I needed something affordable to use to write papers for school when my computer broke, so I opted to get a keyboard for my iPad Mini. I'm a college student on a budget and this keyboard is very affordable and if great quality. I've been using it for almost a year now and it still works great. It does take a little getting used to because of how small the keys are, but that's no fault of the keyboard, rather just a result of having an iPad Mini. It's also so much easier to transport my iPad than my Mac so it is a lot more convenient for classes.
