For the last year or almost 2 years now, I have had the large (13") iPad Pro that Robin got me for Christmas one year. It is larger than the regular iPad and iPad Air; and with the keyboard case, it is like having a small, lightweight laptop. I like the larger size for almost everything that I do; but when Robin and I went to Idaho last spring, this iPad took up most of the room in my backpack, and I still had to bring along the Kindle Fire so I could read during the plane trip out and back. I can use the iPhone to read with; but it is just a lot smaller, and is frustrating if I try to read for very long. Also, I was listening to motivational tapes (apps) at night, and the iPad takes up a lot of room on the nightstand. I thought that the new Kindle would work fine, it is a lot easier to use than the old model Kindle, but it just is not the same as having an iPad. I don't have the same apps, and even if I could get them, I would have to buy them all over again, to have ones that fit the Kindle. So, after much thought, I have decided that I want an iPad Mini. The older models are around $50+ on ebay, depending on model, condition, accessories, and color; so I am now watching and bidding until I get one that I want at a price that I can afford. It will have everything that the large iPad has, but is just a little larger than the Kindle; so i can easily put it in my purse if I want to take it somewhere. With a keyboard case, it can even pass for a miniature laptop, and would be perfect if i traveled anywhere, like the Idaho trip. I know that many of us on this forum have (and love) an iPad; but does anyone have a Mini, and if so, do you like it ?
