Win a free iPad mini from iMore!



I think this is such a great edition. The other tablets are smaller and less cumbersome. I'm super excited the new mini is smaller and thus more portable! Thanks Apple... Love your products!

I was not happy to see the price point for the mini is still in the 300 dollar range. I have wanted to buy the i pad for my son but I can not get myself to spend the money for something I know he would use for playing "games". I have spoke with many therapist about the ability to use the educational apps for learning tools, but still that is a lot for a game.

I'm putting my eyes on the brand new iPad 4th generation, but if I get the cool iPad mini....count me in!!!

My feeling is the iPad mini is superior to its competitors in terms of quality and overall user experience. Additionally, you have the name cachet that only Apple can bring to consumer electronics. The greater price compared to a Samsung tablet, Kindle, etc. is therefore justified. It's like choosing a Mercedes over a Chevy. They'll both get your from point A to point B, but the Mercedes is better appointed and higher quality (perhaps arguably), and it has the status, and you are paying a correspondingly higher price for it. Regardless of price, I'll certainly take one for free from iMore! Thanks for the opportunity.

I personally think that apple is selling bad hardware in a nice shell im apple fan but this is not a good policy

I am logging on here after seeing Rene on Macbreak Weekly!!!! Greatttttttt to see a super knowledgeable Montrealer giving the 411 on Apple and technology issues.

I would agree completely with some of the comments made during Macbreak Weekly 322. First, I agree that Apple is starting to have too many SKUs. I remember how terrible this problem was and then S. Jobs came in and destroyed 90% of the SKUs and that it's time for a repeat. Second, wow, after the big reveal yesterday, what is there left for Apple to announce for their March 2013 period? Third, if Apple is comparing iPad mini to the Nexus 7, the Nexus 7 might have a refresh on Monday and it might be a 16GB Nexus 7 for $199 -vs- iPad mini 16GB for $329. Stay tuned.

On another point, man, I feel the pain of any iPad ver. 3 owner. Just punishing to see the ver. 4 announcement yesterday and then to see ver. 3 for $379 on apple store refurbished site (they are now OOS btw). Brutal. I have been an Apple user for about 15 years now but some of their, we can call them policies, are so expensive, I just don't understand it! On newegg this week there was 16 GB laptop RAM for $67. To upgrade the new Mac mini through Apple it is [Add $300.00]!!!!!!!!!!! Just painful!!!!!!!!

Same here. After seeing Rene on MBW 2 or 3 weeks ago i visit imore daily.

Great in-depth knowledge and nice articles.

I'm Crazy Protractor face! I don't believe we've had the honor. My vision is impaired, but I can still see you have iPad Mini's. I WANT THAT IPAD MINI.

Not sure what I think about the iPad mini. I have no complaints with the price point. However, I would have loved to see them put a retina display in it. Will wait and reserve judgement til I can see one in person and play with it a bit.

That being said. Not gonna turn down a free one! :)
Thanks iMore!

Hey there! I currently do not own any ipad or apple devise but I'm thinking about getting one and the I sawl this site and I'm like ''wha! There's no way!'' But after I read the article my mind was blown! Now I have total faith! Also I'm BEGGING NOW,PPPLLLEEEAAASSSEEE pick me!

iPad mini has, from the day it was announced, killed all hope the other 7 and even 8 inch tablets had. It just crushed their dreams of market domination. Now, this reader would love to get his hands on this revolutionary product.

I don't have an iPad and would love to have one. As for the price comparisons, I agree with those that have said "but it's an Apple". There is something to be said for being the leader of the tablet/phone world. Just is pay for what you get.

I've always wanted an smaller iPad. The ipad mini sound like my dream come true since i always carried around my ipad1 to play games on. Sadly, it's too heavy. Didn't have enough money to buy an lighter version. Just great news when i heard ipad mini would be priced between $200-250. My luck run out after finding out it retail for $329 including tax (9.7% in CA). Hope i can win an ipad mini by joining this free giveaway.

The iPadmini seems a bit pricey. It certainly doesn't make me want to run out and buy it. But I'd love to win one!


A bit disappointed this is an iPad 2 Mini. For the price, I rather spend $170 more to get the iPad 4. I will wait for the Mini with A6 & Retina, but I will take free one.

I'd like to win this. I would then attach my iPhone 5 to the back to make an amazing, dual-screened, back-to-front phablet capable of dominating the Galaxy Note. A pen (or stylus) may be mightier than a sword, but my FrankenPhablet would have lasers. Game. Set. Match.

I would love an IPad mini. Easier for traveling with. I use my IPad2 constantly and when it's not in my hands my wife has it. A second IPad would be well used. I'm hooked on Apple devices.

been a loyal microsoft user for 8 years... i am sooo ready to join the apple eco system. this would be a perfect start. i would buy one right now if i had the money!

I want the iPad mini, I've been wanting it for months, I want something I can read more comfortably. Unfortunately I can not justify the $329, especially since I know if I do it will be updated in a couple months with Retina.

I would really love one! I tried posting a comment earlier but it wouldn't go through. But, please, this would make the best early Christmas present! :)

I'd love to have this iPad mini...
I don't have a laptop at the moment, and this will be perfect for carrying to school.

I would be most grateful of winning that iPad Mini, I love all the apple products, aren't they awesome! Gotta Love em'

I think the price of this new Mini should be comparable to the Kindle Fire FOR EXAMPLE for competing against other fairly priced products. My daughter loves mobile apps but is also VERY big on reading. I'd rather get her an IPad but have to go with what I can afford.

At $329 I say the a free one is worth it weight in gold. Let us wait and see where the sale figures are at after Christmas.

I have a first generation iPad. While I like the size of its screen, I'm used to the performance of iPhone 4S and recently iPhone 5. I'm thinking about selling the iPad, and I'm going to get iPad mini one way or another.

That would be nice addition to my iPhone 5.
I have to tell you ever since I purchased my very first Apple product in March, you guys have been a great source of information and I would like to say Thank you.

At $329 and the same basic specs as the iPad 2 - I'll accept a free one but won't be buying one. Bummer, because would have been perfect for my daughter.

I would love to take part in this very generous contest in winning an ipad mini from iMore. Thank You Very Much ; You Guys Rock .

Give one to me and I promise you the best playbook death video ever created as this is going to replace my playbook as my work truck gps / computer / notepad - I should add the playbook is basically incompetent to perform any of these tasks and as such has never even spent a whole day in the truck on the road complete waste of money and I bought it before the latest price drop of course!

I going to buy my wife the iPad mini so can I have and excuse to play with. If I win one I'm still going to buy my wife one. You can never have too many iproducts lol

i need a tablet. plain and simple.

i wonder if anyone will have an iphone, ipad mini and ipad. would that be overboard?

Haven't bought an iPad because of no money and the size I felt was a bit too big for everyday use. This one though I feel is a great size.

I was hoping that the iPad Mini would start at a $249 price point for the 16 GB WiFI model. This would had establised the pricing tier for the remaining models. Based on my experience with the iPhone I feel that I need a 32 GB model. Now it comes down to the decision of choosing the model with 4G which will be $559. At this price point there is no way that I am going to purchase an iPad mini without comparing it with an iPad for size and weight. So now I will wait until they are availalbe in the stores before making a decision of purchase the iPad Mini. Of course if I were to win an iPad Mini that would make the decision making much easier.

I've been hoping to win something to give to my dad, who wants to get into texting at the age of 66. Here's hoping!

I would love to win this so i can take my mobile app development from Android to iPad. its just costs too much to start up with Apple. Please help!

I would love to win the iPad mini to share it with my family. It seems much more versatile than carrying around a laptop. So please pick me!!!

Please, give one to our family. We have a child with huge (really HUGE) tumor in his right foot and his stomach. He suffers a lot. I think iPad mini can help him to ease his life by adding to it some entertainment! Thank you!

Ipad mini is a resourceful tool that is much more portable and will help encourage more growth for different markets

I have several reasons to upgrade from my iTouch to the mini. But the most important is that it's the clear favorite for schools and students. I want to be part of all the smart young talent that will be using these in ways not yet imagined!
