If you’re planning on buying a new iPad Air anytime soon, what ever you do, don’t buy it from Apple. We’ve got nothing against Apple stores, of course, but you can save a nice chunk of cash by picking one up from Amazon instead. The nation’s top online retailer just slashed $50 off the price of Apple’s newest iPad Air, chopping it down to $449.99 from $500. It’s the biggest discount yet on the new Air, and there’s no telling how long it’ll last.

Of note, if you only plan to use your iPad for simple things like browsing the web, messing with apps, and streaming shows and movies, you’re far better off saving even more money and picking up a current-generation iPad while it’s on sale for just $249.
