"One of my best purchases of all time."5.0 starson by ibrocky
Pros: - Lightweight (super light!)
- small as my moleskin journal
- no glitches
Cons: - I am not bothered by the lack of retina at all.
- wish it had more than 512mb of memory
- Apple is holding back on the potential of this device.
Summary: The potential of this device is tremendous and the sad thing is that I have to wait a while before the REAL iPad mini comes out. I'm extremely satisfied with the purchase. I don't care about the iOS limitations because it's very consistent. Bottom line, it works!!
Lack of retina doesn't bother me at all because it's been very functional in all that I do with it.
My main purposes for this device: note taking (Evernote), scheduling, quick emails, reading (kindle, chrome, safari, pocket), and personal banking.
iPad mini will not fail you at all. It's very consistent and will be awesome at what it does.
