It might not have all the bells and whistles of the iPad Air, but it’s a solid, budget-friendly tablet that’ll likely be able to handle anything you throw at it. Elsewhere online, you can pick up the Chromecast with Google TV for only $40 and the Beats Studio Buds for $100. Here are this week’s best tech deals you can still get today.
