Amazon's largest tablet is half-off this weekend. The touchscreen is 10.1 inches and is full 1080p high definition. Battery life should be good enough to get you around 12 hours of use, or enough to get through a full day of use. 

  • Current price: $600
  • Original price: $930

You can save $330 on Microsoft's 12.3-inch Surface Pro 7+ tablet. This large tablet can replace your laptop entirely since it has a built-in kickstand with a detachable keyboard. You can expect 8GB of memory, a battery life of up to 15 hours, an

Intel 11th Generation Core i3 processor, and, of course, Windows 11.

Wacom's One tablet is currently 38% off on Amazon. This tablet is perfect for creatives, because it lets you sketch, paint, draw, and edit photos or videos with ease. Its paper-like surface and ergonomic pen make the drawing experience on this tablet unlike others on the market. Plus, it comes with a suite of creative and educative apps built right in. 

  • Current price: $549
  • Original price: $599

Apple's newest iPad Air is currently on sale for $50 off ahead of Cyber Monday. This iPad model was only just released in March, and has only reached this price point one time during Amazon's October Prime Day. All five iPad colors are on sale on Amazon right now, and you can expect a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with True Tone as well as Apple's M1 chip with Neural Engine. 

  • Current price: $700
  • Original price: $1,300

On the other hand, you can get the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 with an included Surface Pen and a black surface type cover for $100 more than the pre-mentioned model. Many of the features are still the same, except this model runs on an Intel Core i5 processor and has Windows 10 instead of the latest Windows 11. But we think the included pen and keyboard make the price worth it.  

  • Current price: $399
  • Original price: $599

This tablet is made specifically for seniors, and it's currently 33% off at Amazon. It has a simple interface optimized for individuals with accessibility challenges in vision and hearing. It has built-in 4G LTE so it's always connected, and the icons are bright and easy to interpret to get to different apps and features.

It also comes with a durable case and a stylus pen to make it even easier to use.
