Apple just unveiled an all-new iPad Air for 2020 and it looks amazing. The only problem is that it costs $599 and up which is not great for those on a budget. If you don't need the latest and greatest model, you could save a solid amount on the previous-gen iPad Air 2 (opens in new tab) today at Woot. Prices start at just $219.99 for the refurbished devices there and, though they may show some cosmetic wear, they are restored to work like new and come with a 90-day warranty.
