Amazon Early Black Friday deal: The latest Apple iPad, iPad Air and iPad Pro are back on sale

256GB, 512GB models also for sale
See on Amazon
The Apple 10.2-inch iPad is the cheapest iPad model with a starting price of just $269 (normally $329) and yet it’s still a better tablet than most of the other non-Apple options. The 2021 model is still the most current as no 2022 model has been released yet. It features a 10.2″ Retina display with TruTone coupled with an Apple A13 Bionic chip with Neural Engine. You can choose 32 GB or 256 GB storage and either WiFi or WiFi + Cellular (4G) networks. Charging is done via Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector.
The 2022 Apple iPad Air was released earlier in March and starts at $519 (normally $519). It represents a healthy upgrade to the 10.2-inch iPad in almost every way. It has a larger screen size (10.9″ vs. 10.2″) with both True Tone and P3 wide colors. It has the same powerful Apple M1 chip as in the iPad Pro. Despite the more powerful hardware, the iPad Air is about the same size as the 10.2-inch iPad (thanks to the slimmer bezel) and also weighs slightly less. You can choose 32 GB or 256 GB of storage space and WiFi or WiFi + Cellular (5G) networks. Charging is done via the universal USB Type-C connector.
The Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the most powerful iPad you can get. It starts at $899 (normally $1099). Like the 10.2-inch iPad, the 2021 model is still the most current as no 2022 model has been released yet. The iPad Pro has the best 12.9-inch Mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion, Tru Tone and P3 wide colors, and is paired with the Apple M1 chip. You can choose 128GB, 256GB or 512GB of storage and either Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + Cellular (5G) network. Charging is through the USB Type-C connector.
Nintendo Switch OLED for $300.73
Amazon Store UK has the Nintendo Switch OLED with White Joy-Cons for around $300.73 with free shipping. That’s about the same price as the original non-OLED switch. The Nintendo Switch OLED features a larger, more vibrant OLED touchscreen, an upgrade to the horrendous OG standard, an Ethernet port on the docking station, and an exclusive Switch white shell and matching Joy-Cons. If you have the budget to jump for this, we definitely think it’s worth the upgrade over the vanilla switch.
Please note that as this is shipped from Amazon Store UK and not Amazon, you will receive the UK version of the Switch OLED. The Switch OLED is not region-locked, so you can play US games without any problems. However, you will receive a UK plug. You will need a UK to US plug adapter to charge your Switch here in the United States.
65-inch LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for $1597
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the 2022 LG Evo C2 65″ OLED TV. The LG C2 is one of the best TVs on the market right now.

The Evo C2 is also a perfect gaming TV. It has four HDMI 2.1 ports and a native 120Hz panel that supports true 4K@120Hz passthrough when paired with a PS5, Xbox Series X, or RTX 30 series PC. There’s also Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), this TV’s version of adaptive sync technology, as well as Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), where the TV automatically switches to a lower latency when it detects gameplay. The LG C2 also supports HGiG, which is automatically calibrated for tone mapping specific to your TV model.
