There are several advantages the smaller iPad has over its superior siblings. I’ll list them here:
1) It is less expensive
The iPad Mini loses next to zilch compared by the iPad 4, but (Presumably) because of this slighter size and the shortage of the Retina Screen the smaller iPad is significantly cheaper. An iPad with Retina Display could be purchased from Apple’s online store for £399, but the iPad Mini is available from just £269. You are effectively getting the identical quality product, but you’re getting it at a less expensive price.
2) It is more portable
A tablet pc computer is actually a conveyable computer, so in that respect, the smaller you may make it, the better it is. Being smaller makes the iPad Mini easier to travel with, easier to pack right into a bag or suitcase and much easier to conceal when walking down a busy road.
Rene Ritchie of ‘iMore.com’ says:
“I like Retina. I’ve joked that non-Retina pixels are like sandpaper on my pupils. But having used an iPad mini for a week now, I find myself far too immersed in what I’m doing to give a damn about the display. I used to carry a MacBook and an iPad with me everywhere I went. If I dumped the MacBook, I’d stick with the powerful, pixel-full iPad. But I still need the MacBook, so from now on I’ll be taking the portable iPad mini”.
3) It (also) has a lightning connector
The Lightning Connector looks as though it is going to work as crucial to Apple’s potential plans. At the very least, they’re certainly putting plenty of eggs in its basket. This new adapter will additional serve to separate Apple products from the rest of the industry, but, from the purely technological standpoint, it does make some sense, at least.
Jamie Lendino, from ‘PC Mag.com’ pronounces of the Lightning Connector.
“It’s much smaller and oval shaped, and looks to be about the same size as a micro USB jack. It’s better suited to Apple’s ever-shrinking iDevices, as it just fits better, and it should prove easier to line up and plug in, and therefore more reliable than the fiddly 30-pin connector ever was (or USB plugs are, for that matter). It also works in either direction, so you don’t have to look to see which side is right side up anymore”.
Evidently, a 10-Inch iPad 4 will come equipped with Lightning um…Connection, but an older iPad will not. Advantage = Mini.
4) Further extras
The apple ipad Mini even offers a few additional features, little bits added to it just to sweeten the pot. My individual favorite amongst these is a piece of software that discards accidental touches. I don’t know quite how it works, but I’m really glad it does. For a one that generally finds touch screens irritating, this tiny doohickey is a breath of fresh air.
Taken as a whole, the iPad Mini in reality has an awful lot of advantages over the larger apple ipad, specially the older models. Apple diehards may baulk at it because Steve Jobs didn’t approve of the 7-Inch tablet, but everybody else seems reasonably pleased.
