2013 iPad Mini
By now the iPad isn't much of a novelty, but it's still a worthy engineering achievement. In 2013, the iPad Mini moved up from second-class citizen to first-rate tablet.
Its look barely changed from 2012, but one big change did come to how the world looks at an iPad Mini: its Retina display. The graceful arcs of letters and the crisp scenery of nature photos pop on a Retina display. And even though the rest of the iPad looks nice, let's face it: the screen is where the action is at.
The iPad Mini also gets the same A7 processor as its big brother, the iPad Air, so it's nicer on the inside, too.
Pulling out a tablet nowadays may not turn heads the way it did a few years ago. But iPad owners still can take satisfaction in its clean, uncluttered aesthetic and now its worthy display, too.
