Countless celebrations occurred across the country to commemorate the Declaration of Independence yesterday. Another thing worth celebrating is the onslaught of Walmart holiday sales. Currently, for the sweet price of $249, saving you $80 from its original retail price of $329. We’ve also uncovered a deal on the iPad Pro from the same sale, at $180 off for Fourth of July weekend.
While laptops and computers are indispensable, and also on sale right now, tablets are much more compact and lightweight and can be easily shoved into your bag. Besides, they can perform almost all the tasks that computers can do. The Apple iPad is a wonderful option. It has a stunning display, a speedy processor, and an impressive battery life, so getting it for the affordable price of $249 is definitely a steal.
The latest model is so intuitive and powerful that you can use it any way you want — via touch, a keyboard, or even the Apple Pencil. In fact, we gave it a 9 out of 10 score in our comprehensive review of the product written last year. This tablet has a 9.7-inch display and a slim aluminum body. With a 2,048 x 1,536 screen resolution, it promises gorgeous, crisp, and sharp picture quality, whether you’re watching a movie, playing a game, or writing a document.
The latest iPad is powered by the A10 Fusion chip, with an embedded M10 co-processor that makes multitasking and switching between multiple apps lightning-fast. You can play games with virtually zero lag, and the graphics display has tremendously improved compared to the older A9 chip. Its processor also enables access to the latest, most state-of-the-art apps, including augmented reality experiences.
