Special Offer: Save $ 130 on the iPad Pro or Galaxy Tab S7
Samsung and Apple are always vying to be king of tablets and they are leveling each other this weekend in terms of savings. Right now, you can save $ 130 on either the 11-inch iPad Pro 2020 or the Galaxy Tab S7.
The discount on the iPad Pro is especially noteworthy as Apple is known to be narrow minded when it comes to selling prices. This offer is only for the 256GB Wi-Fi model of the 2020 tablet and buyers will not be disappointed. Combining great hardware, a great display, and respectable battery life, it is a very useful productivity tool. It’s currently on sale for $ 769 ($ 130 off).

If you have an older device to trade in, you can get it for just $ 199.99 ($ 530 off).

Amazon Fire Tablet Deals
Amazon’s Fire tablet range is one of the most affordable ways to immerse yourself in the experience, with some models starting well under $ 100. You can choose from a number of sizes – 7, 8 or 10 inches – and all tablets run on Amazon’s own Fire OS. You won’t find the popular Google Play Store here, but you should get by with the Kindle app, Prime Video, and more.
Microsoft Surface Pro offerings
If you’re seriously thinking of replacing your laptop with a tablet, the Microsoft Surface line is the way to go. They often forego the mobile-based chipset for a full-size Intel Core processor. You will also find larger 12-inch displays in the flagship Surface Pro product line. With the high-end Surface Pro X, you can even use 4G LTE connectivity for work on the go.
