To be honest Apple has it's place, my 4 year old and my missus love the ipad as it's the only tablet they can easily use.

great price, beats the cold out today (_;)

Love it, apple is like marmite gr8deals4u

Ill be honest I'm a serious power user using some of the worlds most powerful supercomputers and I like apple for its inter connectivity, ease of use and closeness to Linux but still extremely powerful.

Hot, keep this for a year and you'll get. £170-200 back for it, get a rival and you'll lose half it's value

This is a deals site .. not a popularity contest. If you can find this item cheaper elsewhere, post it, otherwise read another thread.

You can buy an Aston Martin and you can buy a Fiesta. Both get you from A-B but you wouldn't vote the former cold as the latter is cheaper (or you probably would oO ).

Good price I reckon

But an Aston Martin will out perform a Fiesta in every way (except MPG), how does this outperform it's much cheaper rivals ?

I can take or leave apple products.I can understand why people just vote cold for the sake of it.

What I find confusing is why some of these people feel the need to tell everyone about it.It's like a badge of honour for silly little geeks like yourself.

Each to their own I guess.

^ haha

i think this does not take sim card, but it says sim free.

Personally rather wait until March.
Retina screen.

The rules are you must comment when leaving a cold vote, i did. I also own Apple products (although purchased well below retail), the comment was meant as a joke (see comment 1 then read 2, Muppet).

Whether you like Apple or not, it's the best price yet. Hot from me.

Waiting for predictable price match deal, which will no doubt involve phoning around all the local CPWs for stock levels and then harassing PCW/Currys to save a couple of quid, which was just wasted in fuel.

Quidco are giving £20 cashback per tablet making this £229 if it tracks and goes through. Hot deal.

big iphone that doesn't phone


reasonable price though

i voted hot x

I'd say good deal when compared to its original 'overpriced' price.

but i would prefer to go for a N7 instead. Still good find

Bargain! I've had mine since launch day and absolutely love it. Ended up selling my 3rd generation Retina iPad as the mini is that good.

I posted a John Lewis deal a couple of days ago, they still have black 16GB model in stock. The deal dropped like a stone though

Yup and the ones who hate it only ever give the reason "because its expensive" or "because its Apple".

The thing is though. It's not expensive. Especially when you take into account resale value.

You try selling a 2 year old Dell that you paid around £600 for and you'll get pennies. Do the same with a £700 Macbook Air and you'll get £600 back (I know as I did it). Dont believe me? Get on Ebay and look at completed listings for Apple products -they loose very little value over several years. Even a 2006 Mac mini (£450 new) still sells for £250!

You can't call an iPad mini overpriced by comparing it to cheaper tablets being sold at cost or in Amazons case a loss.

Why can't you? Apple make at least 50% on these.

Seems to be on contracts, iffy wording.

I agree. contracts for the £20 cashback.

The funny thing is a big part of Apple's userbase are students. And the majority of students definitely aren't rich. I know a few who got their student loans through, immediately spent almost all of it on a Macbook and then had to spend the next 6 months or so eating cheap pasta with ketchup. Go through that just to get their £1000 Facebook machine.

The iony about your comment is my friends who have the most money, use PC's with a combination of Windows and Linux. I guess because they have more common sense perhaps?

You are joking?

Learn how hardware works please.

Apple use a custom SoC which provides tighter integration with the core of the OS. This plus the OS is highly optimised (iOS is actually Mac OS X with a different UI) for the hardware it runs on. Dont get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Android devices, but its an impossibility for Android to outperform iOS as iOS is optimised for a fixed set of hardware. Android has to be kept 'open' to work on lots of different hardware variations.

It's effectively the same situation as Windows vs OS X - OS X generally performs a lot better due to it not having to support every single piece of hardware out there.

Plus the ecosystem plays a big part. The iOS ecosystem is years ahead of Android's with more apps, less crap, etc.

(Note: I'm an iOS and Android developer and own multiple devices. I do not favor one or the other, but found myself compelled to respond to such an ignorant comment)

In a nutshell, its like comparing a Nissan Micra to a BMW X5.

Both are cars, one is a budget model, the other isnt.
