Today’s Dealmaster is headlined by a big discount on Apple’s iPad Air, as the 4th-generation tablet is currently down to $500 at Amazon and Best Buy. That’s $100 off Apple’s MSRP and roughly $50 off the average street price we’ve seen on Amazon over the past few months. Either way, the discount marks the lowest price we’ve tracked for the device from a mainstream retailer.
Note that this deal applies to the entry-level model with 64GB of storage; if you’re wanting to step up to the higher-capacity 256GB model, that version is on sale for $650, another all-time low price.
We gave the iPad Air high marks in our review last November, calling it “the best pick from Apple’s lineup for most people who can afford it.” The recent introduction of new 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, both equipped with Apple’s blazing M1 chip, has introduced a few more wrinkles, but generally speaking, the Air remains the closest thing to a “just right” option in Apple’s current iPad lineup.
