The days just ahead of the Easter holiday next week is proving to be a time of a lot of tablet deals this year. We mentioned that the time corresponds with the Gearbest 4th anniversary sales, but actually there are several other stores that are having tablet sales right now.
These includes Amazon today who’s slashing 20% off all their Fire tablets, meaning that the entry level Fire 7 starts at $39. But all the other Fire tablets are on sale today too, with the Fire HD 8 on sale for $59, and the Fire HD 10 on sale for $119. The latter tablet should be called the FHD 10 since it actually has a 1920 x 1200 resolution display, but Amazon modesty calls it the HD 10.
Another company with a large presence in Seattle is also having sales on tablets, with Microsoft taking $200 off the Intel Core i5 models of the Surface Pro.
So the Easter price for the Surface Pro is now $799 for the Intel Core i5 model with 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD storage, and $1099 for the Intel Core i5 model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD storage. In other words, the Intel Core i5 version can now be bought for the same amount as the Intel Core m3 version of this Windows 10 Pro 2-in-1 tablet.
