Cheapest iPad (3rd Generation) Now Down To £379

Fancy getting a small but welcomed discount on the new iPad? Then Currys has a five percent voucher that brings down the price of the tablet from £399 to £379.05; simply type in FIVE during the checkout process in the appropriate field.

The tablet, which is commonly known as the iPad 3 or the New iPad, is a solid improvement on its predecessor, the iPad 2. It has the highest screen screen resolution of any mainstream portable devices available on the market and its resolution is only surpassed by qHD (2,560 by 1,440) monitors with 27-inch or higher diagonals.

Apple has also swapped the Apple A5 processor for the A5X which maintains the same CPU but improves significantly on the GPU performance thanks to a Imagination Technologies PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU with four cores and enough performance to outpace the likes of the Nvidia Tegra 3.

Other features apart from the Retina display include a 10 hours battery life, full HD recording capabilities, a similar photo subsystem as the iPhone 4 with a 5-megapixel resolution, 16GB onboard storage, 512MB RAM, Wi-FI, Bluetooth 4.0 and a front facing camera.
