Apple iPad mini 2Apple iPad mini 2 16GB WiFi Tablet with an $80 Target Gift Card
Store: Target
Price: $269 with free shipping
Lowest By: $10
Expires: November 28

Is It Worth It?: Let the Black Friday Price Wars begin! Looks like Target saw Walmart offering this tablet for $199 and said, "Not on our Black Friday!" Sure, it's not an out-right cheaper deal, but if you can use that gift card, this is a prediction-smashing price and the lowest we've ever seen on this tablet. It features a 7.9" Retina display, 5-megapixel iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording, WiFi, and iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers and Keynote apps.

Of note: If a Target gift card doesn't appeal to you, then Walmart's deals — which offers this tablet for $199 with free shipping — is still pretty impressive.

Apple iPad AirApple iPad Air 16GB Tablet in Space Gray or Silver with a $100 Target Gift Card
Store: Target
Price: $399 with free shipping
Lowest By: $95
Expires: November 25

Is It Worth It?: Yes, it's another great iPad deal that's only a steal if you can bear having to spend a large gift card. (We kinda warned you this was going to happen.) Still, assuming you can use the Target credit, it's within a buck of the all-time lowest price we've seen for a new iPad Air. If you prefer not to be burdened with free money, but would rather brave the Black Friday crowds, Best Buy will offer it for $299 as a Black Friday doorbuster.

Of note: Target also has the 32GB model in Black or White bundled with a $100 Target Gift Card for $449 with free shipping. With the gift card, that's $30 under our mention from three weeks ago and the lowest total price we could find by $80.

TKiView 7" 16GB Win 8.1 Tablet with a Microsoft Office 365 1-Year Subscription
Store: Newegg
Price: $39.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $19

Is It Worth It?: This deal offers the lowest total price we've seen for any Windows tablet. If that's not enough to make you interested, the free 1-year of Office is a nice enticement, too. (If you want to do office-y things on your tablet, like it's the gosh darn future or something!) It features an Intel Atom Z3735G 1.33GHz quad-core processor, 7" 1024x600 touchscreen, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth, and Windows 8.1.

FileMate Android TabletFileMate Clear X2 7" 16GB WiFi Android Tablet
Store: Walmart
Price: $29 with pickup
Lowest By: $17

Is It Worth It?: A second tablet that matches our Black Friday predicted price way before Black Friday is something to take note of, for sure. Seriously, it's like stores don't know how to be patient anymore! With its middling specs, this tablet is nothing to write home about, but it'll get the job done if you have some extra stockings to fill.

Dell Venue TabletDell Venue 8 16GB 8" Android Tablet
Store: Best Buy
Price: $279.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $19

Is It Worth It?: Though a fair bit pricier than other Android tablets on this list, this Dell slate has some impressive features and design. According to CNET, this tablet offers the "strongest case yet for tablet photography" due to its "powerful 3D camera and strong image editing features." It's also the lowest price we've yet to see for this model, so don't wait, tablet photogs!

HP x2Refurbished HP Slatebook x2 10.1" Convertible Touchscreen Android Laptop
Store: Newegg
Price: $134.99 via a $50 rebate with free shipping
Lowest By: $205
Expires: November 30

Is It Worth It?: One of the biggest gripes that CNET had with this 2-in-1 tablet was that it wasn't worth it's MSRP of $480. Lucky for you, this deal is a full $345 cheaper than that! Even better, it's the best price we've seen for any quad-core 10" 1920x1200 laptop. It features an Nvidia Tegra 4 1.8GHz quad-core processor, 10.1" 1920x1200 touchscreen LCD, 2GB RAM, 16GB eMMC hard drive, 802.11n wireless, HDMI, and Google Android 4.2 OS (Jelly Bean).

Please note: A 1-year warranty is includes; however, it is unclear who supports it.
