The only real draw back to the new iPad Mini is the $399 price tag. As with most Apple products, this one comes with a decently sized price. Having said that though, it is still $100 cheaper than the new iPad Air and is basically the same thing. This is perfect for anyone not wanting to haul around a larger tablet but still wants the freedom and mobility of a top quality tablet. The $399 is also starting price, so if you choose to get a higher memory storage or are planning to get LTE service as well, be prepared to have the price increase pretty substantially.
It may be a better benefit to rent this before buying just to see if the size itself would be the best fit for you, along with all of the capabilities of the device. This could be a great fit for the office as well, with its storage size being able to be expanded up to 128GBs, holding documents, memos, and even setting up your programs and apps. Any office could benefit from new tech, but now even class rooms are beginning to utilize tablets and the iPad Mini could be perfectly suited for teachers and students alike. That is, if it is within the schools budget of course.
