iPad Mini: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Ars Technica has produced a comprehensive review of  Apple’s latest product, the iPad Mini.

The Good:

  • Size, weight, and shape are all great. It’s what the full-sized iPad can’t be
  • Screen size is technically smaller than the iPad, but real world use doesn’t make it feel that way
  • Good battery life means I’m not having panic attacks when I’m not near a wall plug

The Bad:

  • Gamers who are unimpressed with the iPad 2’s performance will remain unimpressed with the iPad mini
  • May feel more cramped when typing on-screen in landscape mode

The Ugly:

  • The pixels! The jagged text! The iPad mini needs a retina display option
