Whether you own an iPad already, are about to scoop up one of next month’s new releases, or are taking advantage of impressive price drops on older generations, an Apple Pencil is a game-changing accessory, and as of April 29, two of them are on sale.

At Amazon and Best Buy, you’ll find the second generation Apple Pencil available for $79 instead of its usual $129 (saving you $50), while at just the former retailer, you’ll find the USB-C Apple Pencil priced at $69 instead of its $79 MSRP. For both styluses, this marks a return to their lowest prices ever.

For most people, we’d recommend the second-generation Apple Pencil, as it’s sale price puts it just $10 above the less-feature heavy USB-C Apple Pencil. The magnetic stylus charges while attached to your tablet and offers excellent pressure sensitivity that makes taking notes and drawing as easy as possible on a tablet. Artists and designers will especially appreciate the precision and ease of this pencil.

However, if you’re looking to spend the least amount of money possible, the USB-C Apple Pencil is worth considering. When the stylus came onto the market, it brought some much needed upgrades from the first-generation Apple Pencil. For starters, its compatibility overlaps with much of the second gen Apple Pencil — you can use this stylus with the iPad Air, Pro, mini, as well as the 10th generation iPad (which does not support the second gen pencil).

Unlike the first Apple Pencil, it can magnetically attach to your tablet, though it doesn’t support wireless charging like it’s more expensive counterpart. With that said, it at least offers USB-C charging (though weirdly, our reviewer found that the stylus didn’t come with a charging cable). You may not get extra-fancy features like the Double Tap support you’ll find on the second-gen Apple Pencil, but you’ll still get a stylus with low latency and great battery life, and that’s more than good enough for taking notes.
