Not to be outdone by Target’s massive iPad sale two weeks ago, Best Buy is also dropping $100 off the first generation iPad mini. Technically, Target’s sale was $0.99 less, but that’s because for some odd reason the national retailer adds $0.99 to the MSRP of many products.

Available in silver and space gray, the iPad mini will only set you back $199.99 this week at Best Buy. That’s a savings of more than 33% and a match for the best price we’ve ever seen. Of course, it isn’t Apple’s latest tablet and there are likely to be updated models around the corner, but for less than $200 it’s perfect for casual users. The first generation iPad mini will be supported by iOS 8 and features a 7.9-inch LED-backlit display, 10-hour battery life, and dual-core A5 chip.

Protect your new iPad with this heavily discounted waterproof LifeProof case. Also, the iPad mini with Retina display remains on sale for $350 or $300 with an .edu email address. ipad-mini-best-buy-deal
