“Most of the, over half-a-dozen, Apple iPad models available in the current marketplace are on sale this Black Friday. This year, Pre-Black Friday deals on the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4 started rolling in as early as the first week of November. However, these deals are bound to get sweeter on Black Friday and Cyber Monday” explains Casey Donalds, a co-founder of Tablet Things. —
Up to $150 off iPad Air and iPad Mini Black Friday DEALS have been announced for Black Friday already. While some deals are available as direct discounts, others take the form of gift cards or rebates.
Go to http://TabletThings.com/iPad-Air-Deals/ for an updated list of 2015 Black Friday deals on the iPad Air (1st and 2nd generation iPad Air) and iPad Mini (2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation Apple iPad Mini) tablets.
“While some of these deals are available online starting the evening of thanksgiving, others will be available only in-store” Donalds elaborates. “All generations and all sizes of iPads are scheduled to get $70 - $150 discounts by retailers like Best Buy, Target, Staples, Walmart, Sam’s Club etc. The only problem is that most in-store deals will have limited stocks and fly off the shelves in record time” explains Donalds.
In addition to publishing iPad Black Friday deals, Tablet Things provides multiple comparison tables among the different iPad models.
“The biggest challenge for anyone looking to buy an iPad mini this Black Friday or Cyber Monday will be choosing between the iPad Mini 3 and Mini 4. The two iPad models are very similar but there are enough differences to set them apart. Many shoppers this year will still have difficulty spending an extra $100 to buy the newer model and may consider the differences too small to be worth it” explains Donalds.
Apple iPad Mini 4 VS Mini 3 Comparison – 12 Differences was recently published by Tablet Things to help consumers in the above decision making process. The comparison helps consumers easily identify the Pros and Cons of the two models.
According to the above comparison, compared to the Mini 3, the iPad Mini 4 (1) is 22% thinner, (2) is 10% lighter, (3) has a 1.3x faster CPU and a 1.6x faster GPU, (4) has an extra GB of RAM, (5) offers 10 fps burst mode shooting and 120 fps slow motion video, (6) supports split-screen mode to run two apps simultaneously, and (7) has a fully laminated screen giving superior reflectance, contrast, black levels, color accuracy and brightness, among other relatively minor differences. “Whether or not these extra features are worth the extra $100 will be entirely up to the individual to decide based on his or her requirements of the tablet computer” claims Donalds.
The above comparison emphasizes that only a few of the listed 12 differences make the additional $100 worthy of the mini iPad 4. “The upgrade from the A7 chip with M7 motion coprocessor to A8 chip with 64-bit architecture and M8 motion coprocessor as well as the upgrade from 1GB to 2GB of RAM resulting in 1.3x faster CPU and a 1.6x faster GPU are upgrades worth paying extra. However, the same cannot be said of some of the other upgrades” says a critical Donalds.
Tablet Things provides another comparison on the iPad Air 2, iPad Air 1 and the iPad Pro. Both these comparisons are bound to be useful for anyone still undecided on which model of iPad to go with this Black Friday. “Those who are planning on buying themselves a 6.9 inch iPad Mini or 9.7 inch iPad Air should make up their minds on the exact model they want to buy before Black Friday or Cyber Monday comes. Do not let the discount dictate the decision on which iPad to go with. Let the tech specs decide which Apple iPad should be bought this Black Friday” advises Donalds.
