While the prices are pretty good, as I've noted before most often the prices for refurbs direct from Apple are cheaper.

I don't know, do they really need a mini product. How about an iPod touch large instead? Too many choices especially since base models of iPad prices have come down.
Every pilot I know has an iPad mini because they fit on the yoke of an aircraft to display charts and plates.

Just sold my iPad Pro after picking up a refurb mini 5 from Apple. To me, the mini is the true iPad. Mac for productivity. SE (yes, in 2020) for on the go needs. mini for entertainment. The pro is terrible for holding in your hands, just as the 11s are for one hand. If I need a keyboard, it’s not a tablet. If it’s a tablet, it’s not as productive as a computer. Sorry. The pro isn’t pro except possibly for visual artists. If you’re always using the pro with a keyboard, why have an iPad?

Resist the attention theft economy. Use your phone for on the go productivity (communication, location research). A computer for in place productivity. An iPad when you are consciously choosing entertainment.

You want a great camera? Buy a camera. You want to post on Instagram or Facebook to get attention? Oh good sir or ma’am, the attention that’s got is yours. Apps are the new cigarettes.

Most powerful small tablet in the world. Too small for me but I can see how a lot of people love the size for travel.

I love the Mini 5, it has such a great form factor. If you want an iPad but ultra-portable (or even pocketable) it's the Mini.
