iPad mini 2 7.9” iOS Tablet in 16GB or 32GB (Manufacturer Refurbished)
Though smaller than a traditional iPad, the iPad mini’s advanced hardware stands toe to toe with its plus-sized predecessors. That includes a powerful 64-bit processor that can run apps, games, and movies in high definition on its 7.9” Retina display.
The Retina display lends vivid clarity to movies, photos, and games with more than 3 million pixels, making it capable of finer detail than many HDTVs. The lack of visible pixels creates a smooth picture with realistic detail, which may unsettle nearby Atari characters. A fingerprint-resistant coating helps keep the visuals free of smudges.
Flow between streaming movies, shopping online, and ordering takeout: the A7 processor works seamlessly with Apple’s iOS to refocus resources as you move from app to app. Because its 64-bit architecture is particularly good at handling complex graphics, games and videos load quickly and move smoothly.
The iPad connects to local WiFi networks so you can check your e-mail or check the score as you relax in a cafe or grab a quick lunch. The addition of Bluetooth takes your wireless functionality even further by syncing the tablet to compatible devices like speakers and headphones. This model is only compatible with WiFi networks and can’t be added to cellular data plans.
Apple’s ever-expanding marketplace includes games, productivity helpers, media players, and other tools. This lets you customize the iPad Mini 2 for anything from tracking your budget to refining your sudoku skills.

From the start, Steve Jobs was enthralled with not only the novelty of technology but also its design. When speaking about the Apple computer, he said it was “going to be insanely beautiful.” Over the years, Apple’s products have worked to fuse innovative technology with almost artful design. The iMac stunned the world with its colorful plastic shells, which the New York Times said “more closely resemble a pack of Life Savers than a new computer line.” The glossy white iPod—no bigger than a deck of playing cards—could hold an entire library of music. Time Magazine named the iPhone the Invention of the Year for its stunning design and, uniquely, because of the promise it held for even better products in the future. With each new item they launch, Apple works to shape the way future societies communicate, learn, and dance when they’re alone.
