Both Best Buy and Amazon have some great Memorial Day sales on a wide variety of products, and we’ve spotted several great deals on several Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab models. The biggest discounts offer up to $130 off the retail price, and these deals are good through Monday.
Best Buy’s deals include the latest model 10.2-inch Apple iPad, marked down from $330 to $250, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 10.5-inch, marked down from $730 to $600, while Amazon’s has the latest 12.9-inch iPad Pr marked down to $963 from $999. While the Galaxy Tab S and iPad Pros are the cream of the crop when it comes to tablets, the standard iPad is one of the best all-purpose tablets available on the market today.
The iPad 10.2 is a great all-around tablet with sufficient space — 32GB worth — to store your music, photos, videos, and even a few downloaded movies in HD, too. With a 10.2-inch Retina Display now standard even on the cheapest iPads, all your content looks vibrant and colorful, and it supports the Apple Pencil if you’re feeling a little creative. And with support now for the Smart Keyboard — new to this generation — you could even use it as a laptop too (with a lot more power than those cheap ones you see elsewhere).
Step up to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 if you need more processing power and storage (and especially if you use other Android devices). All your content syncs seamlessly with your Tab, and it’s 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display is a step above the standard iPad, and rivals the iPad Pro in its clarity and color. You’ll get 256GB of storage space with this particular model, and an optional keyboard with trackpad instantly turns your Tab into a more traditional laptop experience.
At the top of the heap is the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. A beast of a tablet, it’s 12.9-inch Liquid Retina Display is hands down the best display on any device. The included A12 Bionic processor makes the iPad Pro fly and is more powerful than most desktops and laptops currently available. Add in the Apple Pencil, and the brand new Magic Keyboard — which now includes a trackpad, too — and this just might replace both your laptop and desktop with how good it is.
