The 2020 iPad Air is quite similar to the iPad Pro, and many casual tech users are unlikely to notice the differences. The size is almost identical, and the Air still features a Liquid Retina display, 4K camera capabilities, and 256GB of storage. The iPad Air only earned its mid-tier status because it isn’t quite as powerful as the Pro. If you are someone who really cares about refresh rates and smoothness while scrolling, get the iPad Pro. But there are not many features found in the iPad Pro that the iPad Air lacks, so it should still dazzle most casual users. The $50 discount on Amazon right now just makes it even more appealing.

The projector has numerous connections, including HDMI, VGA, USB, Micro SD and AV. It also features built-in speakers, and it’s remote controlled.
