The Ipad mini by apple has changed the game of tablets. Since I have purchased one I barely use my computer unless I really have some work to get done. I can use the ipad mini to do do most of my daily work functions. Checking email, watching movies, Facebook, Instagram and photos can all be done with this device.
I recommend getting a protective cover because if the screen breaks its an automatic $180 to some company to fix it. I have a friend and he only charged me $150. Lets just say I bought the Otter box protective cover because that is a lot of money to fix a screen.
Overall in order to live a rootsy life the Ipad is a great convenience. Less is more so the gadget section in my blog will be the least full compared to the lifestyle section.
