The whole package. In a smaller package.
Designed to be a concentration, rather than a reduction of the original, the iPad Mini comes with everything that defines iPad, and iPad experience, in a 23 percent thinner, 53 percent lighter* profile that fits in one hand. A beautiful display, powerful A5 chip, FaceTime HD camera, iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording, ultrafast wireless, and over 275,000 apps ready to download from the App Store empower your iPad mini to do what an iPad can do. iPad mini is an iPad in every way, shape, and slightly smaller form. (*Compared with iPad (3rd generation). Actual size and weight vary by configuration and manufacturing process.)
Less size, not means less design and quality. In making iPad mini, every detail with extraordinary precision is taken into consideration. That’s what gives iPad mini its incredible fit and finish. With tolerances measured in microns, mono-crystalline diamond-cut edges, and sleek metallic finishes, iPad mini was designed and engineered to incredibly high standards. And you can sense that every time you pick it up. It feels beautifully made. Precisely because it is.
iPad mini is so thin and light, it requires an ultraslim connector. It’s called the Lightning connector, and it features an all-digital, eight-signal design that’s significantly more durable than the 30-pin connector. Another brilliant feature of Lightning: It’s reversible. Which means there’s no wrong way to plug in the cable. If you have an iPad accessory that depends on the 30-pin connector, you can still connect it to your iPad mini. Simply use a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (sold separately).
Pros: I love the size of ipad.

Pros: This is an absolutely brilliant tablet. If you're wanting the absolute best tablet experience out there, this is it. I had several other tablets and I quickly realized that I hated the 10 inch size, they are not tablets in my opinion. They are big clunky LCD screens that you seriously have to think about weather you even want to bother picking them up. Some tablets I've had and returned or sold: Asus tf300, Toshiba thrive 305, Nexus 7, iPad 4th gen (9.7) and finally the iPad mini and I'm happy. My second favorite was the Nexus 7. It got it right size wise, but the screen was just to awkward in landscape orientation. The almighty iPad 4 with retina display and A6x cpu was blazing fast but just a chore to use. I quickly started hating it. If its too heavy to comfortably hold for a long time, its simply useless to me. The iPad mini only loses 2 inches of its screen at half the weight. It's simply so light that it feels like its not even there, I never think to myself about the weight because its just not an issue. Only downside is there's not the latest a6 CPU inside which was noticeably faster on the iPad 4 I had web browsing and no retina display, but obviously that will come in the 2nd generation of iPad mini.
Cons: No retina display occasional fuzzy text.
Other Thoughts: If you're trying to decide between this and a Nexus 7 just depends on what you're wanting to do. This has brilliant performance in every game, Nexus 7 had noticeable lag in a lot of games like asphalt 7 and nova 3.
