Having had my first generation iPad for a few years, I’ve found over the last year or so that I’ve been using it less and less, and my iPhone more and more.
The main reason for this was the weight issue – those old original iPads weigh almost a kilo, and with an already bulging handbag, I just didn’t want to carry it around with me unless absolutely necessary.
So I decided to change it for a new iPad Mini, which I’ve now had for a couple of weeks, and I absolutely love it. It’s so small and light, and only about half the weight of the previous one. The screen is a much more user-friendly size for reading /watching videos than the iPhone, and best of all, I can Skype from it as well (the original iPad didn’t have a camera).
Happily, I was able to sell my old iPad on eBay for just under £200, which went a long way towards the purchase of the new one. I don’t doubt I’ll be getting far more use out of the new one.
