Apple iPad mini 6th generation

If you want the best tablet experience but don't want to lug around a device of 10 inches or more all day, then Apple's iPad Mini is the tablet for you. And right now, you can save $99 across several configurations thanks to a huge sale at Amazon. With prices starting at $400, this is within $1 of the lowest we've seen this iPad go since its release and one of the best iPad deals around right now. Higher capacity models are also seeing $99 in savings.

The iPad Mini offers the smooth and familiar experience of iPadOS with just an 8-inch footprint. As well as being the best iPad for portability, it beats most similarly sized Android tablet when it comes to performance and has a battery life of up to 10 hours. 

It has a stunning 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display as well as a 12-megapixel camera, which can quickly scan documents, capture 4K video and will even keep you centered during video calls. It's great for browsing, streaming, and reading, and its portable design makes it the perfect travel tablet. 

Don't discount its productivity chops, though. The sixth-gen iPad Mini is equipped with Apple's advanced A15 Bionic chip, the same used on the iPhone 13, as well as 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 256GB of storage. Its USB-C port makes it a versatile tablet when it comes to work tasks and support for Apple Pencil 2 opens up a world of creative possibilities. It has Wi-Fi 6 support for speedy web performance and offers all-day battery life (plus impressive standby time, so it won't be dead every time you go to use it).
