The time has come for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the web’s best tech deals includes a hands-on deal for Apple’s latest iPad Air, which is up to $559 on Amazon and walmart. Outside of a very brief dip to $549 last month, this is the lowest price we’ve seen for the 10.9-inch tablet, which only launched in March and has a MSRP $600.

Like we have already notedthe new Air is a good compromise between the Cheaper 10.2-inch iPad and the Premium iPad Pro. It lacks the higher refresh rate, better speakers and larger storage (at 128GB) of the latter, but its M1 chip makes it nearly as fast, its USB-C port and front camera are improved over the previous generation, and its large screen and accessory support make it well suited for both media consumption and casual work. The base iPad is still the best value for most, but if you’d rather avoid this tablet’s more dated design and lower performance ceiling, the M1-equipped Air should be a better buy than the Pro. until the latter receives a refreshment. You can read our review for a deeper dive. Besides iPads, our roundup of deals includes a steep discount on Terraform Marsa popular board game we have already recommended in our ultimate board game gift guide. It is available for $38 at the time of this writing, which is the lowest price we’ve tracked in over a year. We’ve included this one in the “heavier fare” section of our freebies guide, so it’s likely to be a little too complex, time-consuming (over two hours per game), and challenging for relative beginners. But for more involved players, it should provide an engaging and deeply replayable card drafting game, a game in which players are tasked with turning the red planet green. Again you can take a look at our review for more details.

Beyond that, we also have deals on a bunch of well-reviewed gaming gear, a soundbar and hybrid streamer from Roku, an entry-level Wacom drawing tablet, various video games, chargers USB-C, SSDs, and more. You can find our full curated list below.

Most people don't yet need to pay extra for the higher speeds of a PCI Express 4.0 SSD like WD's Black SN850, but if you have a PS5 and want to expand its internal storage, this will answer Sony's requirements and will operate effectively.
