    I am a field biologist, teach a university class, and enjoy wildlife photography and I discovered this is an amazing tool to carry around with me. First, all I time because instead of carrying a notebook, field guides, and a camera, all I need is my iPad. I particularly like the fact I do not have to fumble around in my bag for items and have to carry less around with me. In addition, when I am making observations I can dictate into it what I am seeing and that means I do not miss important details or stop to sit and write notes. When I teach, instead of carrying around a sheaf of papers I have my agenda, lecture, and lab notes at hand. Finally, when I am shooting pictures and need to look up an organism I have never seen before, I have the information at hand. Moreover, I keep finding more uses for it every day. Moreover, to think, I was skeptical about making this purchase and now I cannot imagine not having it! For example, I just downloaded a book by E.O. Wilson and now I can read it whenever I have a break - no matter where I am.

    Love the product, poor Wi-Fi reception

    I use the iPad mimi mostly for reading and watching NetFlix.

    I wish the Wi-Fi reception was better.

              I used to have an ipod. This is so much more readable because of the size. I use it mostly to show pictures that I've taken with my DSLR and the resolution of the screen is so much better than that of my former ipod.

                Very portable. Great operating system - very easy to learn and lots of useful applications. The whole family can use it for homework, web browsing and playing games. The best of all, the entire iWork (including word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation) software are FREE to devices with iOS 7.

                Got this ipad mini mainly for web browsing and gaming. It is plenty fast and is a nice size. I am not concerned about storage, 16 GB is enough for pictures and a movie or two if needed for a weekend trip. Battery life is perfect. Great product for a home wifi.

                  Comments about Apple 16GB iPad mini with Wi-Fi (Space Gray):

                  When it came time to upgrade from my iPad 1, the iPad Mini was the perfect option. The Mini is a one-handed, light-as-a-feather, camera-equipped bundle of portable computing power with all the features of a full-size iPad, including Siri (a whole review in itself!).

                  It's the perfect size to tuck into a lunch bag for work or into a pocket on cargo shorts. Although I've found 16g to be plenty of space, models with more storage are also available. Plus, with WiFi available literally everywhere these days, I've never once missed the fact that is doesn't have cellular capabilities. (Although models are available with that option.)

                  If you're on the fence about purchasing a hand-held device with more screen space than a phone but at a more affordable price than a full-size iPad, stick with Apple products and check out the iPad mini -- I promise you won't regret it.

                          I purchased two mini ipads for my children since they love using my ipad. They use the ipad mini for just about everything. The kids love to play their games, watch tv and find useful apps for school such as multiplication, writing skills, reading and science related. They listen to music, take pictures and watch videos. I can go on and on and on. The mini ipads are a great size to take with you on the go and I'm very happy with my purchase.

                          Bought this for my wife, wanted a small tablet she could carry in hert purse. Only drawback is Apple continues to charge premium prices when a Galaxy is over $100 less with nearly same capabilities

                            Comments about Apple 16GB iPad mini with Wi-Fi (Space Gray):

                            I am a field biologist, teach a university class, and enjoy wildlife photography and I discovered this is an amazing tool to carry around with me. First, all I time because instead of carrying a notebook, field guides, and a camera, all I need is my iPad. I particularly like the fact I do not have to fumble around in my bag for items and have to carry less around with me. In addition, when I am making observations I can dictate into it what I am seeing and that means I do not miss important details or stop to sit and write notes. When I teach, instead of carrying around a sheaf of papers I have my agenda, lecture, and lab notes at hand. Finally, when I am shooting pictures and need to look up an organism I have never seen before, I have the information at hand. Moreover, I keep finding more uses for it every day. Moreover, to think, I was skeptical about making this purchase and now I cannot imagine not having it! For example, I just downloaded a book by E.O. Wilson and now I can read it whenever I have a break - no matter where I am.
