iPad mini 2 gen 32gb only 155 @ ASDA instore (Dunfermline St Leonard's)

LocalFound 16th Dec 2017
I am aware that this is a fairly old model of ipad mini (I think gen 4 is current gen), as well as it would probably not be easy to find around (as must be some old stock), therefore I am not expecting much heat.

But 155 is a great price for a brand new ipad mini with retina screen and 32gb memory. I have seen them going second hand for not much less on ebay/gumtree, so in my books brand new with full warranty, this is a bargain!

There were 2 in my local store - Dunfermline St Leonards (both space gray), I bought one. Been on a lookout for a tablet as a christmas gift, timing couldnt be any better

Hope this can be of use to others, let me know if you manage to grab one!

Thanks and ho ho ho Merry Christmas

I found it in the entertainment cupboard close to entrance, ticket showed discounted price (yellow tag with 239 discounted to 155). If it is not there then someone must have grabbed, try asking cs they might have more hidden at the back?

Did you get it scanned? As with other Asda instore deals (see xbox with fifa 17 recently), items might show full price but scan woth a discount. And was it definitely 2nd gen? Thanks for feedback!

I’m not an Apple fan but this a a great deal if you can track one down, hot
Don’t put iOS 11 on these. With 1GB ram it pretty much kills it. Honestly I don’t think these are worth much now as they won’t run with acceptable performance. A 4th gen is ok as it shares the innards with the air 2.

I inherited one of these recently and it looks and acts dated. Shame as iOS seems to be the best supported tablet platform. At full price these are a joke and they need to stop making this ****.

It had the latest iOS when I first started using it so I'm not comparing it to other versions but to other devices in a similar price range. The platform seems fine but the hardware is really showing its age now.
cold - 1 left and i suspect it got sold 2 minutes after this "deal" was posted

They have stopped making them, that’s why it’s on clearance

Yes. I had the mini 2 from launch. I sold it a couple of months ago after it slowed a bit with iOS 10 and then was ruined with iOS 11. IMHO buying a mini 2 now is a false economy.
Managed to pick one up from Dundee store

Why did you update it? I have a mini 2 still running on iOS 9.

I really don't think this is a good deal for such outdated tech now. If a 32gb iPad mini 4 was available for £150, then I'd be voting hot and saying it's a decent deal.
