When Apple brought out the iPad they revolutionized the tablet industry and they have done it again with The iPad Mini. It retains all the advantages of the iPad- its great catalog of apps, ease of use, and Apple style, but does it in a smaller, lighter, easier to carry package. It is a great choice for children, as it’s size and weight make it easier for them to handle, but many adults prefer it too. It’s really nice having all the capability of an iPad but being able to slip in into your handbag (purse) and bring it anywhere. This prize package, valued at almost  $400, includes:
