3 Reasons Against
Very Small Display Diagonal
Across all the A7 processor tablet computers that were launched more than two years ago the display diagonals range from 7.8" to 9.7". The Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a fairly small display diagonal (only 7.9 inches) compared to most of the other tablet computers of this type and age.

If this tablet computer internal storage capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen)[plb_2144811_price] (32GB).
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of tablet computers of this type and age is 16GB, the biggest is 130GB, and the average total storage capacity is 59GB. The iPad Mini (2nd gen) has a quite small total storage capacity (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as the iPad Mini (2nd gen).
