It's been a long time since I bought myself any toys, so - given that nothing else really needs upgrading - I bought myself a long awaited iPad Mini today (16GB Wi-Fi, black).

Got it from John Lewis along with a Knomo Folio black leather case and JL's £75 three year plan which includes cover for accidental damage.

I already love it :-)  

Been using it for 3 hours now and can barely tear myself away.

Like. Honestly, wish I'd got an iPad Mini instead of the Google Nexus 7. The Nexus is good, but I know I'd use an iPad more from my experience with the iPhone.

Yeah, I could have saved a lot by getting a £149 Samsung 7" thing instead (and saved more by not bothering with the £75 three year cover too) but it wouldn't have been the same.  The display on the iPad Mini, despite not being 'Retina', is pretty impressive nonetheless.

It's the perfect size. An iPad is way to big to lunk around in the back of my bag and the other 7" tablets that I have looked at have too much border and not enough screen and simply wouldn't fit into my little Applesphere (AirPlay, iTunes, iPhone etc.) that i've got going on here.
