Apple iPad Mini
A Gold Standard in Tablet Computing
Apple’s iPad has become a gold standard in tablet computing.
Gracing the market in multiple configurations — from the iPad Mini 1, 2, and 3 to the iPads 1, 2, 3, and 4 as well as the latest iPad Air 1 and 2 — it has played stiff competitor to Android and Windows tablets alike.
As tablet computers have grown in popularity Apple has managed to attract many to its sleek, elegantly designed iPad. With smooth, graceful lines incorporated into a minimalistic case design, the iPad looks and feels like just what it is — an incredibly advanced tool and significant step forward in tablet computing.
Running Apple’s intuitive iOS and boasting state-of-the-art hardware, these tablets exude versatility — and certainly not at the cost of performance.
The iPad features USB and headphone ports, great speakers, a camera, and both Bluetooth and Wifi connectivity.
Bottom line, the iPad — in all its iterations — is a versatile performance tablet that oozes style while remaining as ergonomic as any of its competitors.
