Now is a great time to pick up Apple’s iPad ahead of the upcoming school year. The base 10.2-inch tablet is currently $30 cheaper, down to $299, which is the best price we’ve seen. It might not have all the bells and whistles of the iPad Air, but it’s a solid, budget-friendly tablet that can likely handle anything you throw at it. Elsewhere on the web, you can pick up the Chromecast with Google TV for just $40 and the Beats Studio Buds for $100. Here are this week’s best tech deals to get today.

Apple TV 4K


The Apple TV 4K is back in stock at Amazon and is priced at $120.

We gave the device 90 points for its fast performance, support for Dolby Vision and Atmos, HomeKit integration, and much-improved Siri remote.
