You came to the wrong house if you’re shopping for weed jokes — we only distribute good wholesome content here on Verge Deals. For instance, both the 2020 version of the iPad Air and the 2021 model of the 11-inch iPad Pro are discounted to their lowest prices ever.
The 2020 iPad Air normally costs $749 but is discounted to $599.99 at Amazon. The price will appear to be $649.99, but if you add one to your cart, an extra $50 will get knocked off the final price of this lightweight 256GB tablet.
Alternatively, the 11-inch model of the 2021 iPad Pro usually goes for $800 in its 128GB configuration but can currently be found at Amazon and Best Buy for just $699.99. This is the lowest price we’ve seen for this tablet since Black Friday.
Both of these models feature displays that are roughly the same size; the iPad Air has a 10.9-inch screen compared to the slightly brighter 11-inch screen on the Pro. The display on the Pro also has a slightly higher resolution, but both models still include True Tone technology, which optimizes the temperature of the display based on your viewing environment.
The Pro also has a more extensive and powerful camera array with an additional 10MP ultrawide lens and a 12MP ultrawide front-facing camera. This is compared to the single 12MP wide-angle lens on the Air and the 7MP front-facing camera.
Arguably, the biggest differences between these two tablets are their processors. The 2020 iPad Air has an A14 Bionic chip that’s beginning to show its age a bit, while the Pro is equipped with Apple’s M1 CPU. While it’s no secret that the M1 outpaces older Apple processors by a wide margin, the 2020 iPad Air is still a gorgeous tablet with plenty of power for mobile applications. But for anyone planning to use their tablet as a laptop substitute, the iPad Pro would be a better choice.
