When I reviewed the latest iPad Pro last year, I marveled at its laptop-trouncing specs, but I knew plenty of people wouldn’t want to stomach its laptop-like prices. Today’s deal at Amazon finally brings the price down to something reasonable and manageable. You can get the 64GB 12.9-inch model with both Wi-Fi and cellular for just $900, which is way down from the $1,149 it sold for at launch. That’s a discount of $249, and it’s the best price we’ve seen for this model by almost $50.
And no lie—it’s a fantastic price. My one bit of caution, though, is that 64GB isn’t a lot of space to work with for a “Pro” machine. If you plan on loading up this rig with videos, games, and apps like Adobe Lightroom (or the expected but still-missing Adobe Photoshop), it’s going to fill up fast. On the other hand, I work with the outrageously roomy 1TB model, and I’ve never come close to filling that thing. Consider how you’ll use it and then work from there.
