The Apple iPad 10.2 (2021) is a great choice for college students, businesses, casual users, and travelers. It’s a far more powerful tablet than previous generations, with extra features and improved specifications. It’s also very affordable at USD$329 for the Wi-Fi 64GB model. It’s my pick for this year’s best-value tablet.
