Jacqui Cheng reviewing the iPad Mini for Ars Technica
I didn’t really want to like the iPad mini as much as I did before I reviewed it for several days. I didn’t want to dislike it, but as a third-gen iPad owner, I couldn’t see the iPad mini having any purpose in my life. But as I began to wrap up this review and laid off on my requirement to use the iPad mini over my iPad 3 at all times, something changed. I found myself voluntarily reaching for the iPad mini over my full-sized iPad when it came time to relax on the couch or read in bed.
