It comes in four fun shades—blue, yellow, pink, and silver—and boasts a modern build with thinner bezels. iPadOS runs fast on this device thanks to the A14 Bionic chip, and you can even split-screen the 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display for easy multitasking, or use it like a laptop by pairing it with Apple’s Magic Keyboard Folio ($169, was $249 at Amazon). It’s down to the lowest price we’ve ever tracked at $100 off.

Many folks opt for the mini thanks to its compact build, which also makes it ideal for note-taking with an Apple Pencil—second-generation at $89 (was $129) or USB-C at $71 (was $79). It’s actually about the size of a classic notebook.
