I just purchased this iPad Mini a few months ago and have loved using it. I love that you can get everything in a more compact form that can easily fit into a purse. The screen resolution is amazing and is perfect for viewing videos on the go or for looking at pictures. The only reasons I couldn't give it a ten are battery charging time and how expensive it is to replace a cracked screen. While the battery life stays for a long time it surprisingly takes a while to charge. I also dropped our mini and it was quite expensive to get the screen replaced. That being said, we have loved using this device and would recommend it. Weight The iPad mini is very lightweight and easy to carry around in a purse or on an airplane for times when you don't have a lot of storage space. Durability With how small this device is, it can be easy to drop so I would recommend some kind of casing that will protect it. Also, the black border tends to look better after use as compared with the white one.
