Walmart offers the previous-generation 9.7-inch iPad Wi-Fi 128GB in Silver or Gold for $349 shipped. Originally $429, this is a great deal to get a higher-storage option iPad and is right in line with what we normally see them drop to. We have seen it drop down to around $329, but only in limited cases. Do note that this is the previous generation without Apple Pencil support.

In recent years vinyl has enjoyed an impressive resurgence as it found a home in our mostly digital world. The so-called “vinyl resurgence” started in 2007, slowly seeing sales increase over the next 10-years to levels not seen since the 1980s or earlier. If you’re anything like me, it’s easy to depend on Apple Music with an entire library at your fingertips. But vinyl offers a different experience, as there is just something about placing a record on to a turntable that Apple and Spotify simply can’t match.

Last year I dove into the world of vinyl strictly out of curiosity. In the meantime, I’ve enjoyed building a small collection and learning some of the nuances of this hobby. If you’re at all interested, check out the short guide below to learn how you can construct your own vinyl library from the beginning.
