'The Real iPad'

Kyle Baxter shares his experiences using the iPad Mini:

Every time I've wanted to use an iPad, I've picked up the iPad Mini. The reason is because for everything that I use the iPad for, it's a much better device. I can hold it while reading something or browsing the web, rather than rest it on my leg. This sounds insignificant, but in use, it's a dramatic change. Whereas the full-size iPad is something that you bring with you and set up to use, whether that's on a desk or on your lap, the iPad Mini is a device you can use while sitting or standing, because you can comfortably hold it in your hands.

Baxter's piece is similar in scope to Dan Frommer's in that both believe the iPad Mini is the quintessential iPad. I don't disagree, but it won't be my quintessential iPad until it goes Retina.
