My iPad Mini 4 update…

Uncategorized Add comments

Because I’m over 40 and the Internet is not genetically programmed within my psyche I forgot to post the thing I’d just written about my iPad mini 4.

That’s ok because it’s a quiet Sunday morning and there is just me and the dog so I can add a bit more about the thing – after using it for a number of weeks.

Basically, if you are looking for a tablet or new laptop or new computer and you can’t decide then my guess is that the mini will do all the work you need. In a nut shell it’s truly amazing. It out performs similar classed laptops (with the exception of gaming type graphics). It runs Microsoft Office. It has a great camera. The battery lasts for a long time. The speakers are very good considering the size of the thing. The screen is great. Etc….

What’s not to like?

Some of the apps are expensive compared to Android. If that is a problem I don’t know. Stability and security are important. Paying for stuff is a way to help developers build better solutions.

I use an external keyboard that cost an extra 90 Euros (a Logitech key case type thing). This makes using the tablet more into a laptop experience if you have a lot of typing to do. Is this a downside? I don’t know – some folks would say that it is. I found the regular Apple onscreen keyboard fine but maybe not for masses and masses of text.

There is no external storage. Again – I’m no sure this is a relevant argument. This little box has 64Gb storage – certainly needed. That’s enough to store a load of music, games, pictures and movies – certainly enough for a long flight and business trip. If I needed more – well – there are some nice little options that will allow you to use either wifi or an SD card etc. 

Sometimes there are some little idiosyncrasies with app functionality. Navigation may always not work the way you think. This though is symptomatic of all apps on all platforms. 

Other than that – and of course it’s apple and as such a premium is paid on the brand – what’s not to love:)

Get one.
