iPad mini: worth it for translators/interpreters?

I'm a grad student/translator who's debating picking up an iPad mini. Help me decide if it's worth it when I already have a bunch of other tech.

I have a chance to pick up a non-retina 16GB iPad mini for $199. I had some vague ideas about getting a tablet for grad school anyway, but only if it'll be useful to me- I already have an iPhone 5c and a macbook pro.
To the translators/interpreters of MeFi: has having a tablet been useful to you? Any apps you'd recommend?
Other perhaps pertinent details:
- I don't really care about retina/non-retina; it's nice to have but not a deal-breaker for me.
- I read and listen to audiobooks, mostly; occasionally I watch movies or TV shows. I'm a casual gamer but unfortunately Pokemon does not exist on the iPad.
- I don't travel much, but occasionally I will make the kind of trip where having an iPad will be much easier on me than a laptop.
