Amazon Early Black Friday Deal: The Newest Apple iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Pro Are Back on Sale
2021 Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro (Wi‑Fi, 128GB)
256GB, 512GB models also on sale
See on Amazon
The Apple 10.2-inch iPad is the least expensive iPad model with a starting price of only $269 (normally $329) and yet it’s still a better tablet than most other non-Apple options. The 2021 model is still the most current, since no 2022 model has been released yet. It features a 10.2″ Retina display with TruTone paired with an Apple A13 Bionic chip with Neural Engine. You can opt for either 32GB or 256GB of storage and either WiFi or WiFi + Cellular (4G) networking. Charging is done through Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector.
The 2022 Apple iPad Air was released earlier in March and starts at $519 (normally $519). It represents a healthy upgrade to the 10.2-inch iPad in nearly all aspects. It boasts a larger screen size (10.9″ vs 10.2″) with both True Tone and P3 wide color. It has the same powerful Apple M1 chip found in the iPad Pro. Despite the more powerful hardware, the iPad Air is roughly the same size as the 10.2-inch iPad (thanks to the slimmer bezel) and weighs a bit less as well. You can opt for either 32GB or 256GB of storage and either WiFi or WiFi + Cellular (5G) networking. Charging is done through the universal USB Type-C connector.
The Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the most powerful iPad you can get. It starts at $899 (normally $1099). Like the 10.2-inch iPad, the 2021 model is still the most current, since no 2022 model has yet been released. The iPad Pro boasts the best-in-class 12.9″ Mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion, Tru Tone, and P3 wide color, and it’s paired with the Apple M1 chip. You can opt for either 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of storage and either WiFi or Wifi + Cellular (5G) networking. Charging is done through the USB Type-C connector.
Nintendo Switch OLED for $305.74
Amazon Store UK has the Nintendo Switch OLED with White Joy-Cons for about $300.73 with free shipping. That’s only $5 more than the original non-OLED Switch. The Nintendo Switch OLED features a larger, more vibrant OLED touchscreen display, an upgrade to the terrible OG kickstand, an ethernet port on the docking station, and an exclusive white Switch shell and matching Joy-Cons. If you have the budget to spring for this one, we definitely think it’s worth the upgrade over the vanilla Switch.
Note that since this is shipped from Amazon Store UK and not Amazon, you’ll be receiving the UK version of the Switch OLED. The Switch OLED is not region locked, so you’ll be able to play US games without any hassle. However, you’ll be receiving a UK plug. You’ll need to get a UK to US plug adapter in order to charge your Switch here in the States.
2020 Apple MacBook Air 13″ M1 Laptop for $799
2020 Apple MacBook Air 13″ Retina Display M1 Chip, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD
See on Amazon
This Amazon Prime Early Black Friday deal is back! The late-2020 Apple MacBook Pro 13″ laptop was one of the first MacBooks equipped with the Apple M1 chip. The M1 outperforms every Intel CPU found on previous generation MacBook Airs… in order to get a better CPU you’d have to pay hundreds more for an M2, M1 Pro, or M1 Ultra CPU.
Newest Apple TV 4K 32GB and 64GB Both on Sale
The newest Apple TV is still discounted to the price we saw during the Amazon Early Black Friday Sale. It features an A12 Bionic processor that boosts graphics performance, video decoding, and audio processing over the previuos model and delivers high frame rate HDR with Dolby Vision. The new Apple remote is also a significant upgrade over its predecessors with its inclusion of a 5-way clickpad, mute button, and dedicated power button that works for your TV, receiver, and Apple TV.

Wingspan Board Game for $35.62
Wingspan is an incredibly good board game. So good in fact that we deemed it the best board game of 2019. Improbably enough, the year’s hottest game is one about keeping birds in a nature reserve. But the wide appeal of the theme, lovely art and simple rules meant lots of players got to enjoy the fiendish engine-building game beneath. A choice of a mere four actions blossoms into an excruciating balance between adding birds, feeding them and scoring points. Yet tricky as it is, the pace of play leaves you itching for another try to evolve your strategies, while 170 bird cards ensure every game is different. The board game is worth it even at the $65 retail price, but today it’s 45% off.
Adata Premium 1TB M.2 SSD for PS5 for $89.99
ADATA Premium 1TB PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 SSD (up to 6100MBps)
See on Amazon
This is the lowest price we’ve seen so far for a 1TB PS5-compatible SSD, and it even includes a heatspreader. The Adata Premium SSD boasts transfer speeds of up to 6,100MB/s, which is more than fast enough to surpass the PS5’s recommended minimum speed threshold of 5,500MB/s. Yes there are faster SSDs out there, but if your intention is to put this in your PS5, then that extra speed is worthless because you’re bottlenecked by the stock PS5 SSD. Better to save that money and put it to better use.
Apple AirPods 2 for $89.99
Pick up a pair of Apple AirPods 2 wireless earbuds for the lowest price we’ve seen. It includes a charging case that you plug in via USB Type-C. It’s not the AirPods 3, but it’s nearly half the price with 90% of the quality and functionality.
65″ LG Evo C2 4K OLED Gaming TV for $1597
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the 2022 LG Evo C2 65″ OLED TV. The LG C2 is currently one of the best TVs on the market. Unlike other brands who have only recently started pushing out OLED TVs, LG has several generations of improvements over the years. The C2 is the newest model and, unlike the previous generation C1, features an “Evo” OLED panel that offers higher peak brightness (the one area that OLED TVs in general could improve upon) and thus even wider HDR range.
The Evo C2 is also a perfect gaming TV. It has four HDMI 2.1 ports and a native 120Hz panel that supports true 4K @ 120Hz passthrough when paired with a PS5, Xbox Series X, or RTX 30 series equipped PC. There’s also variable refresh rate (VRR), which is this TV’s version of adaptive sync technology, as well as auto low latency mode (ALLM), where the TV automatically switches to a lower latency when it detects gameplay. The LG C2 also supports HGiG, which is automatically calibrated tone mapping specific to your TV model.
