The iPad mini with Retina display is powered by a 64 bit CPU with Apple's A7 chip, meaning it's just as powerful as the full sized iPar Air. The iPad mini with Retina Display comes in two versions, the Wi-Fi model and a cellular version. It comes in 16GB or 128GB configurations. The retina mini also comes in silver/white and black/space gray and features a 5MP camera.
