There were some pretty great iPad Air deals last week over the two-day Amazon Prime Early Access Sale, one of which was $80 off the 64GB WiFi model. That lowest price is back now - although this time, you're not going to need a Prime membership to get the deal. When the iPad Air went back up to full price last week post-Prime Day, we weren't sure if we would see this price again, making this a welcome surprise. The previous lowest price was $549, so this further $30 is a nice extra saving on a very powerful and useful tablet.

Bringing the M1 chip of the iPad Pro to a lower price point, the iPad Air is a surprisingly powerful tablet for the price. The screen is big and beautiful, stretching from the near bezel-less sides of the device, and the camera on the rear is capable of snapping some really lovely pics. This deal brings it back to its lowest price only a few days after it went back up to full price. This is an excellent tablet for everyone, and this deal makes it a whole $80 cheaper than elsewhere - a pretty great saving if you ask us.

The iPad Air isn't, perhaps, quite as mad as the iPad Pro - the camera on the back is a conventional single-lens affair, and the screen lacks the impressive refresh rate of the more expensive Pro, but it also saves you around $200 in the process. For that saving, you're still getting the M1 laptop chip, a stunning edge-to-edge display, and a selection of pretty sweet colors. With this current saving on Amazon, it's an even better buy, saving you a further $80.
