I like the size of this iPad Mini and I like the Retina screen, very clear and crisp. It's much much better than my old iPad 2. With the mini, I am able to read everything clear on it and watch video on it with no problems. Playing games, watching video, surfing the web, and so on is much smoother and easier, thanks to it's new processor. No delays at all, quite speedy. Wifi speed is much faster than before.

Only downside is memory size. I mean I thought Apple would increase their size over time without changing the price. I got a 32gb which is ok. Was hoping Apple change new line-up in this order: 32, 64, 128, 192. 16gb is simply not enough to hold most of the great Apps that Apple offer. So, I must take one star with me.

Sleek, stylish, attractive, etc., and it is very useful. I bought it primarily to connect my Fujifilm XT-1 camera to take photos from the iPad and to send photos from camera to iPad. Also I plan to use it for general photo display for myself, family, and friends.

I suppose iPhone users are at ease with it, but for those of us who don't have iPhones (or other smart phones), it is not at all intuitive--yes there are a few of us who don't have smart phones. It does not work at all like a computer: no home page for Safari, no easy way to close a folder or app, etc.

Also, it is pricey. Should it cost that much? No, certainly not.

Overall, I would say it is useful for a lot of people, but not something you really need. Were it not for my camera connection I would not have bought it.

Slightly better than 1st Gen

Comments about 32GB iPad mini 2 with Retina Display (Wi-Fi Only, Space Gray):

Got this to replace a 1st gen iPad Mini. Slightly faster and the screen is a bit better but not as big a deal as Apple's hype. Just wish I would have gotten more memory. 32GB doesn't cut it if you want to store any media like music, photos, and videos. FWIW, I had to fix the 1st gen unit 3 times- fortunately had Square Trade on it for the 2nd and 3rd repairs which ended up being replacements from Apple. That makes 3 defective ones in a row. Hope this one is better.

            I bought this version recently and am not disappointed. No need to pay more for the newer model. This one is perfect and runs everything that has been downloaded with no issues. The size is also great for the kids.

                        Gave this as a gift to a hardworking employee that is bound for grad school. She is over the moon thrilled and even though apple products are super intuitive, she can make this iPad do tricks that have escaped me on mine. It's the perfect size to carry around with you to have all your computer needs in your bag. Won't we all have an iPad soon?

I like iCloud for syncing emails, etc. so changes on one device occurs on all. Apple could improve with better "owner manuals ". Also bought one for my seven year old granddaughter who loves it for games and movies.

                        This product works well for my daughters. The screen is a little too sensitive and has taken some getting used to as it is very easy to type incorrect letters when keyboarding.

                        Overall a good buy.
