This sleek iPad Air has dropped to its lowest price ever — at $399, it's over 30% off

Apple recently announced a brand-new lineup of iPads, so you know what that means: discounts on older models! Right now, you can score a 2022 iPad Air for an unheard-of price at Amazon. This model comes with 64GB of memory, Wi-Fi 6 compatibility and a 10.9-inch display. For those not keeping score, that makes for one heck of a tablet.

This model is available in five different colors: blue, pink, purple, Space Gray (shown above) and Starlight.

We could go on about the Retina Display and how it looks mind-blowingly good, or mention that this is one of your best options for entertainment on long flights (just in time for summer travel season), but we'll leave it at this: At over 30% off, this is the lowest price this iPad has ever been.

If you don't have a tablet or you're using a much older iPad, the M1 chip is a worthy upgrade. It's lightning fast — and no, that isn't a pun about the Lightning cable connector — while remaining incredibly portable and lightweight. It does all of this without sacrificing power or features. The 2022 iPad Air still comes with Touch ID (but not Face ID), high-resolution cameras and much more.

It's also compatible with the Apple Pencil (2nd generation) and the Magic Keyboard. Pair these two accessories with the iPad, and you have a decent laptop replacement on your hands. Oh, and did we mention the keyboard doubles as a protective cover for the display?

Both the front and back cameras are 12-megapixel, and the front camera utilizes the Center Stage feature to keep you in the middle of the screen even if you're moving around. Fans say it's an ideal pick for everything from working on the go to playing your favorite games when you've got a bit of downtime.

This iPad has over 11,500 five-star reviews — that's 89% of its total reviews, by the way.

One power user swears by this tablet as an on-the-go work machine: "The Apple iPad Air ... is a true workhorse, seamlessly blending power and portability. Its compatibility with MacBook-like features makes it perfect for productivity tasks, offering a familiar environment for work on the go."

Speaking of power, a shopper weighed in thusly: "It gets used for 3-6 hours every day and I always leave it turned on 24/7 and I only end up having to charge it every 3-4 days. I take it everywhere with me because while it's not very small, it's still smaller than any laptop and will fit in a large purse or tote that I carry around daily."

And if you're looking for something to play some of your favorite games on? One gamer shared, "I got this to play Genshin Impact and Honkai Star Rail and the graphics are beautiful, there's no lag and no memory storage issues."

Customers found very little to complain about, with the biggest gripe focusing on the camera. "The only downside is the position of the front-facing camera. It should have been like the iPad 10." (The iPad 10 has a landscape-oriented front-facing camera, unlike this model.)

Another issue? No Face ID: "It's a slower log-in because of it, but it's not a huge issue for me, personally."

Four out of five colors are on sale. If you need a little bit more storage space, you can snag the 256GB version for $200 more.
