Take $99 off the price of the Wi-Fi only Apple iPad Pro by making your purchase from eBay
In the market for an Apple iPad Pro? The 12.9-inch tablet is designed to make you more productive thanks in part to the powerful A9X SoC under the hood. 4GB of RAM is inside, and the 10,307mAh battery keeps you going for hours. Other accessories, like the Apple Pencil, and the Smart Keyboard, allow you to get things done wherever you are.

While we wouldn't say that the price of being productive is low, we can direct you to a sale that will allow you to save $99.01 off the price of the 32GB or 128GB Apple iPad Pro. This is the Wi-Fi only model, available in Space Grey, Gold, and Silver. Thanks to a partnership between online auctioneer eBay and Electronics Valley, the 32GB iPad Pro in the aforementioned colors is priced at $699.99. The 128GB version is priced at $849.99.

One thing that we need to bring to your attention. While Electronics Valley does have a long history of selling new Apple devices sealed in the box, it is not an authorized Apple reseller. If that doesn't matter to you, and you'd like to save 12% on your iPad Pro purchase, click on the sourcelink. By the way, purchasing the device from Electronics Valley does not void the warranty.

I have one. In fact I am willing to bet it's way better than yours. Because see I don't work for anyone. I am my own company along with my partners.

I considered the following products to be to expensive for what they offer:

iPad Pro
Galaxy Note pro 12.2 (Which I did buy and kept for 6 months and sold it as I rarely used it) oh and I paid MORE for it than the iPad Pro.
All Macs
All Samsung ATIV laptops
HP Envy laptops though I have bought 2 of them
All Beats headphones
All iPhone/iPod Touch
All Samsung Edge phones (Though I bought both the Edge and Edge+)
All Apple Watches
All Samsung Watches (Though I did buy the original Gear, the Gear S and Gear S2)

Now just because I bought many of those items, I still found them to be expensive. Some are closer to being worth the cost vs other.

Example...iPad Pro vs the Note Pro 12.2. Similar in size, the iPad has a better resolution, but the Note actually comes with real tablet applications thanks to Samsung and Microsoft and it comes with a pen. Also I got the 4G verizon model which si also 32GB like the iPad Pro, but it support USB 3.0 and SDCARDS, whcih the iPad doesn't.

Example II - Comparing the Gear pricing vs Apple Watch. The original Gear was an accessory to the Note 3, just as the Apple Watch is to the iPhone. But the gear was only 299.99 vs 349.99. It has a camera as well. But it sucked an had no other good features. But that was a first gen product. Now yes the Apple Watch was also first gen, but it was 2 years after the original Gear. Since then Samsung has release 2 Gear S models, both with WiFi, 3G, UV, Heart rate, BT and more. Price? $249.99 for WiFi only and up to $360 for a GSM variant. Both are 99% standalone. You only need your phone to move media or apps to it directly. The device own functions are all standalone. Apple Watch? Has no standalone features because the watch wont even work until you use your phone to set it up.

For me to expensive doesn't mean the price is affordable by me. It means that its feature-set or functions do not make its price feasible.

Last year I can bet with my life, my incomes was at least 10 times what you took home for a full year last year.

You wanna debate that?

My email address on Gmail is equal to my screen name.
Come and let me embarrass you bruh!

Don't try to tell me wjhat I can and can't afford. In fact, the amount of money on my AMERICAN EXPRESS BLUE card is at least double your income. which means I can take my AMEX and buy over 100+ iPad Pro's with no problem and still have money left over!

You fans are such fools trying to tell someone what they can;'t afford simply because we feel a price is to high. It doesn't mean we can't afford it fool. Because if that were true, the iPhone wouldnt even sell as much as it does. After all, its mostly poor peopel who won them idiot. Considering this fact fool...350M people in the USA alone and less than 2% of them are considered rich. That means those 2% of Americans

...wouldn't provide enough sales to keep Apple in business.
Yet Appel has most of its sales in the USA. In fact its USA sales are nearly double more than its world sales. YOU ARE A FOOL!

It's poor people who make corps rich because rich people only buy expensive things.

Rich people keep brands like Ferrari and Rolex in business. can you afford a Rolex? I bet you can, but it would take 1/4th of your income to get one.

I can walk out my door and use my AMEX and buy 10+ of them at $10,000 each and still have more on my AMEX, or I can go and pull enough cash out the bank and buy enough of them so I dont have to wear the same one more than once for a full year.

Want proof? Just email me.

I bet I will shut your @$$ up.

As an owner of a AT&T Galaxy Pro 12.2, I will agree with you for the most part of function. As for cost, not sure about yours but mine was $899.

When it comes to function of tablet like applications, Android does have it wins for that.

However, Microsoft on both Android and iOS are the same. I use them ALOT for work versus pulling out my laptop.

I love the screen size of the Galaxy Pro 12.2, however as you mentioned it lacks in Screen resolution. Just last week walked into a Best Buy and looked at the Galaxy View, MAN IS THAT HUGE!!! I was disappointed in the screen resolution. I dont need my icons that large.

To me where iOS wins is one app works for both a iPhone and iPad. I travel alot for work and Android still has many apps that do not work in landscape mode on a tablet. It drives me up a wall. I fly Delta and love the iPad app over Android.

Not without a doubt the ability to connect USB hardrive to a for larges amount of space is amazing. Works nice for videos.

Nonsense.
This free app (and many others) on Google play can turn any app and screen to landscape mode.

They arent the same. A Surface at $799 will do more than an iPad at $799...at least the Surface comes with a pen, doesn't have to be charged in a stupid way either. I can split more than 2 windows, I have more RAM, more storage, more useful apps and games and lits lighter, thinner and more useful.

Any Intel chip will runs circles around an ARM based one.

I would never compare an iPad or any ARM based tablet to a Surface. The Surface is not a tablet, it is a full Windows PC that uses a similar form factor

Its liek what a station wagon is to an SUV. A station wagon was replaced with a crossover SUV. But a Crossover SUV can't do what a full SUV can even having similar features like 4WD.

In other words, a car that looks like a truck; isn't a truck.
You're trying to compare a car to a truck and that makes you an idiot.

It's not thinner. I use an iPad pro for school, at most tasks it's fine. It's prints off word documents with ease and I found prezi was the best for slideshows. the screen is nice and I think the size is perfect.
The iPad pro is for casual workers like me.
If I wanted it only for school id get a surface. But I also use the iPad for entertainment purposes. It's got a bigger better display, it's thinner and has better speakers than the surface pro.
Of course, your needs are different to mine. But your yelling out comments like your the center of the world.
Heck you'll need massive amount of storage to write your essays.

The problem with the iPad Pro is 100% equal to that of the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2.
The size isn't the issue, its the features for the price.

A tablet to be is no more portable than a nice light laptop.

ARM hardware is simply to lomited.

The iPad pro only nice feature is the display. The Note Pro 12.2 is roughly the same size, but with a 2560x1600 resolution which is fine. It comes 32/64 and has sdcard slot and supports USB 3.0 out the box. The iPad only supports USB 2.0 which means the Galaxy will have faster transfers.

Consider also that both devices with Microsoft office will work nearly identical.
But the Note pro comes with an office suite already, includes a pen with tips and more benefits. Not only does it offer split screen, you can split up to 4 apps plus the S-Pen apps and play a video on top of that too.

Even though the Note Pro is roughly a year older, it comes out the box with more features and similar pricing.

But considering you can get a Surface Pro 3 at $699 at 10" and 799 for 12" both with 1080p and Windows which is a much better OS than Android and iOS combined because I can run real desktop apps and not stripped down garbage apps, and I can play better games too; the price of the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and the iPad Pro are simply not worth it.

The featuresets justify a price not about $599, I don't care what size it is. Size does not offer any benefit of the Note Pro over the Note 10.1 as well as the iPad Pro at 12" offers no Benefit over the 9.7" iPad Air.

They are the exact same devices, with the exact same features as their smaller siblings and a $200 price tag for absolutely nothing.

I sold my Note Pro and swore that I would never buy an ARM based tablet again from any brand. They are too limited, too expensive and have no good features for their cost.

Also since I have the Galaxy Note already, the tablet actually offered nothign above the phone other than size, which si exactly what the iPad offers to any iPhone. Its the same sh1t only bigger.

But idiots like NCTX77 think I can't afford it. REALLY?

Look up my users name on ebay "livenlife4me" and see some of the stuff i have sold and tell me I can't afford an iPad pro...ignorant @$$ fanboy.
