Summary: I bought a refurb iPad mini after a few months of owning Google Nexus and missing some of the things that Apple products provide but my Google Nexus couldn't (I also own an iPhone and am extremely happy with it). Overall it's a nice product but this particular buy wasn't the luckiest one. The iPad itself looks mint and everything seems to work just fine except for the home button at the bottom of the screen. I had to press it 4 or 5 times for it finally to respond.
Summary: I know this isn't the latest and most expensive iPad but it does the job! I am very money conscience and wanted an iPad for awhile and finally splurged on this one! I am very satisfied. Although the packaging it came in had me really confused due to the iPad box being dusty and the protector screen being really "bubbly" in appearance made me think that I may have boughten a refurbished one? I hope not!
Summary: As with all Apple products, the mini is designed well and easy to use. Fits my needs well. I had an iPad first version, and I do miss the larger screen, but the mini can take excellent photos and is better for reading. I do like the Kindle app and accessing my library via the iCloud.
Excerpt: I purchased the IPad Mini for my daughter's birthday. I was considering other tablets but after speaking with a wonderful sales associate, I decided on the IPad because of the fact she already uses one in school and, therefore, is familiar with the product. She was so happy that she cried when we gave it to her.
Excerpt: I never owned an Apple products before so I was thrilled and surprised to see how easy it was to navigating of this tablet. The reason I bought this mini ipad was to replaced the three years old b&n nook I had and now I would not want to trade my new mini ipad for anything else.
