Apple’s iPad mini with Retina is basically what you get if you take the iPad Air, stick it into a smaller case, and knock $100 off the price. It’s now available for $399 and up.

Apple iPad mini with Retina

The tablet features a 7.9 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel display, an Apple A7 64-bit processor, up to 10 hours of battery life, front and rear cameras, and Apple iOS 7 operating system.

Prices range from $399 for a WiFi-only model with 16GB of storage to $829 for a model with 128GB of storage and support for HSPA and LTE wireless data networks. All models feature 802.11a/b/g/n dual-channel, MIMO WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.

If the prices seem a bit steep, Apple continues to offer last year’s iPad mini for $299 and up. That model features a 7.9 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel display and an Apple A5 processor.

    1. Well, what other 64-bit 7-inch tablets are out there at this price point?

      1. And how does a 64-bit chip make your user experience better with only 1 GB of RAM? Also, the native 64-bit processing of the CPU will not noticeably make your apps nor the OS run faster. Only scientific and server type processing actually get noticeably better performance due to extensive use of 64-bit operations.

        1. So, what you’d REALLY like is an 8-bit tablet for performance reasons?
          Makes perfect sense.
