Hey my name is Tristan and my new iPad mini is my first Apple product ever. I have always loved Android and own a GS3, but Android tablets are severely lacking in apps and aside from the Nexus line, no manufacturer seems willing to create a high end tablet. So after trying tablet after tablet (Toshiba Thrive -> Nexus 7 -> Asus Smart Pad) I decided to buy an iPad. I have heard al lot of good things about iPads and have used them before. To be honest, I have never been a fan of ios devices in general ad prefer Android phones to iPhone any day. But there is just something about the iPad that seems so right. The ecosystem, seamless design and software and a huge selection of tablet specific apps is really what makes the iPad so great. Overall not regretting my purchase at all as I have in the past with Android tablets. Looks like this ones a keeper.
