If you're in the market for a new tablet, Best Buy is running some rather remarkable deals on consumer and professional tablets from Apple. Both the standard 9.7-inch iPad and the 11-inch iPad Pro are available with a steep discount with free shipping or free in-store pickup.
First up is the 9.7-inch iPad, which normally rings in at $329 for the 32GB model. However, Best Buy is currently selling the upgraded 128GB iPad for an even lower price of $299 (available in Silver, Space Gray or Gold). The regular price for the 256GB SKU is $429, so this represents a $130 discount. Amazon is currently selling the 32GB iPad for $249, but this deal from Best Buy is a far better deal in our opinion -- especially if you're going to be installing a lot of apps or offline movies.
The iPad features an A10 Fusion SoC, 9.7-inch Retina Display (2048x1536), Touch ID, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, and a battery that's rated for 10 hours. The device will be upgradable to the new iPadOS 13 when it is released this fall.
If you need a bit more horsepower and a larger display, there's an even better deal to be had on the 11-inch iPad Pro. Best Buy is currently selling the 256GB version of the 11-inch iPad for $674.99, which is a $275 discount compared to its regular price. On top of that, you can get an additional $50 off by signing up for the education discount (you don't need an .edu address to apply). That brings the price down to an unbelievable $624.99. Considering that the lowest price we've seen the 64GB model is $649, getting the 256GB model for $624.99 is a relative steal.
The iPad Pro comes with an A12X Bionic SoC, 11-inch Retina Display (2388x1668), Face ID, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, quad speakers, USB-C connectivity (which will be further enhanced with iPadOS 13) and 10-hour battery life.
