If you’ve been eyeing an Apple iPad, you might be interested to know that Apple’s iPad Mini has received a sizable discount. Although the tablet is usually priced starting at $499.99, U.S. retailer Best Buy has knocked $100 off of the iPad Mini for a limited time. Both the 64GB and 256GB storage models are on sale, with the former coming in at $399.99 and the latter coming in at $549.99. As for colors, you’ll have the option of choosing from Space Gray, Pink, Purple, and Starlight.

Full-fledged iPad, in a smaller package.

The iPad Mini comes in a smaller form factor than the standard iPad, with an 8.3-inch 2266 x 1488 resolution display. The iPad Mini shares a design similar to the iPad Air or iPad Pro, meaning there is no home button. Instead, you get a more modern look, with a small bezel surrounding the display, and the Touch ID sensor moved to the power button. Additionally, since the iPad Mini got a fairly recent refresh, the tablet is powered by a modern SoC, the Apple A15 Bionic, which also powers Apple’s latest iPhone 13 lineup of phones.

Furthermore, the iPad Mini offers a robust sound thanks to its quad-speaker setup and could be perfect for an artist that to its support for the Apple Pencil, which isn’t a big deal depending on who you ask. Perhaps one of the more surprising features of the tablet is its USB-C port. This port replaces the traditional Lightning port found on a lot of Apple products and can be used to not only charge the device, but you can also connect supported USB-C accessories.
