So you want an iPad, but you don’t want to drain your bank account on an Air 2? Well, if you don’t mind a smaller screen, 7.9 inches to be exact, then the iPad mini 2 is the tablet to get. For $299 you get a slate with all of the same features and performance as the last year’s iPad Air, right down to its powerful M7 processor, with an equally beautiful display.
