Nine months have passed since the introduction of the newest range of Apple iPad Pro tablets, and Best Buy runs a limited-time sale in which you can save on the 10.5 model as much as during Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2017.
Several versions of iPad Pro 10.5 are discounted on Best Buy, including the ones without and with cellular contract.
You can save $50 on the most affordable version, the one with Wi-Fi connection and 64 GB of internal memory (please remember that iPads don’t have microSD slot, so you won’t be able to extend the memory with a card). The Space Gray version costs now $599.99 instead of
$649.99, so your saving is even bigger than during Black Friday when this version was available for above $600 after the price cut. The prices of Rose Gold and Silver versions are cut to $599.99 as well.
The variants with the cellular connection but without the contract are not currently on sale. However, if you are hunting for the iPad that would connect with the world no matter where you are, you can always buy it with a two-year contract.
For instance, you can save $200 on iPad Pro 10.5 with 256 GB and Verizon contract. The price is set at $729.99, so it’s a 21% price difference compared to the relevant version without the contract (
Other versions you can get for a reduced price are:
- iPad Pro 10.5, Wi-Fi, 256 GB, in Space Gray – $699.99
- iPad Pro 10.5, Wi-Fi, 512 GB, in Space Gray – $899.99
- iPad Pro 10.5, Wi-Fi + Cellular, 512 GB, in Silver, with 2-year Verizon contract – $929.99
Is it worth to buy the iPad Pro 10.5 instead of the 9.7-inch model? iPad Pro is packed with more advanced technology but has the same weight as the iPad 9.7. It’s also considerably thinner (6.1 vs. 7.5 mm). It offers a powerful Retina display with ProMotion. The display resolution is 2224 × 1668 px; pixel density is 264 ppi. The tablet is powered by A10X Fusion chip + M10 coprocessor. It comes with 7 MP front and 12 MP back camera.
Most importantly, it is ready for Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, so that you can use it to the fullest. Apple Pencil integration includes inline drawing in Notes or Mail, a convenient signing of documents, or instant drawing from a Lock Screen, among others.
Is it the right time to buy the iPad Pro 2017? By Black Friday 2018 it may not be “the latest-generation” model any longer, although its price will drop even more.
And if you decide to buy the iPad Pro, make sure to give it proper protection or amplify style or both, check out these awesome iPad Pro cases and sleeves.
