Walmart has all three iPad mini 4 colors on sale at an all-time low $300 price ($100 off)
The cheapest iOS tablets available directly from Apple today are last year's "standard" 9.7-inch iPad, priced at $329 and up, and a recently refreshed iPad mini, which sets you back $399 in an entry-level 64GB configuration with Wi-Fi support only. But while the Cupertino-based tech giant has naturally pulled the plug on 2015's iPad mini 4 on the heels of unveiling a significantly faster sequel, many third-party retailers are still stocking the compact oldie.

Predictably enough, Best Buy held a couple of different sales these past few weeks, possibly running out of all remaining inventory, as the 7.9-incher is currently listed as out of stock in both space gray and silver colors with 128 gigs of internal storage space. But that's where Walmart comes in, charging $299.99 at the time of this writing for said iPad mini 4 variant in a trio of paint jobs.

You can go for a gold, silver, or space gray model equipped with Wi-Fi connectivity and 128GB local digital hoarding room, but no LTE support, which means you're looking at cool savings of $100 compared to the small tablet's list price. As far as we can tell, this is a repeat of the iPad mini 4's all-time low price, as well as the first time in... forever when all three color options are simultaneously available at the same massive discount.

Of course, the iPad mini 4 is no match for its 2019 successor in terms of raw speed, packing an outdated Apple A8 processor (versus a much newer and beefier A12 Bionic). But that's the only big thing separating the two 7.9-inch generations, which look identical on the outside, sporting the same exact Retina display with 2048 x 1536 resolution and thick bezels, as well as a classic Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and a battery life rated at up to 10 hours. Now it's for you to decide whether you can settle for a $300 128GB iPad mini 4 or you absolutely need a $400 64GB iPad mini (2019).
