Apple 9.7-inch iPad

This is one of the best prices we've ever seen on Apple's super-popular entry level tablet. If you're looking to pick one up, today's the day.

$249 $329 $80 Off

This iPad features a 9.7-inch Retina display with a 1.2MP front-facing FaceTime HD camera and an 8MP iSight camera on the back. It includes Touch ID and supports Apple Pay. These tablets are also equipped with an A10 Fusion chip and have a battery that can last for up to 10 hours before needing to be recharged. If you're worried about getting your screen all smudged up with your fingerprints, you might want to take a look at the Apple Pencil which works as a stylus and unlocks some new creative tools when used with the iPad.

There's no indication of exactly how long this discount will last. We've seen the 9.7-inch iPad hang around at this price for weeks before, but we've also seen it sell out or hop back up to its retail price within days too. Regardless, right now's a great time to pick up a new iPad for yourself or for a loved one.
