Apple iPad Mini 16GB - small and basic tablet that won’t break the bank
The Apple iPad Mini 16GB is as close as Apple has come to releasing a budget tablet. With a generous 7.9 inch screen, it certainly has plenty of space for your eyes to roam over. The size doesn’t come at a cost to weight, with the Apple iPad Mini 16GB weighing-in at a mere 308 grams. Combine this with its high-end design - smooth-rounded corners and a sleek brushed-metal back - and it seems like the Apple iPad Mini 16GB is an all-round winner.
But one thing that might turn people away is the inability to add external storage. App-heavy users will eat through the 16GB in no-time. Another disappointment is the somewhat low-res screen, which produces less-than-ideal sharpness and vibrancy. This issue has been solved by the iPad Mini 2 Retina’s LED display, Apple’s more evolved - and more expensive - mini tablet.
But if you’re after a durable and glitzy-looking tablet at a manageable price, the Apple iPad Mini 16GB stands tall. Its 10 hours of battery life, fluid performance, and efficient WiFi connectivity really make it stand out among the mini-tablet range, and – like all Apple tablets – it’s as much a lifestyle accessory as a piece of techie kit.
