If you missed last month’s offer on the basic iPad, now is another opportunity to get the tablet for less. Amazon slashed the 64GB WiFi-only iPad by $30, bringing it back to a record low of $300. At the time of writing, both the silver and space gray models have this discount, and you can even save on the 256GB model if you need the extra storage. The higher-capacity iPad costs $50 and is down to an all-time low of $429.

We gave the base iPad a score of 86 when it came out last year and have since called it the best budget pad you can get right now. It runs on Apple’s A13 Bionic chip, and the company increased the base storage capacity from 32GB to 64GB when it updated the tablet last year. That means you’ll have more space for apps, photos, documents and the like by default, which is important if you plan to use the tablet for work or for the upcoming school year. Speaking of school, the 10.2-inch iPad works with both the first-generation Apple Pencil and the company’s Smart Keyboard, so it can also double as your main digital notebook.
While it doesn’t have the sleek design of some of the more expensive iPads, the entry-level model still has a lot going for it. Solid performance aside, it features a 2160 x 1620 Retina touchscreen with True Tone technology, a physical home button with TouchID, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and an updated 12-megapixel front camera with Center Stage , you keep the center of the frame in view when making FaceTime calls. We also appreciate the iPad’s solid battery life – while Apple promises up to 10 hours of life, we were able to squeeze out around 14 hours in our tests.
