    Hello guys,

    I want to buy an iPad for taking notes in college. I'm thinking about iPad mini 5. What do you think?

    If it's in your price range and the size is good then get one.

    It's considered the best tablet on the market for that screen size.

    Note - you will need to purchase an Apple Pencil separately if that's how you want to take notes.

    Of course, a pen and pad would be cheaper ;)

    Portability wise it can’t be beaten and personally I’d prefer the size for reading texts on, but it may not be the best Apple Pencil experience on that screen size.

    If you are buying from Apple, you could try it and then return it for the Air or the standard iPad should the Apple Pencil experience prove too much of a compromise.

    I think you need to go to the Apple store and try taking notes before you buy. Many dislike the pencil on iPads.

    If the OP favours the Mini for its size and doesn’t mind the pencil experience on the smaller screen, then it doesn’t make sense to wait. The Mini was only updated in March of this year, though the altering of the storage sizes in 2017 has reduced the average time between updates and has led to the buyers’ guide giving it a neutral status.

    he said he is thinking about the mini not that is sure for it..
    I think the mini is a dying thing...i think with a proper update for the base ipad....10.2" can be a big deal if he dont want the 11" iPP
