“After using the iPad Air and then the iPad Air 2 for years as my primary work system, the recent purchase of an iPad mini 3 has replaced them handily,” James Kendrick writes for ZDNet. “My preference is going as light and portable as possible, so recently I considered going smaller with the iPad mini 3. I do light work on the iPhone 6 Plus when I have no tablet with me, but there’s no way I’d head out for a long work day with just the phone.”

“I wasn’t sure if it would be good enough given the smaller display but decided to get the iPad mini 3 and give it a try as my daily work system. I picked one up from Apple (gold, 64GB, LTE) and have been using it every day since the purchase,” Kendrick writes. “I paired it with the Jorno Folding Keyboard for the heavy amount of writing I do daily, and the pair is as productive as the bigger iPad and a keyboard case.”
