For the previous couple of months, the current-generation iPad (to not be confused with the brand-new iPad Air and iPad Mini) has been on one thing of a pricing rollercoaster.

Apple fees $329 for the 32GB mannequin, after all, however distributors like Amazon, MassGenie and Walmart have regularly run gross sales for $249 and even $239. (Again in mid-December, it briefly dipped to $229, however I have not seen it that low since. Perhaps once more on Prime Day?)

For now, the iPad 9.7 (Wi-Fi, 32GB) is again to $249 shipped at Amazon. That is for the silver and space-gray colours; for no matter motive, gold is priced at $318.

At this writing, Walmart additionally had the iPads for $249, together with the gold choice.

Though I not too long ago acknowledged that the brand new $399 iPad Mini was a particular no-sale for me, this bigger iPad — particularly at this value — deserves a glance.

Certainly, whenever you examine it with the $150 Hearth HD 10, you are getting quicker efficiency, significantly better cameras, extra apps to select from, an ad-free consumer expertise and different advantages. (I additionally discover iOS a lot simpler to navigate than Amazon’s clunky Hearth OS, however that is simply my two cents.)

What do you assume? Is $249 an honest value for a current-gen iPad?
