Although no Apple tablet got into this list because of the steep price, this MSI Primo 81 can be a good trade off for the iPad mini. First off, the MSI Primo 81 can easily be mistaken as the iPad mini at first glance on the front side, minus the home button. The back side of the device will also give you an iPad mini feel, although the camera placement is a little different. The device features a quad core processor, a 7.85 inch IPS touch panel, a 16 GB internal storage plus front and back cameras.
