What we like about the deal: The 2020 Apple iPad Air is a reviewer favorite. PC Magazine states that “the fourth generation iPad Air gives you the performance of an iPad Pro for less, making it the best Apple tablet of 2020.” It offers “so much more than the $ 329 base iPad that it is worth taking the step up if you can afford it. “Meanwhile, CNET explains,” The iPad Air has a fantastic design, the perfect size, and is the best iPad right now (if you can afford it). “
Other things to consider: The Apple iPad Air isn’t perfect: reviewers have found that neither its battery life nor its multitasking capabilities are the best in their class. And it’s not cheap, even with a $ 50 discount, though PC Magazine notes it’s “a good long-term investment.” This isn’t the lowest price of the year either (Tom’s Guide notes the price was $ 539), though it’s pretty close at $ 549.99.

Bottom line: If you are in the market for a tablet now, this is a high quality option. However, the price could continue to fall (some pros forecast sales for Prime Day).
