iPad Mini 2

5. iPad Mini 2

A great tablet that still costs a little too much

Amazing screen
Brilliant design
Similar-spec rivals are much cheaper
16GB too low storage

Hey, it's the iPad Mini 2... right next to the Mini 3? There's a reason for this: they're pretty much identical, apart from last year's model not having TouchID and now only coming in 16GB and 32GB flavours.

It's also has a substantial price drop, which is why it's hanging around so high in the list - in fact, we'd advise most people go for this older model if they're hankering for a smaller iPad, as it's got all the same power and display specs as the current model, for less cash.

Plus it has access to all those lovely apps and Apple's brilliant-for-tablets iOS 8 - not a bad choice at all.
