There’s no better tablet than the M1 iPad Air for most users. It uses the same M1 chip as Apple’s previous-generation iPad Pro and Macs to deliver excellent price-to-performance. Amazon is taking a stellar $149 off the tablet, making it an even better deal.

With the discount, you can get the M1 iPad Air for only $449. At this price point, you cannot find a better option than Apple’s offering.

Apple’s M1 chip was unveiled in late 2020. Despite its age, the SoC will impress you with its performance and efficiency, especially in a device as sleek as the iPad Air.

Besides the powerful chip, the 5th gen iPad Air comes with a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, 64GB storage, and Touch ID. The display misses out on 120Hz ProMotion support like the iPad Pro. However, this should not matter for most use cases.

The best part is that Amazon is taking $149 off on the iPad Air’s 256GB variant as well. Thanks to the discount, you get the 256GB iPad Air with an M1 chip for effectively the same price as the entry-level.

If you want AppleCare+ protection, Amazon is taking $149 off its bundle as well. So, you can get the 64GB iPad Air with two years of AppleCare+ for $528.99, down from $678.

The only catch is that the $149 off is not available on all M1 iPad Air colors.
