iPad mini now as cheap as the Nexus 7 at Target

The iPad mini is now on sale for just 99 at Target

Target now has a sale for the iPad mini that brings the price of Apple's non-Retina 7.9-inch tablet to $199, or the equivalent of last year's Google Nexus 7 when that tablet debuted. The sale price reflects a $100 discount on the iPad mini and the slate is available in either slate grey or white configurations so as long as you choose the 16 GB model with WiFi only.

The iPad mini originally debuted at $329 but was reduced to $299 when Apple introduced the updated model with Retina Display. For comparison, the Retina Display resolution iPad mini in 16 GB WiFi configuration costs $399.

Target says that this is their lowest price yet for the tablet and that "quantities are limited." The retailer additionally isn't offering a rain check either, though if you live near an Apple Store, you likely can get Apple to match Target's sale price.

With the iPad mini with Retina Display and an anticipated tablet refresh this fall when Apple is expected to introduce new hardware that runs iOS 8 out of the box, consumers should likely wait if they want to see what Apple has planned. That said, $200 for an iPad mini is a good price for a good tablet.

Still think it's too much considering the tech in it is like 3 years old.

Because they probably had like 5 in stock. The stores around me don't even carry them in store. Only online. Retina mini and iPad Air is only ones in store.

I sincerely hope that Apple does away with 16gb configurations completely in October. 32 should be the new 16.

It was a one day sale for Sunday only.

I price matched at Staples and applied their $20 tablet code and got it for $179..$191.08 OTD.

Snatched up some of these at a Target this morning for my kids to use on trips. In my area, used 16 gig WiFi iPad Minis are still going for $230-$250, so I feel like I got a good deal. Thanks for the info!

Warning!!! Bought this at target for the 199 price mentioned in the article. The 512 mb prosseser alone isn't worth it, as far as I'm concerned Apple should be ashamed for even that price. The camera was very grainy front and back. Videos looked very strained, and slow loading. I was really excited buying this and so disappointed when I got home with it. I would definitely save your money and get the retina screen version. Good luck with your ipad.
