Apple iPad mini

Apple’s latest is also its smallest—at least when it comes to the company’s tablet line. Smaller doesn’t mean less expensive though, with mini prices starting at $329. For that, you get the 7.9-inch Multi-Touch display, which has IPS techology and LED backlighting. It also cranks out a very hearty 1024-by-768 resolution. Other features include the same dual-core A5 chip from the iPad 2, a 1.2-megapixel FaceTime camera with 720p video, a 5-megapixel iSight camera with 1080p video, face detection, Bluetooth 4.0, the option to start up with Siri, and access to the the hundreds of thousands of offerings available via iTunes. This one also has the Lightning connector that everyone seems to love so much—well, everyone at Apple. It also promises up to 10 hours of web surfing via WiFi or 9 hours using your cell service.

MSRP: The three WiFi versions include the 16GB ($329), 32GB ($429) and the 64GB model ($529). If you want to add in cellular service, those prices go up to $459, $559 and $659, respectively.
Carriers: AT&T, Sprint, Verizon
