    As part of its Father's Day promotional push, Target is offering the 16 GB non-Retina Wi-Fi iPad mini for just $199 in either white or space gray, a savings of $100 over Apple's standard pricing. The offer is only valid in-store, although customers can purchase online for store pickup. Quantities do, however, appear to be very limited, as most stores are currently showing no available stock.

    The discounted pricing is valid through June 14, so customers looking to take advantage of the big discount should check back frequently if their local stores are currently out of stock.

    (Thanks, Steve!)

    That's just about low enough for me to impulsively purchase one before contemplating whether I actually need one.

    I know my fiancée has been talking about replacing her POS Windows laptop with an iPad... I'll check with her if she'd want this.

    Sounds like a new iPad soon?

    First of all, this really is a great deal on an iPad. Yeah, it's only 16gb, but my 2 year old iPad is only 16GB, I use it a lot and it still has plenty of space on it.

    But it also looks like Target is clearing out their old non-Retina iPad stock for a possible newer iPad maybe?:)

    My though exactly. At this price, I might just need to pick this up for wife gift so she can stop borrowing my full size ipad. I told her that when the new air came out I would upgrade and give her my old one, but this may be a way nicer thing to do. Husband points comming soon :)

    Loss leaders are not a sign of anything.

    Stores do this on a regular basis with popular products to lure in shoppers.

    Yup, picked up my Mini this morning and the store was almost empty. Stores are currently struggling for traffic.

    YOUR FACE is lame. :p

    This is a good deal for those that wanted a non-retina iPad. I would have preferred the retina but whatever, I may just pick one up for the wife.

    Meh. It's still 2011 hardware, but with that price it may be worth it.

    Best Buy will price match

    Hello All,

    I just went to Best Buy and had them price match it. The manager started to say well we have to call the store to see if it is in stock. I kindly pointed out that their website (Price Matching) does not detail it has to be in stock, but advertised that way.

    He then said nothing more and approved it. $199 is a great price to have a second iPad. I am giving this one to a friend and couldn't pass up the deal.

    Jeff

    That display is SO BAD I'd still turn it down for $50. I'm totally serious. I was shocked they released such an awful piece of junk when it first came out and I'm doubly aghast they still sell the thing.

    Best Buy in Col Heights DC refused to price match. Said they'd already phoned Target and verified there were none left in the area, even though Target's website says otherwise. Looks like your luck depends on your store manager.

    I guess you don't care very much that other people have different opinions than you. FYI: Starting with a bad joke won't net you many (if any) responses.

    This fathers day, let dad know he's second rate by getting him a second rate iPad Mini.

    Tell dad "hey, you're outdated and here is a crappy tablet you can find on Craigslist for about $100"........."But I payed $199"
