    upgraded from original iPad mini, December 14, 2013
    This review is from: Apple iPad Mini 2 with WiFi 32GB Silver | ME280LL/A (Personal Computers)
    I am writing this as an upgraded view not as a first time iPad buyer. i got the 64GB version but i did also post this review on the 16 and 32 versions because the 64gb version was nit listed for sale here until just recently. i bought the black, i had the white. i went black because as beautiful as the white is i found myself looking at the bezile often. the bright white distracted me from the screen sometimes. the bezel fades out of view when black and i find myself seeing more of what is on the screen.

    the retina display is a huge upgrade. i have corrective lenses and need 1.25 reading glasses. reading all text on the retina is worth the upgrade for me. while i do not have an iPad to compare the color gamut i can say that i think the colors are fine. the display is a worthwhile upgrade consideration. as much of an improvement the screen is the processor is an even bigger improvement. i use to see load time of a game called Field Runner2 HD (there is a free version too) of 40 seconds or so, the new mini loads twice as fast . i wish i took a video of the two side by side before i sent my old one to a friend. it was amazing how much faster the new iPad loads games. i posted a video of game load time on another Mini review page, sorry i no longer have it to post here.

    i would like to say the iPad mini should have had the fingerprint scanner and all Apple products are overdue for built in wireless charging. still this is a really nice product and i am glad i spent the money on the upgrade.

    Incredibly light, fast and beautiful. Is it the best tablet for you?, November 1, 2014
    John Ryan “Kat is the Brains!” (London, UK) –
    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)

    This review is from: Apple iPad Mini 2 with WiFi 32GB Silver | ME280LL/A (Personal Computers)

    Up until October 2014, this iPad Mini was the most recent model, and it’s an incredibly beautiful device.

    The iPad comes in several sizes (and prices) now:-

    Small (Paperback book sized, but incredibly thin)
    * iPad Mini (with standard display)
    * iPad Mini 2 – This one. The latest fastest Mini size iPad with an HD display.
    * iPad Mini 3. Released October 2014 – with the “Touch ID” – fingerprint reader and faster chip

    Having said that, personally I think the iPad Mini 2 (this model) is better value than the Mini 3. Not convinced the touch ID is worth the extra money.

    Larger (Size of an A4 Pad of paper)
    * iPad 2, 3 or 4th Generation – Full size iPads (probably best avoided)
    * iPad Air – Release November 2013
    * iPad Air 2 – Released October 2014. With the A8X chip and “touch id” fingerprint reader and faster chip

    Oddly enough, it’s so beautifully easy to use (my one year old daughter loves playing with it), it’s almost doesn’t feel like a computer at all. I bought one for my 10 year old daughter and she absolutely loves it. We sold the previous Android tablet as it just sat in a drawer not being used.

    A word of warning – this review is written for people who’ve never owned an iPad before – and are wondering what all the fuss is about. Don’t read this if you already own an iPad or Mini and are thinking about an upgrade – I’d recommend you simply buy a mini with Retina or an iPad Air.

    Just what’s all the fuss about?
    I used to own a laptop for work, and (very occasionally), it’d sit on my lap on the sofa, and I’d use it for pleasure (eMail, watching films or playing the odd game). Then I bought my first iPad, and the laptop became redundant, a boring “work device”. Hard to explain, but the fact the iPad is so small and light, and you navigate around with your finger by pointing and gently swiping the screen makes the whole experience a lot easier – a lot more fun.

    Even my most “luddite” of friends have been won over.

    It’s incredibly simple and easy to use (it only has one main button), and everyone from my one year old daughter to my 85 year old dad have taken to without problems. It’s size and shape also support using it like a book (literally to read a book or web page), but you can also watch TV and films.

    Personally I’m also paranoid about my password getting “hacked”, and someone running up a huge Amazon bill or buying stuff with my credit card on eBay. Well one of the benefits of the iPad (and iPhone) is it’s “almost impossible” to get a virus – one of the most common ways to get hacked. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use strong passwords, (both Sony and Adobe got hacked), but it’s reassuring to leave the Windows world behind.

    Finally, I love the way these devices (iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Apple Mac), increasingly work together. The fact you can start a Pages document on your Mac and edit it on your iPad, or take photos on the iPhone, and in seconds see them on the iPad or Mac and display them on the Apple TV.

    The thing is, “it just works”.

    What would you use if for?

    * Shopping online. Obviously – you could be reading a review on Amazon about the iPad Air!
    * Video Calling. With either “FaceTime” (to another Apple device) or Skype – you can make video calls to other people
    * Reading web pages. As you can hold it like a book it’s great to read the news online (my wife loves the Daily Mail Online).
    * Reading Books. It’s great for reading books from Amazon Kindle or Apple Books with the benefit of 1,000s of online book reviews
    * Navigating web pages. Instead of clicking with a mouse, you gently swipe your fingers on screen to scroll around
    * Watching Films. I use it to watch Netflix online videos (with an Apple TV you can send stuff to the telly)
    * Watching TV. With the free BBC iPlayer app (in the UK) you can catch up or download BBC programs
    * Reading and replying to mail. I use “mailbox” a great free app to read and reply to mails, but there’s a free one included
    * Showing and organising photos. Any photos on an iPhone are automatically available within minutes in “the cloud”
    * Playing games. From fun puzzle games like “Cut the Rope” to fully fledged first person shooters.
    * Listening to the Radio. With “Tune in Radio” you can listen to thousands of radio stations world-wide.
    * Listening to music. I stream mine to an Apple TV, but you can also buy portable speakers or just plug into the AUX socket

    very pleased with this vendor and product., January 31, 2014

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Apple iPad Mini 2 with WiFi 32GB Silver | ME280LL/A (Personal Computers)
    This is the first Ipad I’ve purchased. Wish i would have bought a 64 gig or larger. It’s filled up already.
    This particular vendor was amazingly accommodating and helpful. I ordered this 5 days before Christmas and it arrived 2 days before. Thanks, these guys are awesome!
