Now is a great time to pick up Apple’s iPad ahead of the upcoming school year. The base 10.2-inch tablet is currently $30 off, down to $299, which is the best price we’ve seen. It might not have all the bells and whistles of the iPad Air, but it’s a solid, budget-friendly tablet that can likely handle anything you throw at it. Elsewhere on the web, you can pick up the Chromecast with Google TV for just $40 and the Beats Studio Buds for $100. Here are this week’s best tech deals to get today.
10.2 inch iPad
Apple’s base iPad is available for $299, while the 256GB model is $80 off, down to just $399. This is the cheapest iPad you can get, and we gave it a score of 86 for its strong performance, center stage cameras, first-generation Apple Pencil support, and great battery life.

Apple TV 4K
The Apple TV 4K is back in stock at Amazon and is priced at $120. While it’s not quite as cheap as last month’s Prime Day ($109), this remains one of the best prices we’ve seen for our favorite high-end set-top box. We gave the device 90 points for its fast performance, support for Dolby Vision and Atmos, HomeKit integration, and much-improved Siri remote.
