It’s time for a new Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the web’s best tech deals includes a nice discount on Apple’s latest iPad Mini, currently available up to $409 at Amazon and walmart† While that’s $10 more than the low we saw earlier this month, it’s the best discount we’ve ever seen, still $90 below Apple’s suggested retail price and about $50 below the recent street price online.

We gave the new Mini a positive review at its launch last September, it praised the updated iPad Pro-inspired design, solid performance aided by Apple’s A15 chip, accurate rendering, and respectable front and rear cameras, among other features. Overall, it does what it’s supposed to do: be a tiny iPad that works about as well as any other modern iPad. Please note that it is real nothing but for people who specifically want the smaller 8.3-inch screen; the more spacious iPad Air and iPad Pro are generally better suited to the kind of multitasking and productivity-oriented updates Apple has been pumping into iPadOS in recent years, and the M1 chip in those tablets outperforms (albeit to overkill in some cases).

The $329 . iPad, meanwhile, it still does the job for more casual use at a much lower price, although the design is much more dated. In other words, the iPad Mini is aimed at a certain niche, but if you really want a higher quality one-handed tablet for e-reading, web browsing or drawing with an Apple Pencil, the Mini is the one for you. must get, and this deal makes the usually high price point a bit more accessible.

In addition, we also have the best price we have found on the latest Apple TV 4K, which is: currently available for $150lower than the usual $170 rate. We still recommend most people consider a (much) cheaper 4K streaming dongle like the Google Chromecast First off, but if you’re sensitive to the ads that cheaper streamers often cram into their UI, the Apple TV still has all the bells and whistles needed and performs well. The remote control is vastly improved by previous horror shows also.

Elsewhere, our roundup includes the first major discount we tracked for the PS5 and PS4 versions of the popular RPG Elden Ringoffers on some recently pokemon spell for Nintendo Switch, discounts on Anchor Wireless Headphones and Razer Gaming Mice we love Nintendo eShop gift cards, Wacom drawing tablets, USB-C chargers and much more.
