If you want a fantastic but affordable tablet, then head over to Amazon and pick up the 64GB 2018 iPad Air that Amazon is selling for $459, down $40 from the retail price of $499. It’s the second-lowest price we’ve ever seen for this model, but the previous drop happened way back in August and only lasted for around a day.

It’s possible this price drop will only stick around for about as long, so if you’re interested, snag this model while it’s still available.

If you’d rather hold out for the new 10.2-inch iPad that starts at $329, that’s fine, but this model will serve you better for longer. As I pointed out earlier this month, the iPad Air is faster, it starts with double the storage, and the display is a tad larger. Here are a few additional stats for this model.

  • 10.5-inch Retina Display with True Tone and wide color
  • A12 Bionic chip
  • Touch ID
  • 8 megapixel back camera
  • 7 megapixel FaceTime HD front camera
  • Up to 10 hours of battery life
