Black Friday comes early for iPad mini 4 shoppers courtesy of Walmart
Walmart may not have followed Costco’s and Target’s suit yet in revealing its fast-approaching and no doubt compelling Black Friday deals, but if you’re in the market for an iPad mini 4 at an unbeatable price, this is the place to go right now.

Originally released way back in the fall of 2015, the Apple A8-powered 7.9-incher is still the company’s most recent iPad mini release. That’s pretty sad, strongly suggesting compact tablets will go the way of the dodo... and compact phones soon.

Before that happens, though, both Apple and Best Buy have the nerve to currently charge a full $400 for a Wi-Fi-only iPad mini 4 with 128GB storage space. The same exact configuration is marked down at Walmart to an all-time low price of $274.99, but you’ll need to hurry and pull the trigger right away.

That’s because space gray and silver models are already out of stock, with gold inventory unlikely to last much longer either. The heavily discounted units are obviously sold alongside a standard 1-year warranty, unused and untouched, with a beautiful 2048 x 1536 “Retina” display in tow, as well as Touch ID fingerprint recognition, a super-slim but also robust design, a battery rated at up to 10 hours of endurance between charges, an 8MP rear-facing camera, 1.2MP front shooter, and full iOS 12 support.

Believe it or not, $275 is a whopping 65 bucks less than what Apple is currently asking for a refurbished iPad mini 4 Wi-Fi 128GB variant. Basically, Black Friday comes early for fans of easily maneuverable tablets.

It is sad that the 3 year old iPad mini 4 costs more than the "basic" 2018 iPad.

That's because Apple controls all aspects of their manufacturing, sales, repairs, marketing, promotions, and more. It's Apple's closed ecosystem, or I should say Apple world.

No need to buy this old thing if the iPad Mini 5 rumors are true.

Not good enough for that price. Mi Pad 4 is what? 160€? Not a perfect tablet by any means, but sure as hell better deal than this.
