- XPS 8700 Desktop PC $800: Core i7-4790, 16GB, 2TB, GeForce 4GB

- iPad Mini Retina 16GB for $330
A reputable seller on Ebay is offering the iPad Mini 2nd Generation 16GB Wifi Tablet for $330 with free shipping.
Most stores sell it for $370 to $400, so $330 is one of the best deals around.
The 1st generation iPad Mini can often be found for around $250, but the 2nd generation iPad Mini has a Retina display (sharper image), a much better processor, and a better battery life.
Unless you only plan on using the iPad Mini as a fancy remote control and music player, we believe the 2nd generation iPad Mini Retina is a better value.
The iPad Mini Retina's 7.9x5.3 inch size is good size for a tablet, if you already have a laptop computer or device with a larger screen.
If you plan on (almost) replacing your laptop or desktop computer with a tablet, consider the larger screen of an iPad Air or a regular iPad.
iPad tablets do retain their value longer than any other tablet or laptop computer on the market today.
