Apple's new iPad is the cheapest it's ever been on Amazon right now

Frequent fliers know the importance of having a portable, lightweight device to travel with. Whether you need to work while you fly or enjoy reading, playing games, and streaming content on the go, packing an Apple iPad is a great way to stay connected and entertained without overstuffing your carry-on with a bulky laptop.

If you don’t already have an iPad, you’re in luck. Amazon just slashed the prices on heaps of Apple products for Black Friday, including the new Apple iPad. Right now, you can buy the ultra-thin tablet for 24 percent off, which comes out to a savings of $80. At $249, the iPad is the cheapest it’s ever been on Amazon.

The wi-fi enabled device comes with 32 gigabytes of storage and features a 10.2-inch retina display. It also includes a touch ID fingerprint sensor, lighting connector, stereo speakers, eight-megapixel back camera, and 1.2-mexapixel HD front camera. A single charge will provide up to 10 hours of battery life for the versatile device, which can connect to a smart keyboard and works with an Apple Pencil.

Amazon shoppers say the low price can’t be beat and that it’s great for business travel.

“I typically travel with my MacBook Pro and noticed my colleagues were traveling and attending meetings with an iPad… [I] decided to buy one myself, [and] what a difference this tool makes for business travel and getting work done… I love the ability to access files, have a nice keyboard, open several documents while emailing clients all in a lightweight portable package,” one reviewer wrote.

Others were happy to upgrade from their older devices to this new model. “This iPad 2019 10.2 7th generation 128GB tablet replaces an iPad 2. There is no comparison! This iPad is fast and runs apps with absolutely no problems,” another said.

If you’re in the market for an upgrade or want to invest in your first iPad, now’s the time to shop the Apple device on Amazon. It’s available in space gray, silver, and gold — but hurry, who knows how long this Black Friday sale will last.
