Will work with both.

Black is £69.99.
The gods!!!

Feel bad for my friend who definitely recently bought one for £60ish. No idea why though!

I have just bought this, now I have to buy a damn mini iPad....

Cant say ive needed a seperate keyboard with any ipad, seems like it would be in the way and also needs charging meh.

Amazon one still 49.99?

Had one of these for a couple of years. Really good quality and is great for using your iPad on your lap. Battery last for ages. Think I've only had to charge it twice since I've had it!

Hot... paid £60 for that 1 year ago.

These are nice, but be warned there are a few serious flaws that caused me to see it on...

-The iPad mini retina is slightly thicker than the iPad mini. This means the viewing angle chances because of how it slots in. It doesn't seem much but it is significant in use. It is much more comfortable with the original mini.

-The viewing angle is not adjustable.

-The base is really slippery. I bought a few small clear rubber feet so it wouldn't slip around whilst typing on it.

-It's not really a cover as it doesn't keep closed, so whilst it is when closed it looks like you have two nice aluminium halves, it won't stay closed unless you put it in a slip case or get a big rubber band or some elastic to go around it.

At the £52 I paid Amazon I couldn't get over it. At £30 I might not have been as disappointed.

You are COMPLETELY right! I have one for my iPad, and as soon as I saw this for the mini, I thought at this price I will bite and use the savings for an iPad mini.

The quality that Logitech put into these keyboards is by far the best. If the fruit company put their own badge on it you would not have been able to tell the difference.

These are great if you really really need a separate keyboard - after you attach it your iPad Mini is no longer thin or light and your iPad case will no longer fit (this isn't really a cover as pointed out), you may need to store/carry it in your briefcase/backpack.

On the plus side, one charge lasts months.

Picked one up yesterday for my iPad Mini Retina. Absolutely fabulous - it's a joy to use. The magnetic attachment is extremely strong so I can cup the combo (iPad+keyboard) in one hand and type with the other without fear of them falling apart. It (the combo) is very comfortable to use in your lap, no need to hold it with one hand to stop it slipping around as you do with the iPad alone. On the desk, I don't take it apart and place the iPad in the slot (as someone said - it's too upright for comfortable viewing when seated at a desk) I just open it up and rest the back of the screen on something - it's easy to get your preferred viewing angle and the unused slot makes the perfect receptacle for a pen or in my case an e-cig.
There's got to be a downside of course and the fact that it doubles the thickness and adds quite a few grams to the weight compared to the iPad alone will put some people off. You'll also need to fork out a few more $$$ for a slip case if you want to protect both the backs of the iPad and keyboard from scratches but this would be the case if you wanted to protect the back of the iPad if using an Apple Smartcover. It does slip around a bit on smooth surfaces but the addition of sticky rubber pads on the bottom of the keyboard resolves this issue.
The keyboard turns your iPad Mini in to a small touch screen netbook and makes it a lot easier to use when composing long winded emails or documents, this makes it more productive so helps to justify the not insubstantial purchase cost of the iPad, however it does beg the question - "Why not buy a small netbook in the first place?"

I questioned whether I really needed a keyboard for the iPad, but having recently down-sized from a 3 to a Mini and bought one of these covers, I can thoroughly recommend it. Sturdy product, provides a nice stainless steel finish when it's closed, and I love typing with it. Definitely typing more on the Mini now when in the past I'd have fired up the laptop.
