If the deeply discounted fourth-gen iPad Pro 11 with a state-of-the-art Apple M2 processor under the hood still feels too rich for your blood and the "regular" iPad 10 with a 10.9-inch screen doesn't seem powerful enough to handle your daily mobile computing needs, there's only one thing to do right now.
Check out the Best Cyber Monday tablet deals right now!
Powered by the exact same decidedly high-end Apple M1 chip as the 2021-released 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pros, this year's 10.9-inch iPad Air is the best iPad for a lot of people, especially in terms of value for money and especially at a cool $50 discount.
That's right, the $599 and $749 list prices of the Wi-Fi-only iPad Air (2022) in 64 and 256GB storage configurations respectively are both marked down by the same 50 bucks, and if you hurry, you can even choose from a few different color options regardless of how much local digital hoarding room you need.
If you don't happen to see the aforementioned Amazon prices reflect the full $50 discount at the time of your purchase, you might want to try adding your preferred fifth-gen iPad Air model to your digital cart and check for extra savings before finalizing your order.
That's because this seemingly unbeatable Black Friday deal involves a combination of instant and "checkout" savings, which is not what we can say about Amazon's more straightforward $80 price cut on cellular-enabled iPad Air 5 variants with your choice of 64 or 256 gigs of internal storage space.
That's... far from the best 5G-flavored offer on record, though, so if you can't live without cellular connectivity, it's probably wise to wait for at least slightly higher Cyber Monday or last-minute Christmas discounts.
In addition to an M1 processor that smokes the raw power of the best Android tablets available this holiday season, the iPad Air (2022) has a reasonably high-quality Liquid Retina IPS LCD screen going for it too, as well as excellent battery life, booming speakers, a very neat 12MP ultra-wide-angle front camera, always reliable top-mounted fingerprint sensor, and perhaps most importantly, unrivaled software support... for its price bracket.
