So You Want An iPad Mini?

So do I!

I think I have my dear Apple loving husband convinced that I need one since my children have claimed my first generation iPad as their own.

Here's what I use my iPad for....when I can get my hands on it.

Angry Birds
Reading books
Updating books I'm reading on Good Reads
Checking the weather

All of these things are great activities for the iPad Mini.  I don't watch movies or TV on the iPad so the small screen size will be perfect for me.

In the keynote, they mentioned that the iPad Mini is as thin as a pencil and it's 53% lighter.  It has a 5 megapixel isight camera and you can face time with it.  FUN!

Now....iKeith did tell me that it does NOT have retina display like the other iPads so it won't be a clear as they are.  I'm fine with that.

Here's the price.

16GB $329
32 GB $429
64GB  $529

I'm also very fine with this lovely case that I found on Etsy by Iris and Lily.


  1. I use my iPad for my ereader all the time now. I don't even bother with the Nook anymore.

    1. I love reading with my iPad. I like being able to highlight and make notes!

  2. I want an iPad, any iPad!!!!!

    Wait, you can highlight and make notes with an iPad?

  3. I'm with Liz!! Any will be fine with me, and I love the accessories more than the tablet itself...WEIRD!

  4. Ok- so I want one too- and hubby asked if that is what I want for Christmas- but tell me this- is it any different than having an iphone- our iphone 5's are on their way to us in two weeks (on back order) and I have never had a smart phone- but I told my husband that I think the iphone will have everything that the ipad mini has? yes/no? I also have the imac which I am on all day, so not sure the mini would really add that much extra- what do you think?

  5. They sound very cool. You will probably be the first person I know to get one! :-)

  6. Ok don't hate me but I don't get the mini. Isn't it just a glorified iPhone? maybe I'm missing something but but I like the size of the regular iPad. enlighten me!

  7. I don't know if I would like the smaller size, although it would fit in most of my purses!

    I love my iPad!

  8. Eric really wants one too-- I haven't decided if I have to have one yet :)

  9. Hmmm...I'm not sold. Kind of sounds like everything I already do on my iPhone. But I'm also kind of anti-gadgets, so I'm probably the only one who feels that way about it.


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
