May isn’t typically a sales month for tablet computers, and now with components shortages because of government policies in combination with a continued high demand, there are even fewer reasons for stores to have a sale right now.
But there are still a few tablet deals to be had now in the middle of May, mostly on particular editions of a tablet or in some cases on outgoing models, such as the iPad Pros.
Surface Pro 7 is now up to $380 off, with the entry level model starting at $590. I think the best deal may be on the 8GB/256GB Intel Core i5 model that’s off by over $300, despite being the bestselling version.
The Surface Go 2 is also on sale, and the best tablet deal is on the 8GB/128GB Pentium Gold model that’s $38 off.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 tablets have a more or less permanent price cut, which begins with a $70 price cut.
Now that Apple is launching the new iPad Pros as we speak, the predecessors are in a clear out sale, where the price cuts range between $100 to $200. If that’s still too expensive, then the powerful iPad Air is a very good alternative, and it’s another tablet that enjoys a more or less permanent price cut too.
And finally, there’s the SQ2 version of the Surface Pro X 4G, where the 16GB/256GB model is $300 off.
These are the main tablet deals so far in May, but we’ll add new ones to the top of the list if any new worthwhile sales appear.
