook books, but it will also download books from the iTunes store. And other sources, like Google Books. Because of its light weight and fine screen, it is a great e-reader. So your book choices are greatly expanded.

Second in jobs and second in my reasons why I like this machine is that it IS a fully functioning iPad. Which means that you get all the stuff you get with a full-sized one. But it's the screen size of a "normal" book, not a coffee-table book. And you can search the web, do Facebook, check your email, and do all those thousands of Apps available to the Apple world in a slightly more compact package.

Third in the reasons why I like it, of course, is that it is linked into the Apple iTunes Store and everything that comes with it, with its huge collection of media. Plus the Cloud feature. Plus links to other Apple products, like your iPhone. Or your Apple TV. And the fact that you can connect to the net just about anywhere beyond normal Wi Fi with a 3G network.

The downsides: It's pricey up front, sure (but you get what you pay for with all the extras in the paragraph above.) You can't use thumb drives (although with an attachable card reader you can use SD cards.) And you can't take the battery in and out.

Overall, it's about as much tablet as I could wish for, and its small size makes it more mobiloe than anything I have except my phone. Great product.
