    I bought this I pad to replace an aging I pad that we had. I love the speed and the clarity of the screen, much better than the old one. Amazing what changes in a year. Defiantly worth the money.

                      This iPad is easy to use even if you are not tech savvy. I bought this primarily for traveling. It replaces the heavy iPad retina that I carry around. This iPad mini retina is pretty light and I can carry it in my purse without even knowing it's there. It's light weight and the graphics are so clear. All I can say is WoW!
