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, which is currently down to $409 at Amazon and Walmart. While that’s $10 more than the all-time low we saw earlier this month, it’s the best discount we’ve seen elsewhere. It’s still $90 below Apple’s MSRP and about $50 below the current online street price.

We gave the new Mini a positive review when it launched last September, praising its refreshed iPad Pro-inspired design, solid performance backed by Apple’s A15 chip, precise display, and respectable front and rear cameras, among other things . In general, it does what it’s supposed to do: be a small iPad that works just as well as any other modern iPad. Just notice that it really is just for people who specifically want the smaller 8.3-inch display; The roomier iPad Air and iPad Pro are generally better suited to the kind of multitasking and productivity-focused updates Apple has been pumping into iPadOS in recent years, and the M1 chip in these tablets is more powerful (albeit up to in some cases to overkill). Cases).

The $329 iPad, meanwhile, still gets the job done for more casual uses at a much lower price, though its design is far more dated. The iPad Mini is intended for a specific niche, in other words, but if you’re really looking for a higher quality, one-handed tablet for e-reading, surfing the web, or doodling with an Apple Pencil, then the Mini is for you, and this one is Deal makes its usually high price point a little more accessible.

We also have the best price we’ve found for the latest Apple TV 4K, which is currently available for $150 compared to the usual $170. We still recommend most people to consider a (far) cheaper 4K streaming dongle like the Google Chromecast first, but if you’re sensitive to the advertising that cheaper streamers tend to cram into their interfaces has the Apple TV still does all the requisite bells and whistles and plays well. The remote control has also been vastly improved over previous horror shows.

Elsewhere, our roundup features the first big discount we’ve been pursuing for the PS5 and PS4 versions of the popular RPG elden ringOffers over a number of newer Pokemon Games for the Nintendo Switch, discounts on Anker wireless headphones and Razer gaming mice that we like, Nintendo eShop gift cards, Wacom drawing tablets, USB-C chargers and much more.
