Target offering 16GB Wi-Fi iPad mini for $199

Target is holding a significant sale right now in the run-up to Father’s Day, and is discounting a number of its products. Among the deals, the retailer is offering the 16GB Wi-Fi model of the first generation iPad mini for $199.

That’s a solid $100 off of the tablet’s original price tag, and even beats out the ‘Special Limited Time’ pricing offered in the refurbished section of Apple’s web store. We’ve got the full details on the short-term promotion below…

The discounting is only available in-store, and, as noted by MacRumors, supplies appear to be extremely limited—a quick search of my local area shows that only 1 out of the 4 nearby Target stores has the qualifying models in stock.

It’s also worth reiterating this is the 2012 iPad mini, so it doesn’t have a Retina display, and a new model is expected to launch this fall. But if none of that matters to you, checkout your local Target. The promo ends Saturday, June 14.

      At the price they are on sale for, you can’t go wrong. I didn’t mind that it was a non-retina display. The mini is a much better form factor for me, so it was an exceptional deal.

    I had an iPad 2, upgraded to iPad Mini, and then went to upgrade to the iPad Mini with Retina but unless holding them side by side, I can’t really tell the difference. The non-retina screen on my iPad Mini looks just fine to me.

    Wish I could get a deal like that in the uk, I’d buy one for my parents. Since my dad’s always eyeing up my apple devices lol

    I picked one up Thursday, and I was extremely lucky. Walked into Target after work not expecting to find any in stock (again), but they had a solitary white one in stock. The clerk told me it was one of two they had gotten Thursday.
