As a former user of the 12.9" iPad Pro, 9.7" iPad Pro (purchased this past weekend but returned an hour ago), and iPad Air 2, I find myself constantly going back to the iPad Mini as my main portable iPad computing device. Though the updates and announcements are almost a footnote at this point for Apple, I really do think that its a marvel of a device for its ability to: 1. Show the same amount of content as the 9.7" iPads (albeit scaled down in size) 2. Have a keyboard that is actually quite easy to type quickly on with the thumbs due to ease of reachability for each key 3. Fit in one hand and be able to be gripped. There's something about holding it that feels like holding a smaller moleskine notebook that really does contain all of the data that's important to you (dropbox, ebooks, videos, the web). Not trying to start a negative campaign on the other iPads here, just very curious to get personal thoughts from folks who love their iPad Minis for the same reason as I do, or those that feel it's compromised and/or cramped when compared to the other iPads in the lineup.
