I'm on the ground scouting for decent iPad deals this Cyber Monday, and now that we're heading into the day for real, things haven't changed much. It's all about these excellent iPads below.

The first is on the 5th Gen iPad Air, down from $599.99 to $499.99 at Amazon, saving you $100. Secondly there's the iPad 10th generation, which is down from $499 to £349 at BestBuy. And then the 9th Gen classic iPad, down from $339 to $249 over at Best Buy, saving you $80.

To be honest, I'm also super into this iPad mini deal that nets you $100 off from Amazon, bringing it to $399.99. Since the mini hasn't been included in the most recent line-up, it's a bit rarer.

Why are we excited about these deals? Well, we love these tablets! As you can see from our iPad 9 review, our iPad 10 review, and our iPad Air 5 review

Want more power, a better screen for digital art and sketching, and much better speakers? The iPad Air covers you for streaming and film watching, but with its Apple Pencil 2 compatibility, there are also a lot more things you can do with it. We gave it an almost-perfect score of 4.5 stars in our review.

This is the 'entry-level' iPad, but with its A14 Bionic chip with 6-core CPU and 4-core GPU, there's nothing much 'entry' about it. This is a future-proof tablet if you use it for browsing, streaming TV and film, and mobile gaming. Oh, and it also has the call camera in the middle of the landscape side (at last!).

iPad (9th Gen): $329 $249 at Best Buy

This deal was better yesterday, and may reach its $100 discount heyday again this Cyber Monday. But for now, the best price on the 9th Gen iPad is over at Best Buy. It's a cracking iPad, but doesn't have the power of the most recent release (above).

iPad mini: $499 $399 at Amazon
Save $100: This is $20 off the lowest price we've seen. Given iPad minis aren't being produced lately, we're not sure it's always going to be easy to get one. So I'm actually quite into this deal even though it isn't the cheapest it's ever been. The mini certainly has its place, it's not the best for digital art (though handy for on the go sketching), but it's great for note-taking and streaming whilst on the move. 

Price check: $469 at Walmart

The iPad 9 is a great tablet. And as it's not the brand new model, you're going to get the lowest prices on it – such as this deal at £299. Whereas the 10th Gen has more power, and resembles an Air in design, this is the classic iPad that is great for browsing, mobile gaming, and streaming.

The latest iPad is the most powerful iPad to date. Its A14 Bionic chip, with 6-core CPU and 4-core GPU, will be perfect for all the streaming, browsing and mobile gaming you can throw at it. And it has the call camera in the middle of the landscape side (at last!). Our iPad 10th gen review raves about it – we gave it 4 stars.
