Amazon now has the Apple iPad Air (Green) on sale for $539.99. That's $59 off its $599 list price and the lowest price we've ever seen for this tablet. This is the best iPad deal we've seen so far this year.
iPad Air deal
Apple's iPad Air is the brand's fastest tablet yet. It's also a great value since it offers all the best features of the 11-inch iPad Pro for less.
The iPad in this deal features a 10.9-inch Retina display, an A14 Bionic chip, and 64GB of storage. It also supports Apple Pencil for note-taking and drawing as well as a Magic Keyboard for a laptop feel (both sold separately).
As we note in our iPad Air (2020) review, we loved its sleek, thin-bezel design and loud, clear speakers. We also liked the tablet's good battery life, which lasted 10 hours and 29 minutes in our Laptop Mag battery test. We gave the iPad Air a high rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars and the Editor's Choice award for its excellent performance.
In terms of design, the iPad Air looks more like an iPad Pro than an entry-level iPad. Its redesigned chassis has slimmer display bezels than its predecessor. Not only does it have a smaller footprint, but it also makes for a more immersive viewing experience.
At 9.7 x 7 x 0.24 inches and 1 pound, the iPad Air is thinner and lighter than the Microsoft Surface Go 2 (9.7 x 6.9 x 0.3 inches, 1.2 pounds) and about the same size as the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 (10 x 6.5 x 0.25 inches and 1.1 pounds). The 11-inch iPad Pro has almost the same dimensions and weight as the iPad Air, coming in at 8.7 x 7 x 0.23 inches and 1 pound.
As with all Apple deals, this one won't last too long, so act fast!
