Tech 16-10-2021 Mashable 35

TL;DR: Buy used and save 6% on the 8th generation Apple iPad 10.2-inch (WiFi, 32GB), available for just $399 as of Oct. 16.

If you’ve been contemplating an iPad for years, but always close the browser tab before purchasing, here’s a hot tip for you: It’s the perfect time to add to your Apple arsenal. Why? Because thanks to this sweet deal, you can get a pre-loved iPad from 2020 on sale for under $400.

Pre-loved just means there may have been another owner previously, but it’s no big deal. Since then, it’s been refurbished and certified to work as if it’s brand new. Listed as grade-A, it will arrive in near-mint condition with minimal, if any, signs of wear. It’s as if you’re purchasing it brand new, minus some of the hefty price tag.

The 8th-generation iPad is an excellent entry-level model for those looking for a simple, affordable tablet to tackle daily tasks, stream their favorite shows, or endlessly scroll on social networks. It’s not the most advanced iPad model out today, but it still holds its own. It’s powered by the Apple A12 Bionic Chip, which gives you impressive console-level processor performance. In other words, it can handle itself when you have multiple apps and tabs open at once. Its 10.2-inch LED-backlit IPS touch-sensitive Retina display ensures everything you see and do is crisp, vibrant, and immersive. And the 32.4Whr battery gives you up to 10 hours of battery life to stream, FaceTime, browse, or play games.

The 32GB of storage doesn’t give you a ton of room for saving and downloading files, but that’s A-OK because overloading it with photos, videos, and documents will just slow you down anyway. Plus, isn’t that what iCloud is for? Any photos or videos you snap with the 8MP back camera or 1.2MP front camera can be sent directly to your cloud storage.

Originally, you’d have to pay $429 for the iPad (8th generation), but for a limited time, you can score this refurbished one on sale for just $399. And you even get your choice of space gray or gold.
