Product Description

The 7.9" Retina Display makes its debut on the iPad mini, maintaining its enormous 2048 x 1536 native resolution. At 326 pixels per inch, the Retina Display can show up to 3.1 million pixels at a time. The Retina Display is also a capacitive touchscreen so you'll be able to utilize all the multi-touch gestures of iOS 7. Its smaller form factor makes it easier to hold in one hand. The iPad mini comes in a silver finish.

Customer Reviews

This was perfect in size and weight.

I prefer iOS to Android and I like the hardware Apple uses and the build quality of iPads.

The display is just crystal clear and sharp.

I've had the full sized Apple iPad with Retina Display for about a year and a half and have found that both my wife and I use it so frequently that getting a second iPad made sense. Plus, I got a great deal at B*st B*y and that was all it took to convince me to purchase this iPad mini.

I selected the iPad mini version this time because I felt that the smaller size would be nice, and with the retina display I knew that the display quality would be excellent. It is also quite a bit less expensive (than the full size iPad) and for an impulse buy, that helps.

Briefly stated this is a superb small tablet. If you are already invested in the Apple ecosystem then the apps you already own will load right up and it operates identically to your other devices. I'm not going to try to make the case for the Apple devices vs. Android tablets. I think they are both good, and both have their advantages and disadvantages. I've been using an iPhone for several years, as well as the larger iPad, so staying with Apple is a big advantage for me. That is what they want, of course, but it is also fine with me because I love the products.

Pros:

- The size and weight of this device is wonderful - this iPad mini is less than 50% of the weight of my full size iPad, which is a huge difference. The difference in weight is enough to make it much more comfortable to hold for any extended period.
- The display is still large enough to web surf and read documents comfortably. It has the same display resolution as my full size iPad (2048-by-1536), with a higher 326 pixels per inch pixel density than the larger model.

I rather like this device. It is purely for my apps. I really can't use it for much else, but if we are talking about entertaining myself, then this is perfect. I still have to have a laptop to do my work though. :)

iPad Mini Screen Protector 3 Pack Ultra Clear

Oh, and I got these screen protectors for my iPad Mini, and they were perfect! I recommend them to keep the kids dirty fingers from messing up the screen.

Verified Purchase
A check of the serial number shows that the warranty will expire in six months, making this a used iPad repacked and sold as if it were new. The cabling was haphazardly tied with a dirty bread-bag twist tie (Apple uses cellophane plastic). Bevel and backing appears to be refinished. Box is dented and dirty; appears to have been literally kicked around on the floor of a dirty office for months.

I rarely write reviews but Worldwide Distributors tried to rip me off so I thought I would write one.
I ordered a WHITE IPAD MINI with Retina Display
They sent me a BLACK IPAD MINI (first gen).
There are many sellers - choose wisely.
This has never happened to me before in my many years of buying from Amazon.
Now I have to drive to the mall and go to an Apple Store.
This item was fulfilled at an Amazone warehouse so thanks to both of you guys.

I originally thought that the mini was a pointless compromise between the iPod and the iPad. However, I bought one for my wife and have now found my own iPad to be over-sized and bulky. The iPad mini's screen is only a little too small, but the sound is better than my iPad's and the keyboard is so much easier to use.

I loved my iPad 3, I used it for everything: music recording, as a teleprompter, word processor etc. I am obsessed with portability and design so I wanted the iPad mini but waited on purchasing because it didn't have a retina display in the first installment. So when the second version came out with a crisp screen I jumped at the chance and there are no regrets.

The form factor is perfect on this version, it fits great in your hand, it weighs much less than the iPad (I can't speak for the iPad Air since I have never owned one), and it has the same great screen. Yeah I know its not as sharp or colorful as the Kindle and some other tablets, but the difference is slight and nothing beats the feel and functionality of an apple.

I'm really enjoying it.

There are a lot of good things to say about the iPad mini with retina display. I'm not going to list them all because other reviewers have listed most of them already. I do have to say if you are looking for a tablet because you are planning on buying and reading books, I would highly recommend this. In my opinion the kindle app on this tablet is perfect for reading books. For me, reading on this really feels like reading a book and doesn't feel like reading on a tablet. When I set the color to sepia and turn the brightness low, the screen does not burn my eyes at all.

Most people might already know this but I wanted to mention that the kindle app is slightly different on other tablets. I don't know why but the kindle app for the ipad mini gives you more options than the Samsung galaxy tablets. Apple's kindle app lets you change the font and lets you highlight text in 4 colors. You can't change the font with Samsung's kindle app and you can only highlight with 1 color instead of 4. I also want to mention the color sepia is also different in other devices. I personally prefer apples version of the color sepia because it doesn't burn my eyes when I'm reading books.

If you are planning on buying this to play games, I would highly recommend getting 32gb or more. 16gb is really not a lot of space if you are downloading a lot of games. Apple actually has a lot of great games so trust me will download more games than you expected...

The only thing I don't like about the iPad Mini with retina display is that a lot of the free games have way too much adds and commercials. Other than that I can't think of anything else I don't like about this device. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone reading this review.
