Image Gallery: iPad Mini Hands-On

For small-tablet buyers the Mini is a great option. It's pricier than the Kindle Fire or Google Nexus 7, but its size, elegant hardware and app ecosystem make the extra bucks worth it. If you already own a tablet, though, there isn't much reason to rush out and buy a Mini.

The screen is pretty good. I tried out the Netflix app and the streaming looks decent at 720p. As someone involved in film production I'd be a lot happier with 1080p, but 720p is broadcast quality and I'm not sure how much of a difference it would make on such a small screen. For reading text the iPad Mini is fantastic. Apple hit a home run there.
