This is one of the best tablets on the market and was already an affordable choice before. But thanks to this huge price drop, it's the cheapest price it's ever been. It comes with an A13 Bionic chip, a 10.2-inch retina display, Wi-Fi, and a 12MP front/8MP back camera as well.

The 9th-Gen Apple iPad features some great specs for its price point. It has the A14 and A13 Bionic CPUs, respectively, with two large high-performance CPU cores and four energy-efficient CPU cores. The A14 has a 10.9-inch liquid retina display and a 12MP front/12MP back camera, while the A13 comes with a 10.2-inch retina display and a 12MP front/8MP back camera.

The only downside is that 64GB, while not a bad amount of storage, is a little low. The 256GB version is much better but still a bit costly, though you're also paying for the display quality and specs, which most other tablets can't top.
