I purchased my first iPad in October; the 64 gb mini. While I had an iPhone and iPod Touch, I never appreciated what an iPad can do until I obtained my mini. Since then, I purchased a 64 gb iPad 2 for viewing things on an even larger screen and a 16 gb iPad mini specifically to carry to work. In fact, the 16 mini is replacing my kindle fire HD as my ereader and work device. After a long time waiting, my job finally got wifi, so, I can stream Netflix and Amazon Prime during lunch. I so hated the lag that occurred with the Kindle fire. Even my iPod touch was functioning better with streaming videos, so, I decided to get a mini with less space to accommodate my prolific reading. Some apps overlap, but, I have my reasons for owning three and I don't regret it.
