"Perfect size, beautiful, best ecosystem out there"4.0 starson by Count Boni
Pros: The size is very comfortable, you can use all the apps perfectly, all buttons and controls feel just alright, the apps universe makes the iPad mini even better, there is no need to find new apps, it just works.
Cons: Lack of retina display, it's still beautiful, usable and so good to use, but once you're used to retina, you can't go back. I'm sure they made some sacrifices because of the current technology, but it's so thin and light that it's ok.
Summary: If you don't have an iPad, need a lot of portability and you want a product that is functional, perfectly executed, with thousands of amazing quality apps, then this iPad is for you. It fits in most small bags and coats, surprisingly, typing on it feels great and I've found out that it's the perfect companion for business and pleasure trips. A bit pricer than other options but it's totally worth it. As usual, Apple delivers not only a beautiful product, but something well planned, with great usability and it will last more than a couple years without feeling outdated. Unfortunately they couldn't "fit in" the retina display but it's not something to put you off that much. Network speed is outstanding as well. Just give it a try.
