Apple iPad mini
In November, Apple announced -- amongst other things -- the iPad mini. True to form, I just had to get my hands on one to see what the buzz was about. Unfortunately, my experience with it was less than favorable -- primarily due to the iPad mini feeling like a gimmick, thanks to its low-res screen (don't let the hi-res marketing images fool you -- the screen doesn't look anywhere NEAR that good) and yesteryear processor.
While Apple is the reigning champion of cashing-in, upgrade-after-upgrade (even the inconsequential ones, like the iPad mini), you would do well to skip the iPad mini and opt for something else. After all, it probably won't be long before Apple announces a Retina-display-equipped iPad mini as though it's a marvelous feat that we all must worship with our wallets. (I know that sounds harsh, but I have an iPad 4th-gen model and I absolutely love it, so I'm not just randomly hating on Apple when I say that.)
