Black Friday is done and dusted for another year, but the sales are far from over. Whether you’re looking to buy the latest Apple iPad, checking out a Samsung Galaxy Tab, or thinking about something completely different, there are some fantastic Black Friday deals still available right now. With so many choices out there, we’re helping you out by picking out some of the best Black Friday tablet deals around. Read on while we take you through the highlights so you know exactly what you should buy and how much you can save.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite — $170, was $200
Although Samsung’s Android tablets don’t command quite the same market presence as the Galaxy smartphones, they are still the best Android tablets money can buy. That said, the flagship models are expensive, so if you’re looking for a pared-down Galaxy tablet that’s easy on the wallet, check out the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite. This one sports an 8.7-inch 1340 x 800 display, so while it’s on the slightly smaller side compared to standard tablets (which typically come in at 10 inches or more), it’s a good size for regular use while still being small enough to comfortably stow in your bag when you’re on the go. It comes loaded with
2021 Apple iPad — $299, was $329
Cheap tablets have their place, but if you want something that you’ll use for extended periods often (and will do so for a couple of years at least), then you need to consider an iPad. Apple’s tablets are still the ones we recommend for most people, with the standard 10-inch 2021 model representing an incredible value. Apple gave its 10-inch tablet an update this year, but that came with a considerable 50% price increase, and we don’t feel that the 2022 Apple iPad is really worth the extra money — for the money, the 9th-gen 2021 iPad is still where it’s at. It performs well, delivers a smooth iPadOS software experience, and has some notable upgrades over the previous model with its bumped-up base storage (64GB from 32GB) and greatly improved camera. For around three Benjamins, this Black Friday tablet deal is a great way to get your hands on an iPad without emptying your checking account.
2022 Apple iPad Air — $551, was $599
One of the reasons we can’t strongly recommend the new 10-inch 2022 iPad is that you can get the 2022 Apple iPad Air for not much more (at least when it’s on sale as it is right now), and it’s simply a better buy. That’s actually putting it lightly because the iPad Air was our top overall pick among the best tablets we’ve reviewed. The new 5th-gen iPad Air packs Apple’s fantastic M1 chip to deliver laptop-like performance in a tablet package, and one that costs considerably less than the iPad Pro. It’s a great mid-range option between the standard 10.2-inch iPad and the higher-end Pro models, and although it only offers 64GB of base onboard storage, that’s a compromise most of us can live with — you may just have to avail yourself of iCloud storage. The 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display is sharp and vibrant, and the iPad Air pairs well with accessories such as a keyboard case, letting you easily adapt the tablet for whatever use you wish.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra — $1,000, was $1,100
Although Apple still rules the tablet roost,
2021 Apple iPad Pro (M1 CPU, 12.9-Inch) — $1,050, was $1,099
On the other hand, if you want a truly capable tablet and it’s gotta be an iPad, then you should already know to look no further than the iPad Pro. This 2021 model is available in two sizes, 11 and 12.9 inches, but we recommend springing for the larger one, especially if you have any intentions of using it like a laptop with a good keyboard case. The iPad Pro 12.9-inch can easily handle it thanks to its M1 chipset paired with 8GB of
