Best Pre-Black Friday Laptop and Tablet Sales
Save $160 on a 6th-generation iPad (32GB)
This 6th-generation iPad normally costs $459.99 at Best Buy, but it will only cost you $299 at Wal-Mart now. That means you’ll save more than 30% on this tablet. You can also find this same deal on Amazon.
This 9.7-inch iPad was first released in March of 2018, so it’s not the newest model. However, this tablet comes with the same processor and most of the same features as the newest iPad. You will get support for the Apple Pencil (1st generation), a quad-core processor, and an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video. The newest iPad is a little bigger at 10.2 inches, and it has an electronic SIM card and supports smart keyboards. Other than that, the only real difference between the 2019 iPad and the 6th generation iPad is the $160 price difference.
The deal from Wal-Mart is for the WiFi + Cellular model, which means you can access the internet even if you are not connected to a WiFi network.
Save $285 on an 11.6” Chromebook
If you’re looking for a simple laptop to browse the web and watch some YouTube videos, this Chromebook is a great option. Originally priced at $499.99, you can now get this powerful laptop for $205.99, which means you’ll save nearly 60%.
While Chromebooks don’t have the same amount of storage space that normal laptops have, you will get an Intel processor, 4GB of DDR4 RAM, and a USB-3 port for ultra-fast data transfers. Plus, you even get a CD-ROM drive, so you can watch DVDs and listen to CDs.
Save $200 on HP 14” Laptop
If you’re looking for a laptop with a bit more power, this HP laptop has more features than most desktop computers. Originally priced at $599.99, you can now get the HP 14 Laptop for $399.99 from Wal-Mart. That means you’ll save more than 30%.
For this reduced price, you get a fast Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and 256GB of SSD internal storage space. With all of its features, you might not be able to play many new games, but you can do just about everything else. You also get a long-lasting battery that will charge up to 50% in around 45 minutes.
