    art is beautiful. i love that but cant do it. i want to buy ipad mini and is 64gb enough for browsing, streaming videos, apple music, gaming and future arcade gaming? i wont download anything except some pdf and documents for study or office work.

    Hi Brad , great review! I'm on the fence between this and the pro 11inch. My biggest concern is if with the mini I'm able to record the drawing and still have it perform well enough? When it comes to the artwork the mini is perfect for my needs, but knowing about the recording capacities would really help me out. Anyways keep it up!

    I’m still so disoriented on if I should buy this or not… it’s a fantastic review! But I also end up with the devils convincing me that ”Apple can do better in 2019”. I want to use the Apple Pen 2, have a magnetic holder on the side which also charges it. For portability that’d be perfect! But here and now, still having that rectumized charging when having it in my bag etc, not 100% convinced that this’ll keep me satisfied for 5 years ahead.. damn you Apple!

    Hey Brad, I don't own Clip Studio Paint on the iPad, but I have it on PC & you can adjust the interface size for touch-enabled operations. If the apps are identical, maybe you can find it? This device looks just nice by the way!

    Do we need the Apple Pencil for this? I’m getting an iPad mini for my birthday and I want to make sure if we NEED the Apple Pencil or we can use any other stylus

    Doesn't a Male to Female Lightning Adapter easily fix the awkward/potentially dangerous charging position of the pen?

    I'm looking forward to being in the Apple ecosystem (as well as Wacom) at a low price; waiting on when I can get a good 10-15% off though.

    I had a very bad day today. I’m chronically ill. Got stressed at the apple store doing an exchange with my mom there. And she was late to work. Puppy in the car for an hour ( with windows open in very nice weather ) Realized my phone was scratched after leaving the store maybe needing a screen replacement under apple care. Not for free. And then I got home and I cried. So much. Still sort of am. I saw this upload recommended. I’m watching it and I stopped crying and started laughing. Then started crying again. Because I wasn’t done crying. Now that you see the effects you have on a sick person brad… can I get a hug? 😄😭♥️

    I’m still studying so the normal iPad would just suffice for me, but after seeing and holding the iPad mini. I would gladly trade the standard iPad with this mini when I go into the workforce, because it’s sopractical for Everyday task literally. Like I can hold the device with one hand without feeling the weight like the standard ipad
