After selling my mp3 player, my laptop and a few other electronics,
I traded them all in for the iPad Mini.
I have to say, I love this thing.
I've never owned a tablet before, and as is my nature, I instantly have buyer's remorse over anything that costs more than $89. Still learning how to stop second-guessing e v e r y p u r c h a s e ... But that's an issue for another day.
I'm not a "fashionable" Mac person, and it certainly doesn't make me a better designer or in any way "cooler" to own one, but it's incredibly easy to use, clean, fast, and useful in so many ways.
This is also the first product that I bought the day it was available - usually I'm never that into tech stuff!
It got me really into Pinterest, which I use to unwind at the end of the day by looking at beautiful things. And since I'm a really visual person, I love building inspiration boards for future projects.
