Back in December I started to see iPads go on sale on Amazon for $289, then $279, then $249, and eventually as low as $229. Since then I’ve watched the prices almost daily and have yet to see one priced anywhere near Apple’s MSRP of $329. The price continues to hover between $249 and $289. Right now, I’m seeing $249.
As of this morning (February 25th) you can get a new, current generation iPad for $249!
iPad Accessories I Recommend
When it comes to recording audio on an iPad these $2 lapel microphones are hard to beat for classroom use. Of course, you won’t get the sound quality of something like a Yeti mic, but at $2 a piece you can afford to outfit your whole class for less than the cost of one Yeti mic.
