If you have some upcoming travel planned, today's dealmaster can save you a nice chunk of change on some trusty travel companions. Bose's super-comfortable QuietComfort 45 noise-cancelling headphones are currently on sale for $280 ($330), while Apple's two most widely recommendable iPads, the iPad Air (10.9-inch, 64GB) and iPad Mini (8.3-inch, 64GB), are on sale for $500 ($560) and $300 ($400), respectively. Both iPad deals match the lowest prices we've tracked for these models. Do note that you'll receive the discount at checkout on Amazon's iPad Air deal.

Apple iPad Air, 10.9-inch 64GB for $500 ($560)

Apple's iPads are the best tablets you can buy, and the latest iPad Air is the best for most people. In our review, we noted that, in addition to the beautiful screen for media consumption, the M1 processor also gives it more power than it has any business having if you need to do a little bit of work. It's also a well-equipped device for video calls, utilizing a 12 MP front-facing camera with Apple's Center Stage technology to digitally assist in keeping you the main focus on video. Pair this with Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard compatibility, and it becomes harder to justify spending hundreds more on an iPad Pro.

Apple iPad Mini, 8.3-inch 64GB for $300 ($400)

The iPad Mini fills a similar role at its price point, and with $100 off the typical price, that value only deepens. It uses USB-C to charge, supports the latest Apple Pencil, and has Touch ID built into the power button. It doesn't have a matching Magic Keyboard, but you can always pair it with a Bluetooth keyboard. As we note in our review, it does well to emulate a mini version of the latest iPads and their newest features. Just note that an 8.3-inch screen can be a bit cramped for multitasking or hours of work. Otherwise it's a great device for consuming media, sketching, or jotting down notes.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
