Best Apple iPad deals: Grab an iPad or iPad Air at all-time low price – CNET

As with most things Apple, discounts on iPads are rarely earth shattering. Right now, however, two iPad models are at all-time lows. The least expensive of Apple’s tablets — the eighth-gen iPad with 32GB of storage — is even more inexpensive right now on Amazon. With a $30 discount, it’s at its lowest price ever of $299. And the iPad Air with 256GB of storage is selling for $680 at Amazon — the $70 discount is the biggest price break we’ve seen yet for this model. You can save roughly $50 on other iPad models on Amazon, including both sizes of the iPad Pro.

We’ll be honest: This one is only for those willing to pay a premium for the smaller screen. You’re basically paying a big premium to get the same basic specs as the 10.2-inch iPad, but with a more portable 7.9-inch size (albeit with 64GB of storage and a spiffier screen).
