Amazon has an amazing deal on the Apple Smart Keyboard Folio for iPad Pro and iPad Air. This super-slim case adds hardly any bulk to the tablet, despite including a full-size keyboard. And you can get one today for $79 below the usual price.

The deal is good for either the version of this case for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro or one that fits the 11-inch iPad Pro and the new 10.9-inch iPad Air.

Apple Smart Keyboard Folio is one of the best iPad accessories

The day I got my 12.9-inch iPad Pro, I also got the Smart Keyboard Folio. It was expensive back then, but I’ve never regretted the purchase. I use my tablet as my primary computer, and carry it with me whenever I travel. I want a slim, lightweight keyboard case, and that’s just what Apple created.

It wraps around the tablet, protecting it from scratches and dings. And there’s a full-size keyboard, ready to convert the iPad Pro into a laptop whenever you need it. I’ve used mine virtually every day for two years now and it’s still going strong.

The 12.9-inch version of the Apple Smart Keyboard Folio is normally $199, but Amazon knocked 40% off the cost, bringing it down to $119.97. The 11-inch version is ordinarily $179 but Amazon dropped its cost by 44% to only $99.97.

The keyboard case might be on sale because so many people are turning to the amazing Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad. While that model has an eye-catching design and a built-in trackpad, the Smart Keyboard Folio has some advantages. It’s much more affordable — especially with this sale — and it’s also far lighter in weight.
