Black Friday sales are officially in in full swing, especially from retail giants like Best Buy. The massive shopping event has always been a great opportunity to snag deals on electronics from top brands, and this year is no different. Best Buy, for instance, has discounted some of the best tablets on the market, including the latest Apple iPad and Microsoft Surface Pro, by up to $360 for Black Friday doorbusters.
A pioneer of the tablet market, the iPad has remained king of the space it has carved out between smartphones and laptop computers. But it’s not alone. Microsoft has refused to stand pat and developed the impressive Surface Pro tablets to compete with Apple. Deciding which one is right for you likely comes down to your operating system preference. If you’re already locked into to the iOS ecosystem with an iPhone, MacBook, or Apple Watch, then an iPad tablet would make the most sense for you. As for everyone else, it’s a toss-up between and iPad and Surface. Below are the best deals on iPads and Surface Pros from Best Buy, with discounts ranging from $80 to $360 off.
