Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a deal on the 32GB model of Apple’s latest 9.7-inch iPad, which is down to $249 at Walmart and Amazon. That’s $80 off its usual price.
This has been the iPad’s sale price for much of the holiday season, but if you’re in need of a new tablet and haven’t taken advantage yet, it’s still a strong deal. While the 9.7-inch model isn’t the most capable device for professional work, it is far and away the best slate on the market for the things most people do with tablets—namely, watching videos, reading articles, and playing games.
It may not have the souped-up processor or ultra-vibrant display of Apple’s iPad Pro devices, but it is still built well and plenty smooth for far less money. Android’s sloppiness on large screens almost makes Apple king of this territory by default. There’s no pressing need to upgrade if your tablet that still serves you well, but if you need something new and don’t want to settle for the flimsier designs of cheaper devices, the 9.7-inch model remains a good value. Note that the 128GB model is on sale, too, if you need more storage.
If you’re all set on the tablet front, though, we also have deals on wireless security cameras, $45 Switch games, the Xbox One X, Bose noise-cancelling headphones, Anker portable batteries, and much more. Have a look for yourself below.
