This iPad features a 10.2-inch Retina Display, 12MP front camera and 8MP rear camera, the A13 Bionic chip, and Touch ID. This is the most affordable iPad that Apple sells, and when it's discounted it's an even better deal.



Likewise, the 256GB Wi-Fi iPad is on sale for $379.00, down from $479.00. This one is also available in both Silver and Space Gray, with the same delivery estimates as the 64GB model. It's also a match for the all-time low price on this version of the 9th generation iPad.



If you're interested in the iPad Air, it's worth checking out Best Buy's current sale. Right now you can get every 5th generation iPad Air model for $150 off at Best Buy, with prices starting at $449.99 for the 64GB Wi-Fi iPad Air.

I’m seriously considering the iPad Air deal at Best Buy, but then again should I wait and see what’s included in the next generation? There is rarely any downside to buying an older iPad at a discount as they generally run well for years. Maybe I’ll wait for now….

This wouldn't be a bad device if they'd just put the darn thing in the Air 2 chassis with a laminated screen instead of the original Air with non-laminated. Then again the 10th Gen also features a non-laminated screen, and there's just no excuse for that in this day and age especially for a product that expensive.

The design is great. I’d buy one if only it had the laminated screen with AR coating, and a bit more RAM.
I agree. I love this design. I also don't like the camera bump. I'm also loving the Smart Cover, its pretty nice!

I bought the 256 GB M1 Air last year at Best Buy for $650. The thing is more powerful than my laptop.

I was reading an article on the BBC News app, forgot about it for a few weeks, and opened the app for something else. It not only opened to the article I was reading, it opened at the exact point in the article I had left it.

That’s what 8GB of RAM and the M1 does to an iPad. It’s nuts.

Good price for the entry level iPad provided 64GB is enough for the user. Apple could consider having this model permanently priced at around $249

For sure a laminated screen would be great but I think it’s to do with the education market finding them more expensive to repair. This might be a disincentive to buy Apple and the company cedes even more ground to cheap Chromebooks which are by comparison fairly indestructible.

i use an iPad 9 for work and the screen isn‘t a deal breaker.
