    so with the student discount of 100, I was able to get a open box iPad Pro 32gb for 415. It was marked at 563 open box, but had a scratch on the apple logo, so they brought it down to 515. Pretty amazing deal. I'm going from my 64gb iPad Air 2 so it's a nice upgrade. Im a little nervous about the space though. For those that have it, what do you reccomend? Also I got the pencil, but not the keyboard. Do you reffonend I get that as well? Thanks!

    Lucky you. I've tried the student discount on open box before and sometimes it does not work.

    Don't know why you would go from 64GB to a 32GB device, I'll gladly take less of a deal for the convenience of the extra space

    Spending a extra 200 bucks for the extra space just wasn't in the budget. I have a 128 gb iPhone so I'll keep all my music and photos on that. Will be limited With space but I'll make do. After selling my old iPad I only had to pay 100 out of pocket. Plus the cost of a penci any case makes it 250 out of pocket. Other one would be 450 and I can't justify that

    32GB is plenty for me. I have a 64GB iPhone SE and had so much extra storage that I decided to download every season of GoT just because. I don't even plan on watching them on my phone. I would gladly chosen 32GB if that was an option to save some money.

    Same here. I have the 64GB iPhone and don't even touch half of that. I've usually gone with 16GB on iPads.

    I have cellular iPads and a line with unlimited data on AT&T, so I just put the SIM card in the iPad I plan on taking out with me. I use Google Photos, Play Music, and Hangouts, so I don't store pictures, music, or texts (which add up to several GB with all the pictures I send/receive since I never delete texts) and it's easy to get by with only 16GB. But without unlimited data, I'd need 32GB but not really more.

    Enjoy your ipad! Definitely recommend you to get the apple smart keyboard to use it in school.
