Apple’s new iPad Air looks terrific, but let’s be honest with ourselves for a moment: most people don’t need to spend $500 for more power in a tablet that they’re mainly going to use for light web browsing and a bunch of other basic stuff. Once you realize that, you can get yourself a brand new iPad for literally half as much as Apple is charging for the iPad Air. Amazon has a fantastic sale right now that gets you a new 6th-generation Apple iPad starting at just $249.99 — a massive $80 discount. Or, if you need more storage you can bump up from 32GB to a 128GB iPad for only $329!
