Still well-designed
Slick OS
Too much like the mini 2
Overpriced compared to last year

Two spaces up on the best tablets comparison and one generation newer among the iPad mini series. That's how much the iPad mini 3 hasn't changed for $100 more than the iPad mini 2.

Touch ID fingerprint sensor replaces the normal home button and Apple's offering a new gold color option to match that new iPhone 6 or iphone 6 Plus of yours.

Even with this marginal improvement, it's one that was already in a brilliant position thanks to offering the best of iPad Air 2, but squishing it down into a smaller package.
