For a compact tablet they can take anywhere and get schoolwork done on, look no further than the iPad Mini. Apple's smaller tablet features a 7.9-inch display but is only 0.3 inches thick and weighs just 0.7 pounds, perfect for taking to class. Its battery life of more than 10 hours will get them through class and studying, and Apple's vast App Store covers all their education and productivity needs. For example, they can use Evernote Peak to quiz themselves before a quiz, or QuickOffice Pro to write papers, make spreadsheets and craft PowerPoint presentations for class.
