7 Reasons For
Apple Has Excellent Tablet Computer Reviews
We calculated the average ratings for all Apple tablet computers and specifically for Apple A7 processor tablet computers and found that in both cases Apple had excellent ratings compared to other brands.
Very Large Internal Storage Capacity
The smallest internal storage capacity of A7 processor tablet computers that have been on the market for more than two years is 4GB and the largest is 130GB. The Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a fairly large internal storage capacity (128 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec tablets that were released more than two years ago.
Quite High Rear Camera Resolution
The lowest rear camera resolution of tablets of this type and age is 0.3MP, the highest is 5MP, and the average rear camera resolution is 4MP. At 5 megapixels, the iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a quite high rear camera resolution compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that were released more than two years ago.
When compared to other tablets of a similar type and age to the iPad Mini (2nd gen) that we have assessed, the total storage capacity of the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) of 128 gigabytes is one of the biggest. The average total storage capacity of A7 processor tablet computers that were released more than two years ago is 53GB, and the total storage capacities range from 8GB to 130GB.
Fairly Long Browsing Time
Across all the tablet computers of a similar spec and age to the iPad Mini (2nd gen) the browsing times range from 9h to 10h, and the average browsing time is 9.5h. The iPad Mini (2nd gen) has one of the longer browsing times (10 hours) amongst comparable spec tablets of this age.
1080p Video Recording Mode
The Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a 1080p video recording mode which is higher than the 720p video recording mode found on most A7 processor tablet computers that were launched more than two years ago.
A 1080p video recording mode is actually the best video recording mode amongst all A7 processor tablet computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the iPad Mini (2nd gen).
Amongst comparable types of tablet the worst video recording mode is 720p.
+2 More reasons for
The average weight of A7 processor tablet computers that are a similar age to the iPad Mini (2nd gen) is 400g. The Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) is fairly light (only 331 grams) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the iPad Mini (2nd gen).
4 Reasons Against
£30.81 Price Increase
In the last 51 days the price of the iPad Mini (2nd gen) has increased by £30.81.
Not 3G Compatible
Most tablet computers of a similar age and spec to the iPad Mini (2nd gen) are not 3G compatible. The iPad Mini (2nd gen) is no exception to this as it too is not 3G compatible.
Compared to the other 22 tablets that were released around the same time as the iPad Mini (2nd gen) that we have assessed the number of processor cores of, the iPad Mini (2nd gen) has two processor cores which is average.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2 processor core tablets currently available including the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) which is cheaper; or the Apple iPad Air (£379.99) which has a better Rating.

The iPad Mini Retina gets from us a 9.6 out of 10 for design, a 9.7 for hardware and a 9.5 out of 10 for OS and UI
And then the big story: Same screen.Oh, it's smaller, all right: 7.9 inches diagonal instead of the iPad Air's 9.7. But it's exactly the same number of pixels, smaller and packed in closer... Read more…

I had some issues installing Debian Testing on this board, I ended up installing through UEFI, had to disable IOMMU in bios or mouse and keyboard wouldn't work during OS install
