It easily integrates into my work routine: The picture above shows my desk at The Patriot-News on election night: iPad mini with Twitter feeds, my MacBook Pro streaming NBC, various page dummies and my work computer. It takes up far less room on my desk, which helps when looking at paper proofs and using the iPad to browse the AP stylebook.
I can't see myself justifying an iPad Mini; I have an iPad 3, which suits me. I use it more than I use my desktop machine on days I'm out and about.
For writers, I can see the IPad Mini becoming the perfect inspiration machine...
