New Retina iPad mini Priced at $399
Check out the new iPad mini.
As rumored, the refreshed iPad mini delivers Retina display and absorbs some of the remarkable new internal components that make the iPhone 5s and iPad Air so power.
Starting at $399 for 16GB, (the first-gen iPad mini falls to $299), the Retina iPad mini offers up just as many pixels as the full-size iPad Air. If you crunch the numbers at home, that means the iPad mini gives us a higher pixel density on its display than the full sized iPad (the new iPad Air).
The iPad mini is powered by the A7 chip and is approximately 4-times faster at CPU tasks than the first-gen mini. It's also 8-times faster at graphics-related tasks.
Through it all, the new iPad mini still offers 10 hours of battery life.
The secon-gen iPad mini as well as the iPad Air will be available in time for the holidays, although pre-order and launch dates haven't yet been confirmed.
As expected, the new model comes in silver and white, and space grey and black.

I'm getting this. Can't wait 😊

Looks impressive, but they should have kept the $329 price for the lowest NEW model. $400 for this one is a bit too much, compared with some of the similarly spec'd competition. Alas, apple rarely drops the price.

May I kindly ask how the heck they got the full-resolution Retina display in there?!

I hate to say it but Apple is starting to mess up. First why circulate the ipad 2 that's been out for a few years instead of the ipad 4 and why is it the same price as an updated ipad mini with better specs. The ipad mini retina price bump was a bad idea as everyone said it was till expensive and now it's only $100 more for an ipad air. The previous mini only gets a $30 reduction? Jesus this is a bad model. Ipad 2 is expensive and very dated, mini retinas too much, mini should've been less and why in the robots *** did they start naming iPads now? Are they changing the names or is it going to be air 2 and 3. iPhones aren't much better but it's still a great phone I just hope they don't loose their touch

I want this but not for that price. And the first gen only dropped 30$. That's not really a drop in my opinion. If the iPad mini was actually a decent price I would so get it. But I payed 330$ for my 5S and I'm not paying the same just for an oversized iPod touch because I don't need internet.

I'm a little confused... What separates the iPad air vs the new iPad mini. They now both have the same resolution and the same 64-bit A7 chip. Shouldn't they perform exactly the same?

Apple has failed for the 5th time now. I don't get why you make a cellular model and not have the 1700/2100 AWS 3/4G bands. The Nexus 7 2013 LTE model will be the choice.

I'm having a hard time deciding between iPad Air and Mini with Retina, Wi-Fi only model. The only difference is screen size and $100 price, everything else is the same.
I have an iPad 3rd gen, and going small can be a nice thing when you lay in bed wanting to watch movies or read without having to hold something close to 5lbs lol.
Anyone care to help me out?
Now would be a good time to sell my iPad 3rd gen.
