It looks to be a clearance sale. Seems a good deal if you want more storage and better display than the base iPad.

Its front camera is also much better. And it supports fast charging.

I need something for my 3 yr old to learn educational stuff. I think this is overkill. Would be great if the base ones went into sale with a coupon code. Nevertheless a good deal

This is the lowest price I have seen for iPad Air 3.

If someone is looking for an iPad, IMO the extra $100 over base iPad is worthwhile, considering iPad typically can be used for 5 years or more. The 32GB storage of the base iPad is simply too small; 64GB is still small but much more reasonable. The better display and front camera can be quite useful too.

I was contemplating getting that too! I ended up not getting it and just ordered this iPad Air because I wanted the laminated screen feature.
Wish Space Grey was in stock.

Thanks OP

The CPU of Air 3 and Gen 8 is A12. Gen 6's CPU is A10.

I still have the normal gen 4 iPad and I would be ordering this so fast if I haven't already ordered the iPad Pro. Unfortunately, I got a 120Hz phone this year and I'm in the 120Hz sect now... good bye savings.

But good deal OP! Upvoted

Maybe wait for Back to school for the new iPad Air if you are not in hurry. USB-C vs Lightning is a deal-breaker for some.

Thanks for the post! Ordered. Got the iPad 8th gen 32 GB for wife last week. Will be ordering 64 GB iPad Air 3rd gen for myself. Good price point for a very functional device.

For note taking I would recommend Air 4, if budget allows. Air 4 is compatible with Pencil 2. Air 3 is compatible with Pencil 1.

Air 4 is more expensive. It probably will cost more than $700.
