Where to buy cheap iPad Mini: Price comparison by country



It has been our tradition to compare prices of Apple products in various Asia-Pacific countries in order to determine the country that offers the cheapest iPhone or iPad. We’ll do the same today — this time, for the iPad Mini which was recently launched by Apple in several countries in the past weeks.

We compared the prices of the iPad Mini in 12 countries, and we discovered that the cheapest iPad Mini in Asia-Pacific is being sold in…

First, here are links to our previous price comparison articles: Apple iPad 2: Cheap prices in Asia-Pacific and iPhone 5: Price comparison by country.

For our analysis, what we did was visit the official country websites of Apple’s online stores and noted the retail prices of the iPad Mini in local currency. We then converted the prices to US Dollars, using the exchange rate yesterday, for easy comparison.

The results below.

The Verdict: Cheapest iPad Mini

Our price analysis shows that Malaysia remains to be the country offering the cheapest Apple iPad Mini. The prices are even slightly lower than the official prices in the US. Malaysia is also the country that sells the cheapest iPad 2.

In contrast, China and New Zealand are two countries with relatively expensive prices of the iPad Mini. The Philippines also ranks as one of the countries with a relatively high price tag for the gadget.

So if you’re looking to get the best bargain for the iPad Mini, check out our price comparison table and see where you can go for the best deal. Or you might want to wait, since rumors currently abound that Apple is now already working on the newer version — the iPad Mini 2 — which could be launched sometime in 2013.
