Apple last week unveiled two new iPad models, the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3 — though only the iPad Air 2 received a significant upgrade — making the new devices available for purchase almost immediately. Many older models are still officially available on Apple’s site and in stores, including the original iPad mini that sells for just $249.

As Forbes points out, from $249 to $829 there are 56 different iPad configurations to choose from, with users having to decide on various factors including size (two options), memory (four choices, but not available across the board), colors (up to three versions), wireless connectivity (two options), and whether they need a fingerprint scanner in their iPad or not.
