If you're looking for the best tablet experience, you're likely going to end up buying an Apple iPad. The devices are sleek and powerful and come packed with features, though one major drawback is that they're quite pricey. If you don't mind a few imperfections, a refurbished model can be a great way to save some dough. Right now Woot has various refurbished iPad models on sale with prices starting as low as $125. You can take advantage of these deals now through through April 1, though Woot typically has a limited supply in stock, so there's a good chance some models will sell out before then.
The most affordable tablet in the sale is Apple's fifth-gen iPad at $125. By today's standards, its A8 chip isn't particularly powerful, but it is still capable of running the latest iPadOS 16 software and could serve you as a tablet for web browsing or streaming content, or as a cheap tablet for a kid. Sticking under $200, you could go for the subsequent, sixth-gen iPad from $145, or nab the 9.7-inch iPad Pro which offers a slightly more powerful A9X chip and improved camera hardware for $155 in this sale.
If you've got a little more room in your budget, you can snag a few more advanced models from as recent as 2020. Prices start at $230 for the eighth-gen iPad, which features a 10.2-inch Retina display and an A12 Bionic processor. Or you can get the fourth-gen 2020 iPad Air, which has a stunning 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, an A14 Bionic chip and 64GB of storage for $400.
Keep in mind that the iPads included in this sale have been rated as "scratch and dent"-grade refurbs, which means the devices may show signs of regular wear and tear, but have been tested and ensured to be in full working condition. Plus, your purchase also comes with a 90-day Woot limited warranty, just in case. You can shop the entire sale selection of refurbished iPads right now at Woot.
