Apple's iPad models constitute some of best tablets around, and the entry-level iPad is a solid entry-level option, especially when you can find it at a discount. The tablet recently saw its price slashed by Apple after the iPad Air and iPad Pro debuted, and now Amazon's Memorial Day sale has shrunk it even further. Place your iPad order today and you'll pay just $329 for the 64GB model -- a new record low for the device.

Apple's 10th-gen iPad is a solid device that offers a lot of features for the average user. There are a number of improvements over its predecessor, including a larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, an improved 12-megapixel camera, better speakers and the A14 Bionic chip for faster performance. It's also swapped to USB-C. This model comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, as well as Center Stage, which makes this a solid iPad for video-calling or streaming. The higher-capacity variant is also seeing savings, this time of $25 for the 256GB model.

Hey, did you know? CNET Deals texts are free, easy and save you money.

It's worth noting that this iPad is not compatible with the Apple Pencil 2 or the new Apple Pencil Pro, so you'll have to use the first-gen model and a USB-C dongle or grab the USB-C Pencil, both of which are sold separately. That said, our main gripe with this iPad was the cost over the older (but still functional) ninth-gen model -- but this price cut solves that problem. 

Is the basic iPad not for you? Be sure to check out our roundup of the best iPad deals for savings across Apple's tablet lineup. Not sure that a tablet will cut the mustard? Our list of the best Apple Memorial Day deals should have something for everyone.
