Rarely on sale, Amazon also has the 256GB iPad Air on sale for $649.99. That's the cheapest price we've seen for the higher capacity model and one of the best deals this week. 

In our iPad Air 2020 review, we called it the best tablet for most people. And it's easy to see why. You get an elegant and thin design and a display that's bright, sharp and colorful. Other highlights include an excellent webcam, USB-C charging and support fo the 2nd gen Apple Pencil.

The only real strike against this slate is the lack of Face ID, but the power button includes a Touch ID sensor for easily unlocking the device.

In our web surfing battery test, the iPad Air lasted an excellent 10 hours and 29 minutes, so you should have no problem making it through most of the day. Not bad for a tablet that weighs only 1 pound.
