Apple's latest 9.7-inch iPad is now just $229, $100 off its usual price and cheapest ever

Vlad, 19 December 2018

Apple's newest non-Pro iPad, the 9.7-inch model launched in March this year, can now be yours for the lowest price we've ever seen. Normally starting at $329 for the 32GB model, you can now grab the same tablet for only $229, both at Amazon and Walmart.

Not only do you save $100, but at $229 this is an amazing deal that isn't to be missed if you're looking for a very capable tablet that won't break the bank. It's also compatible with the first generation Apple Pencil.

The slate comes with Apple's A10 Fusion chip, 2GB of RAM, a Retina Display, and a 32.4 Wh battery. It's unclear how long this deal will last, so do act fast if you're interested. Note though that even if you order one right now, it will not arrive at your doorstep before Christmas.

4gb iPhone xs Max beat a 10gb one plus and 8gb in a speed test and ram handling was worse but pretty obvious that it iOS is more than 10% efficient in ram management. I'd say at least 30% better

iOS might be 10% more efficient in RAM management, not 100% more as would be needed to match 4GB RAM.
