New iPad Air (4th generation, 2020) down to $559

The starting price of the new iPad Air (4th generation, 2020 model, 10.9″, Wifi-only, 64GB on-board) is $599 but for a limited time B&H Photo is offering the green color scheme for $559. This is not a leafy dark green, more of a soothing pastel pistachio-ice-cream green.

Interesting to note how the “storage steps” have gone with Apple. With this model, there are two steps, 64GB and 256GB and the difference is +$150 because now Apple considers the jump from 64GB to 128GB a “half stop” ($50), while the jump from 128GB to 256GB remains a “full stop” ($100).

The cellular option (4G LTE) is the usual +$130…

With Google and manufacturers ignoring Android tablets (Chromebooks are the new tablets seems to be good enough for Google these days) even Apple haters had and have been turning to iPads 🙂
