Whether you’ve been thinking about finally getting yourself a tablet; are a longtime PC or Android user curious about making an OS change; or have realized that it’s time to replace your Apple unit that’s seen better days, there’s a great deal afoot.

Right now, Amazon’s offering the 2021 Apple iPad Mini for just $400. That’s $99 off its usual price, and a rare steal for a device that’s as much a standout now as when it was released.

If you have Amazon Prime, you will, of course, get free shipping on all your purchases. Not yet a member? Let’s fix that, shall we? You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

This is the 64GB, Wi-Fi model, available (while supplies last, that is) in four fetching colors: Space Gray, Pink, Purple and Starlight. It is, to put it simply, a paragon of efficiency, its diminutive 8.3″ inch size belying its power and versatility while offering maximum convenience for on-the-go reading, streaming, gaming and so much more.

It’s powered by a brawny A15 Bionic chip and, thanks to its “all screen” design, every bit of that 8.3″ area is devoted to its crystal clear screen, a Liquid Retina 326ppi panel with 2,266 × 1,488 resolution. That’s heaven for users who want to get their gaming and streaming on whenever, wherever without losing clarity.

Want to enjoy a Zoom meeting in the great outdoors? Shoot an impromptu video project? Do you just like taking photos? Well, this baby features a 12-megapixel ultra-wide front camera with Center Stage support, (which will automatically keep you in the middle of the screen during video calls). It also shoots 4K-quality video and features a 12MP back camera.

Startup and sign-in is a breeze, thanks to a TouchID-capable power button, and you’ll enjoy 10 hours of use on a single charge (which, conveniently, is done via a USB-C port). It also features stereo speakers and the ever-ingenious Apple pencil, which magnetically attaches to the side — great for note-taking, drawing and journaling.

And, because it’s an Apple product, users have access to over a million apps via the App Store.

Is it any wonder that a device this loaded is a big hit with shoppers? Herewith, a sampling of the thousands of five-star reviews garnered by the 2021 Apple iPad Mini:

“[The] iPad mini is the best tablet I have used,” said one Apple aficionado. “I have a 6th gen iPad that is 30% larger, three times heavier, with a screen that is very similar in size. The mini is faster and more reliable.”

“It’s perfect for holding in one hand and reading,” related this over-the-moon shopper. “Surfing the web or reading a book is most of what I do on an iPad. Hands don’t get tired holding this, and the screen is just the right size for consuming media — better than a phone, but not too big.”

One forward-thinking fan said: “This with a PS5 controller is all you need if you’re having to spend holidays with your family.”

Grab one now while they last.
