Apple’s newest entry-level iPad model may look outdated, with the same exact dimensions as last year’s 10.2-inch tablet and pretty similar screen bezels to the original iPad Air released all the way back in 2013, but in terms of raw speed, this budget-friendly bad boy is a huge improvement over the A10 Fusion-powered seventh-gen iPad of 2019.
Even more incredibly, you can already save up to 34 bucks on an assortment of new iPad variants without jumping through any hoops whatsoever. Obviously, we’re talking about brand-new, unused, unopened, and undamaged units discounted here, sold by Amazon alongside a full 1-year manufacturer’s warranty with your choice of 32 or 128 gigs of storage space.
Unfortunately, there are absolutely no discounts to be had for buyers of cellular-enabled configurations, which means bargain hunters will have to make do with Wi-Fi connectivity only for the time being. On the bright side, you can choose from three different color options (silver, space gray, and gold) as far as both Wi-Fi-only versions are concerned.
If you’re willing to settle for 32 gigs of local digital hoarding room (in the predictable absence of a microSD card slot), you’re looking at shaving $30 off the 10.2-incher’s $329 MSRP, mind you, while content hoarders can get the aforementioned $34 marked down from the $429 list price of an eight-gen iPad with 128GB internal storage space.
