Check out our review of Apple's newest tablet. We gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and said "... for anyone not wanting to spend a dollar more on an iPad than they absolutely have to, or are buying in bulk for education or enterprise, this new iPad is absolutely the new, better best value in tech today."

The most-recent iPad has a 10.2-inch Retina display with a 2243 x 1668 pixel resolution. Our review points out this size, which is larger than previous generations, helps with productivity since you can put apps side-by-side and work with both of them at the same time.

It also comes with the A10 Fusion chip, a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and a 10-hour battery life. You'll get the 8MP 1080p camera on the back with a 1.2MP 720p camera on the front. Some of these things, like the A10 Fusion chip and the cameras, aren't quite up to par with Apple's more advanced machines like the iPad Pro, but they help keep the cost at a much more reasonable level.
