On the deal front, Amazon currently offers the 11-inch iPad Pro in its 128GB Wi-Fi enabled configuration for $749. That’s $50 less than the 2021 tablet’s regular asking price of $799, which is the price of the 2022 10.9 inch iPad Air with 256GB of storage.
The iPad Air may be the new darling of Apple’s tablet lineup, but the iPad Pro still has some extra features worth considering given that they’re the same price tag today. First off, it has a 120Hz refresh rate screen for smoother scrolling and gaming, Face ID for easier unlocking (the Air uses Touch ID), and a four-speaker audio setup for better sound when it’s time to binge . However, both the Pro and the new Air models feature Apple’s M1 processor, so they should be equally fast.
Which one is best to go with? Well, it’s a subject that’s been hotly debated the latest episode of The Vergecastand while you probably can’t go wrong with either tablet, it’s nice to save money doing it (the iPad Pro is the better all-round choice). Read our 2021 iPad Pro review.

When switching from gaming to smart home, Google’s Nest Audio represents excellent value for money. The smart speaker is relatively compact, and with its five color options, it easily fits into most home decor environments. Most importantly, Nest Audio offers great sound quality for a speaker of its size and price point, which is typically $99.99 each.
That price is almost as good as it gets right now, because Google sells a two-pack of speakers for $129. That pushes the price down to $64.50 each. This brings the Nest Audio very close to its all-time low price of $59.99, allowing you to inexpensively outfit two rooms in your home with one smart speaker, or set up a pair to work side-by-side in stereo.
The Nest Audio natively supports the Google Assistant, so you can use your voice to control other connected smart devices or have the news and weather read aloud on demand. These little speakers might not have all the bass and booming volume in the world – and Google recently downgraded some of its multi-speaker capabilities following a lawsuit – but this two-pack is still a great multiroom bang for your buck.
