Apple's 2017-released iPad Pro 10.5
is technically dead and buried
, but just because the powerful tablet is no longer sold directly through its manufacturer's official US e-store, it doesn't mean interested buyers are completely out of options. Best Buy, for instance, has been selling
the 10.5-incher at substantial discounts
ever since the 2019 version of the iPad Air
was unveiled, taking its savings to a whole new level today (and today only).
Depending on your preferred configuration, you can take up to a whopping $450 off the 10.5-inch iPad Pro's list price, with the cheapest model on sale available at an amazing 300 bucks less than usual. We're talking a cellular-enabled variant with 64 gigs of internal storage space fetching $479.99 instead of $779.99. To put that in context, the revived 10.5-inch iPad Air costs $499 with the same amount of digital hoarding room but no LTE connectivity. And yes, the newer slate obviously packs a newer and faster processor, but it also comes with a slightly humbler memory count, an inferior rear-facing camera, and no ProMotion display technology.
Circling back to the drastically marked-down select iPad Pro
10.5 models, we should mention the $450 discount is good with cellular support and 512GB storage, a configuration that normally fetches an exorbitant $1,130, currently setting you back a significantly more reasonable 680 bucks. Meanwhile, Wi-Fi-only 256GB versions start at $550 a pop right now after a decent $250 price reduction, although the same storage configuration is available for a measly $20 extra with built-in LTE speeds as well.
Finally, you can get a 512GB iPad Pro 10.5 without cellular connectivity starting at $680, which would certainly be a killer deal if not for the aforementioned discount on the LTE-capable 512 gig variant. That's arguably the best deal of the day, but keep in mind that you need to hurry to claim it.
