Best Buy is also discounting the iPad Air by $50 and the iPad Mini by $30 this Friday and Saturday. It will be helpful to remember that "iPad Mini with Retina Display" is this year's new model and "iPad Mini" is last year's model. Last year's model looks similar to the latest model but has less pixels in its screen.

It's worth repeating the differences between the different iPad models: iPad Air is the latest and greatest, introduced in fall of 2013. The iPad Air has a 9.7 inch screen and uses the latest Apple microchip, the A7, the same chip used in the latest iPhone, the iPhone 5s. Last year's model is called iPad with Retina Display. It looks very similar but should cost less because of its older microchip. The two-year-old iPad is called iPad 2.
