Apple It's one of those days again: Apple held a product announcement today, announcing several new products. The most important of which was rumoured about for a long time now: a smaller iPad. It's called the iPad mini, and has the potential to become the best-selling iPad - and thus, the best selling tablet.

High impact polymers ie "plastic" is not cheap crap.

Well you can't argue that it's cheap (as in inexpensive). And it certainly has a cheaper feel than metal.

Aluminium and glass are the real "crap" materials - glass is heavy and structurally weak and aluminium scrathes and dents easily.

Nexus 7: 340 grams
Kindle: 413 grams
Galaxy Tab: 347 grams.

iPad Mini: 308 grams.

Yeah, that metal and glass is so heavy.
