Most popular tablet out today the Amazing iPad

Apple has again proved that it has a strong appetite for invention, with the first iPad out in April 2010, it had gone far in sophisticating the device and releasing the most mean machine, the iPad 4, 4th Generation.

iPad 4 comes with the eye catching retina display, powered by a dual-core A6X processor, which is twice as fast as its previous generation. Also, it comes with a lightening connector which is 80 % less in width then the previous connector. Also it is reversible which makes it easier to connect, whichever way you want to, so you need not figure out which way to go, just plug it in.

iPad4 is priced for $499 (16GB), $599 (32GB) and $699 (64GB), plus add a $129 more if you want to go LTE cellular.

So where to get the new, cheapest iPad 4, right ?

I got mine for $65 less than the retail price yesterday at Target, here is how to get $65 off on your iPad4 making it cheaper then the retail price:

  • Microcenter.com offers iPad4 for $40 less than the retail price, making it the only retailer offering at cheap price.
  • Do a price match with microcenter.com at Target, and you will have $40 reduced.
  • Then use your Red Target Card, or sign up for one, to save 5 % , that is, $25 more.
  • Thus you save $65 on the retail price, getting yourself the cheapest iPad 4, best current deal on iPad4 you can ever get.
