Daily deal: 25% off the Apple iPad Mini

Discounts on Apple hardware are as rare as a good hair day for Simon Cowell, but that doesn't mean that they're impossible to find.

Photodirect on eBay is selling the 16GB Apple iPad Mini with Wi-Fi for the rather precise price of £202.99 with free delivery thrown in on top. Normally retailing for £269, that works out as a nifty £66.01 saving (a quarter of the RRP.)

The condition for each device is now and unused, though it may be missing its original packaging as a factory second. It's also an older model, meaning it won't come with the pricy Retina display of recent months. If you're willing to accept that, however, you'll get a 7.9in tablet that packs the power of its popular iPad bigger brother at a much smaller size.

It's got an LED 1023 x 768 resolution screen that sits in front of a 5-Megapixel camera. Pop the hood and it has a 1 GHz Apple A5 processor with built in wireless and a ten hour battery life.
