The iPad mini is such a great device; the price is too high, however!

Drop that to $199, and you have a winner. 3 year old tech for $299 is too much asking price!!!

Apple has a way of pushing people... We think it should be $299, but they tack on the $29 just to remind us that we are buying a premium product. That's where the psychology comes in to play.

Rather than saying, "It's great, and it was only $299". We say, "It's great. Sure it was $330, but it was worth it!"

We are happy either way, but Apple goes the route that will get them an extra $30.

Not surprising, since WalMart owns Sam's Club

I'm itching for a new iPad, but I think I want to wait for the new one to be announced before deciding.

And Target will price match this. $300 + 15% off (10% employee discount from family & 5% RedCard) = cheaper.

Yes, surprising. When Walmart had the iPhone 5 for $188, Sam's had it for $197 still. Different buyers and deals.

Amazon's iPad prices are always terrible because they're trying to compete with their kindle fire.

No, it's because they don't sell them directly and the prices are set by the third party sellers.

Nothing new here .. it's just the way it should cost right from the beginning.

$299 sounds about right for a 16GB WiFi iPad Mini

To Retina Or Not To Retina

This is a great deal! If your waiting for the Retina Mini,(like so many of us are) it would probably be better if you just get the iPad 5 when that comes out instead.
