Featured deal: Save 25% on the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro
It’s no secret that Apple has always been the king of tablet design, but now other manufacturers like Lenovo are starting to learn from Apple’s mastery and create their own more affordable products. Upon first glance, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro looks remarkably similar to Apple’s iPad Pro, and like Apple’s pitch for the iPad, one of Lenovo’s best hooks for this tablet is its ability to function like a laptop. Pick it up right now for only $374.99 ($125 off) at Walmart.
Apple iPads are great, but they’re also wallet-emptying and require a large investment to get the most out of them. On the other hand, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro is affordable, but also effective and flexible. This tablet packs an 11.5-inch OLED screen, 4GB of RAM memory, 128 GB of storage, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G octa-core processor.

Amazon Fire Tablet deals
Amazon’s Fire line of tablets is one of the most affordable ways to dip into the experience, with some models starting well under $100. You can choose from a few sizes — 7, 8, or 10-inches — and all of the tablets run Amazon’s own Fire OS. You won’t find the familiar Google Play Store here, but you should be able to get by with the Kindle app, Prime Video, and more.
Microsoft Surface Pro deals
If you want to seriously consider replacing your laptop with a tablet, the Microsoft Surface line is the way to go. They often drop the mobile-based chipset for a full-sized Intel Core processor. You’ll also find larger 12-inch displays on the flagship Surface Pro line. The high-end Surface Pro X even lets you tap into 4G LTE connectivity for work on the go. Take a look at the deals here:
