Mac|Life: iPad mini Review

 For fans of Apple, iPads, and shiny, beepy things, the arrival of the iPad mini is cause for celebration–and that’s before we’ve actually gotten our hands on the thing. Steve Jobs famously said that Apple wouldn’t get into the small-tablet market, and yet here we are just a few short years later with a small iPad seemingly targeted at consumers eyeing the likes of Google’s Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindles.

Of course in typical Apple style, they’ve put their own Cupertino spin on a small tab. It’s not a 7-inch screen, but 7.9, and the 4:3 aspect ratio bucks the trend toward tablet screens proportioned like your 16:9 television–and gives you more usable space.
