The current generation iPad returns to its Black Friday price: $ 250



Missed Black Friday? No problem, the 2018 iPad is again on sale at the same price.

In about eight months, you will hear me begin to pitch my usual speech before Black Friday: "Every day is a black Friday!" Here we are at the end of February and you can buy an iPad at the same price as at the end of November.

Indeed, for a limited period and within the limits of available stocks, Amazon has the current generation. iPad 9.7 (Wi-Fi, 32 GB) for $ 249.99 delivered. It is available in silver and gray space at this price; the rose gold model will cost you $ 279.99. Regular price for all: $ 329.

I will not lie: I consider the iPad as the best tablet, a point is everything. Of course, there are much cheaper options – the Amazon Fire HD 8 is on sale again for $ 60, compared to $ 80 normally.

But this iPad is bigger and faster, with much better cameras, a wider choice of apps, an ad-free user experience and other benefits. And although this version of the iPad is approaching 12 months, an updated model could still be on the horizon, the Rumors and reports swirling around a potential Apple event in late March suggest that it will not involve new material. In addition, at $ 250, this iPad 2018 does not seem too expensive. (Do not forget that it was not so long ago, you could not buy an iPad for less than $ 500.)

So, if you missed the Black Friday offers, remember what I always say: what is cheap is for those who wait. In this case, they come back.
