Daily Deals: New Apple iPad mini with Retina for £289, Belkin quilted iPad mini case and Texet microshred shredder

The Apple iPad mini with Retina display is one of the best built tablets on the market. Seriously, you’ll want to be careful about introducing it to your other handheld devices; the new mini is so slim, its svelte figure could spark extreme jealousy from other slates. Though to be honest, if you buy the coveted iPad from Currys, you’ll be having to deal with envious glares from friends anyway, because it’s being sold for a mere £289 after £30 cashback. Free delivery is included, meaning that you’ll get what is essentially a shrunken iPad Air (it measures 135 x 7.5 x 200mm - WxDxH) for a fraction of the price. The iPad mini has a 2,048 x 1,536 Retina display and a 7.9in screen, with an A7 64-Bit processor and a nifty 5-megapixel camera.

If the burn of envious stares becomes too much, you can always buy a Belkin quilted case with stand in subtle cream from IWOOT. The case doubles as a stand, making it the classy version of one of those glasses with moustaches people used to use as disguises. Your iPad mini with Retina will be out of the sight of prying eyes, looking dapper in an adjustable stand with multiple viewing angles, and will be protected from anyone so overcome with jealousy they knock it out of your hands in a blind rage. Yours for only £9.99 with free delivery, you can enjoy its magnetic tab closure and snug protective corners with the happy knowledge that you are saving 44 per cent off of the original price.

If you still are really concerned, and worried that someone could find the receipt, the instruction manual or any other paper-based proof of purchase, you can invest in a Texet MC146CD 6 Sheet Microshred Shredder. Able to shred a single sheet of A4 paper into over 2,000 pieces, the Texet is seven times more secure than a cross cut shredder and has a six-sheet capacity. It’s available from ebuyer for £29.99 with free delivery and is definitely worth checking into if you a) have a lot of paper to get rid of or b) really hate rainforests.
