Apple's Magic Keyboard turns your trusty iPad into a detachable 2-in-1 laptop. Apple accessories don't come cheap — luckily, this deal will lessen the blow to your wallet. 

Currently, Amazon offers the Apple Magic Keyboard for $269. It typically retails for $299, so that's $30 cheaper than normal. As far as Apple accessory deals go, this is one of the best you can get at the moment.

Now $30 off, the Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad 4 and iPad Pro 11-inch (1st and 2nd generation) provides a comfortable typing experience. It features a responsive touchpad and USB‑C charging port. Its floating cantilever design attaches to the iPad Pro and iPad Air magnetically.

Apple's detachable Magic Keyboard is one of the best iPad accessories to buy. 

The Magic Keyboard in this deal works with the 4th generation iPad Air and the 1st and 2nd generation 11-inch iPad Pro only. It features a floating cantilever design to angle the tablet, a 3.9 x 1.8-inch glass touchpad, and a USB‑C port for pass-through charging. 

In our Magic Keyboard review, we praised its comfortable backlit keys, responsive touchpad, and excellent fit and finish. Connecting the iPad to the Magic Keyboard was as simple as lining the camera module up to the cutout on the back.

In real-world use, we found the Magic Keyboard offers a more comfortable typing experience over the Apple Smart Keyboard. Its backlit keys only glow when a sensor detects a low-light environment. Scrolling on the touchpad felt smooth and finger swipes were all reliable.

Simply put, if you want to turn your iPad into a laptop replacement, the Apple Magic Keyboard is the way to go. Like all Apple deals, we suspect this one won't last, so don't hesitate too long.
