Well this is a horrible deal considering the 128gb model is going to be on sale for 279 on Black Friday.
Yes, what Johnny said. And those 128’s are new.
It’s not a horrible deal if you want the Mini form factor. I have not seen the Mini on sale in any Black Friday sales; just the 9.7" 2018 iPad. Yes, that one is faster (A10 chip) and I did in fact buy one last week. I thought I’d adjust to the larger screen but I haven’t; it’s just too big. I really prefer the Mini’s screen size.
It’s a horrible deal because I pad mini 4 128gb, new, will be between $250-$280 for Black Friday. Walmart already had a deal ($279) with pre Black Friday sales a couple weeks ago.
