During the last few years, leading tablet computer manufacturers like Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, and Samsung released a newer model every year. Generally, the newer model has a ton of new features making it more attractive than the older model. In contrast, the new iPad Mini with Retina Display (aka iPad Mini 3) has only a couple of significant upgrades compared to last year’s iPad Mini 2. They are (1) the fingerprint touch sensor and (2) availability in Champagne Gold. The 2013 Mini doesn’t have a fingerprint identity sensor and is only available in space gray and silver. However, the latter costs $100 less, and as a result, is bound to be more popular among iPad shoppers this holiday season.

As far as major hardware specs are concerned, the two models are identical: (1) retina display: 2048 X 1536 resolution at 326 pixels per inch, (2) dimensions: 7.87 inches tall, 5.3 inches wide and 0.29 inches thick, (3) weight: 0.73 pounds (331g) for the Wi Fi only model and 0.75 pounds (341g) for the Wi Fi + 4G cellular model, (4) processor: A7 chip with 64 bit architecture and M7 motion coprocessor, (5) front camera: 1.2MP photos and 720p HD video, (6) iSight camera: 5MP still photos and 1080p HD videos, (7) Bluetooth 4.0 technology, and (8) 9-10 hours of battery life. Considering these similarities, most professional iPad reviewers are of the opinion that the 2014 model is not worth the extra $100.

The up to $158 off iPad Air DEALS on this page are bound to be useful for iPad enthusiasts looking to grab a 9.7 inch, full-sized Apple iPad this holiday season.

Unlike with the iPad Mini 2 and 3 where the differences between the two models are minimal, there are quite a few notable differences between the newest iPad Air 2 and the 1st generation Air. The major differences lie in the (1) operating system: iOS 8 vs iOS 7, (2) weight: Air 2 is 32 grams lighter, (3) thickness: 18% thinner, (4) iSight camera: 8MP vs 5 MP photos, (5) CPU: Apple A8X is 40% faster than the A7, (6) availability in Champagne Gold, (7) the touch ID sensor: similar to the one on the new iPhone, and (8) the price: $100 more expensive.

“Right now we show you iPad Mini 2 sales that will save you as much as $133 compared to a Mini 3. It could get even better as we go in to the December holiday season. Given that the differences between the two models are minimal and negligible from a technical point-of-view, we recommend the older Mini 2 over the newer Mini 3 any day. Keep an eye on our iPad Mini 2 Sales page to save big this Black Friday and Cyber Monday” says Casey Donalds, a co-author of the above sales pages. “However, we can’t say the same about iPad Air Sales. Although you may be able to save over $160 by opting for a first generation iPad Air, we can totally understand if you can’t resist the better specs on the 2014 model” adds Donalds.
