That's everything we have to say? Not at all, it's just the tip of the iceberg.

About its design, this tablet is mainly made with Aluminium, which gives it a high quality design and improved resistance. This tablet feels much lighter than what one would expect from a tablet this size. Even though the iPad mini only has 7.87 inches long and 5.3 inches wide, it manages to hold a 7.9" display. This tablet has a beautiful design, with a thickness of just 0.28 inches. The iPad mini is available in 2 different color options, black and white.

Apple ships the Apple iPad mini with a Apple A5 system chip, backed up by a fast Dual-Core CPU running at 1000 MHz and 512 MB of RAM. To handle graphic rendering, this device also uses a PowerVR SGX543 MP2 GPU working at 200 MHz. A key advantage of this tablet is its large 32 GB internal storage and whereas it doesn't have an SD card slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of applications and even the largest games available nowadays without even thinking about filling it.

The iPad mini includes a good level 768 x 1024 7.9 inches screen, giving this tablet a decent graphic quality. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.
