I often get asked what I recommend people to purchase when they go traveling. If I had to advise people what to take with them I would definitely say for people to purchase an IPAD MINI.
Why I recommend this?
- Amazing Battery Life
- Slim Design
- Camera, Video, Music etc
- Great Apple Software
I have had this device for 2 years now and it is my prized possession, every time I go traveling, whether it is on a weekend break, a train ride or a month-long vacation I have it.
The iPad Mini is so slim and small that it can can literally fit in a coat pocket and along with a set of headphones there is no need to have anything else for entertainment.
Whilst there are other tablet products on the market, the Apple product is by far the best both as hardware and software.
The fact that you can easily put full length films and documentaries on as well as music, games, podcasts and an excellent internet browsing experience there really is no need for a laptop when travelling.
Whilst my iPad Mini is the first version of the product, it is still just as good and works perfectly well.
The battery of the device is also amazing, with over 9 hours of use available before having to charge. This allows me to be fully entertained no matter the journey length.
My only advice would be to add a case to the iPad and screen protector, this ensures if you drop the device the case takes the impact.
