iPad mini

Apple discontinued its original iPad mini today, so retailers are starting to offer it at rock bottom prices. It's got an older A5 processor and isn't going to perform as well as the newer iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3, but it's still suitable for web browsing and light gaming/app use.

The lowest price on the iPad mini is $179, from a sale that Groupon is running. It'll only last through the end of the day, so if you want an iPad mini super cheap, make sure to snap one up right away.

Best Buy has the 16GB AT&T iPad mini in Silver for $199, also an excellent deal.
