The iPad Mini is for the iPad fan who wants better portability and easier handling than the iPad can provide. Hold it in one hand, take it to bed for reading or emailing, or point and shoot a picture with nearly the ease of a cell phone.
The iPad Mini surrenders some resolution and an inch in screen to its larger sibling, but it is 53 per cent lighter than the iPad, and less expensive. The iPad Mini with Retina display improves the viewing of images. Reliable sellers on eBay deal in Minis up to 32 GB in capacity. They come in black or white, and many feature Retina display.
