Beginning on November 1, Walmart will begin offering Apple's 16GB Wi-Fi only iPad mini 2 at a significant discount, selling it for $199 instead of $268. $199 is a solid deal and one of the lowest prices we've seen on the iPad mini 2, which was the first of Apple's iPad mini line to ship with a Retina display.
Compared to the current-generation iPad mini 4, the iPad mini 2 has a slower processor, less RAM, and it lacks Touch ID, but it's still a very capable device with an A7 processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera. It's also thicker and heavier than the newest iPad mini.
We'll likely see similar deals on the iPad mini 2 during the month of November due to Black Friday, but for now, Walmart's discount is one of the best deals to be had. Walmart will be selling the 16GB iPad mini 2 for $199 for approximately 90 days, the standard amount of time Walmart price rollbacks generally last.

When I click the link in the ad I don't see anywhere on the website where it mentions the sale. This would be a nice deal for a Christmas gift.
Meanwhile, Microsoft has upped their standards considerably. As a user of both, personally I find I get MORE software failures on OS X than Windows these days, which quite frankly is PATHETIC (This still doesn't change the fact that I don't like using Windows though, in general I think it is a horrible OS, even Windows 10). But to me, it is no longer a situation of using a Mac and OS X because they are more reliable, but of using them because of the ecosystem of products that Apple have.
Their iPad 2 is soooo slow now.
