    I would so love to win the iPad Mini for me!! So far, I have gotten my youngest son an iPad 2 years ago, my granddaughter an IPod Touch and before I could possibly get myself one, would have to get my husband one. But .. not sure he’d want a Mini — I’d LOVE one. Thanks for the chance.

  16. Terri Betz says

  24. Jill A. Collins says

    I want this because it’s one of those items that I’d never be able to buy for our family right now, but would make our lives so much better for all the conveniences it gives.

  25. says

    I don’t want one. I want 8! LOL! I’d love to have one for each of our 6 kids for various educational and fun purposes and one for my husband and one for myself for business purposes (…and if I accidentally end up on facebook with it.. um… oops!)

    I secretly have been wanting an iPad for some time now, just haven’t really told anyone about it. I would love to win it because they are so easy to take everywhere and can do pretty much anything a computer can, but without the bulk.

    Thanks for the chance to win. (:

  33. whitney f says

    I would LOVE to win one to give to my mother. She has been wanting an iPad since it came out! This would be amazing if I could win it and give it to her!

  34. says

    So my son can use it also :) the regular one is too big for him and he is super clumsy. He tries to take care of things but when you trip over your own feet its hard sometimes :) lol. Plus I know he’d love to be able to play on one, he watches other kids play on them and I know its eating him up to not have one.

    I would give the iPad mini to my husband – he’s a big comic book reader and this would let him read them wherever he is :)

  36. Jennifer Thompson says

    I think it would be the perfect Christmas gift for my mom. She would probably like the flexibility it has over the full sized Ipad. She loves to read books and this is a little more portable. It would be wonderful to be able to surprise her with something like this!

  37. Erika says

    I would love to win it so that I can take it on the go with me! I’m always on the go and it would be useful for my home and business life! Thanks for the chance to win!

  56. Stephanie says

    It may sound selfish, but I don’t want an iPad Mini for a child who may not appreciate it or even to give to someone as a gift, I want it for myself because I am a 25 yr old with no laptop or desktop computer, only a phone for internet and it makes it difficult to get anything done with work at home.It would be really helpful.

  57. Terry Cross says

    it would be great to have when traveling. Also to pass time while sitting in the waiting room at the doctor and such.

  60. Donna Anthony says

    Why I want an Mini IPad well it’s bigger then my IPod 2nd gen that I have and am using!!! It would make it easier to watch movies and playing games so much better with a bigger screen. Thank you for the chance to win!

  66. Mark Tague says

    I want the iPad mini because my iPad is too big for my daily needs with travel, yet my Itouch is too small for my requirements. That, and APPLE IS AMAZING.

  67. Michele Henneman says

    I would love to win so that my youngest has a smaller device to play with than the laptop and that it is more portable.

  68. Heather Garcia says

    I still have a iMac desktop computer that is ready to bite the dust, and I need to replace her with something more modern

  69. Patricia Koller says

    I have fibromyalgia and sometimes my laptop hurts to have on my lap. I am thinking an Ipad Mini would not tax my arms or legs.

  70. Linda Kish says

    I think it would be great to carry around to play games, read books and whatever else you can do with it.

    lkish77123 at gmail dot com

  71. Ash says

    I would love one because of the versatility of it! I could check my e-mail, play games, facebook, photograph, and then read a book on it. Not only that, but I could use it to teach my 1st and 2nd graders and 3 1/2 year old who does preschool.

  72. Shelly Macaluso says

  73. LunaRaven says

    I would like an Ipad mini to give as a gift for my mother’s upcoming birthday. She really wants one and she deserves it.

  74. says

    I’ve actually been researching tablets trying to make the best decision… even watching CNET live when Apple and Amazon did their releases. I was really excited for the mini. I actually was holding out for the smaller size because the larger – and regular size – iPad doesn’t appeal to me. I’d like a mini so I can travel with it, let my youngest look things up, and have my husband read his articles (and not on his small screen phone!). I think it would be a fun toy and great tool and resource to have.

  75. says

    I want the iPad mini because I have a lot of PDF tutorials on my regular computer and can’t afford to print them off to make them portable. The mini would allow me to work on my art projects in my studio instead of having to keep running back and forth to the computer! Thanks for the giveaway!

  76. Cindy says

    I would love to win this for more then one reason but the biggest one is that I want one and have no money to buy one. I have helped others set up their Ipads at work but I don’t have one. I think it is wonderful that you all have gotten together to allow someone to win this.

  77. Rebecca says

    i have been wanting something like this for a while and unfortunately they are always sooo far out of my budget:/

  78. Windy Phillips says

    Among other things, I would use this as a portable way for my toddler to watch her Winnie the Pooh and other movies on the go! I think it would be fab for this. We’ve started converting a lot of our movie collection to iTunes library movies and couldn’t be happier!

  79. Kenzie Christensen says

    I would use it for college to get the digital edition of the books and save my back from having to carry them! 😉

  80. Betsy Rubendall Barnes says

    I would love to win the Ipad Mini because I need to catch up with technology, I don’t even have a smart phone :)

  81. says

    First and foremost, although I always wanted one, I do have an Apple….anything. I’ve never owned an ipad, ipod, or even an iphone. Because of that, I would be SO happy to win! I also seriously think the apps for reading may help my daughter. She struggles a bit, and I’m really trying to instill that lifelong love for Reading. Thanks for this chance to win such a great giveaway!

  83. says

    I would love to win one of these for my daughter for Christmas. She’s a good kid who doesn’t complain (often) and deserves a thank you for everything she does (middle child).

  84. Laurie Barreca says

    I always love new tech! I have an iPad 2 and love it, but while it is much more portable than carrying around my laptop, not many purses will fit my iPad unless there isn’t much of anything else in there

  85. says

    I would love to win an ipad mini because i have wanted one forever! I think it would be great to use on car trips and when i go to bed the husband can have the tv back while i play or watch something on netflix :) he would thank you too lol

    I’d love to own one because I’ve been a Mac fan/user since the early 90s. I own a Mac desktop computer and love it. I own an iPhone and love it. I’m sure I would be giddy if I had a mini. Would be great to take while traveling.

  87. Candis Binkley says

    I have always wanted an iPad since they came out but the original versions were a bit too large for me to easily handle (chronic tendonitis in both wrists).

  88. Crystal F says

    I think it would be fun to take with us when we are out and about. My daughter could play on it to keep busy while we are waiting or while her sister is playing softball. Thank you!!

  98. Dameon Schirer says

    I want an iPad so I can download some educational apps for my son and to make it easier for me to read books as its tough reading books on an iPhone.

  99. Rachel Tambascio says

    I am a stay at home mom and since it is hard to come up with money to surprise my husband with a gift this would be a perfect christmas present

  100. says

    In addition to working full time, I’m working towards attaining my master’s degree through a part-time evening program. Having an iPad mini would really enable me to do so much in my life. Instead of hauling my laptop to/from class each evening, I could just bring the iPad mini. I could also get work done in my spare moments of time while commuting to and from work as well as class. In other words, it’d make my life a whole lot easier!
