5. M8 Cool (Magic Mouse Knockoff)

No, the M8 Cool isn’t even a computer mouse, but rather a Magic Mouse knockoff that’s actually a real cell phone. At $69USD, it features dual SIM card slots, front and rear cameras, along with Bluetooth connectivity.

4. Lavi S21i (2012 27″ iMac Knockoff”

Apple has just begun shipping the latest-generation 27″ iMacs to customers this week, but for those in China, the Lavi S21i was available weeks ago. It can be configured with a 3.3GHz Intel i3 dual-core CPU or a 2.9GHz Intel i5 quad-core CPU and a 500GB hard drive (5400 rpm) or a 128GB SSD.

3. Xiaomi Box (Apple TV Knockoff)

From afar, the Xiaomi Box may actually be mistaken for an Apple TV set, but it’s just a clone, a powerful one at that. Powered by Android, it features a Cortex-A9 800MHz processor, 1GB of RAM, HDMI Out, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and a microUSB port.

If you are still on the fence about the iPad Mini purely over monetary reasons, we don’t recommend you pick up the $99 Goopad Mini. Sure, it may look like the iPad Mini, but features wise, it’s severely lacking. It runs a version of Android 4.1 Jelly bean modeled after iOS 6.

1. Goophone i5 (iPhone 5 Knockoff)

Even before Apple officially released the iPhone 5, the Goophone i5 was already on sale in China. It sports a 3.5-inch display, 5.0-megapixel camera, 1.3-megapixel facetime camera, and even a quad-core processor. Oh, the phone comes in a special aluminum case as well.
