I’ve pampered myself once again by acquiring an iPad Mini 5! It’s not a brand new one; it’s a refurbished model, but it’s in impeccable condition. Additionally, it’s more cost-effective than buying a brand new one. I couldn’t be happier!

I previously owned an iPad 3 from 2012, which I gave away a few years ago. The operating system was no longer upgradable, and several of the apps I used for banking and other tasks couldn’t be updated either. So, after several years without an iPad, I ultimately decided to indulge myself once more and acquire the iPad Mini 5. I absolutely adore it! Its size is just perfect for me, and it’s also compatible with the first-generation Apple Pencil, which I hope to acquire in the near future. Alternatively, I might explore third-party pencil options, but I haven’t made a decision yet. I need to do some research to determine what’s available and worthwhile. I’ve bought some e-books in the past that I’m eager to dive back into and read on the iPad Mini. It’s truly a match made in heaven for me.

And I couldn’t care less that it’s refurbished. Refurbished products aren’t a downside; they undergo a comprehensive examination before being resold. My iPad Mini arrived in flawless condition, and the seller explicitly stated that it’s as good as new. So, I’m extremely content with my choice! Yes, Leander is a happy camper!
