    Hey guys,

    I saw on Slickdeals that eBay was having a 20% off coupon (up to a maximum of $100 off your purchase) today and thought I would look around if there were any deals on iPad Pro's.

    I saw a brand new / sealed 10.5" for $479 ($579 - 20% off coupon) and pulled the trigger. It's shipping from outside of my state as well so I save on $50 or so I would have had to pay in sales tax... basically the same as if I bought it for $429 and had to pay sales tax on it.

    Good deal? Or would you hold off knowing theres a refresh sometime Juneish?

    Thanks for your input :)

    I paid $484 before tax and I am happy. I could wait for something newer and pay full price but the price made it worthwhile for me.

    64 is fine if it’s mainly used in areas with WiFi.

    I got a 64GB at Best Buy for $549. Use it for media (stream) and photo editing. Hardly any music. Have 6,000 photos and 100 or so apps. 20GB left. Works for me.

    I don’t even use the 32gb on my current iPad so 64 works for me. I no longer keep a lot of movies on my iPads.

    64GB is way more than enough. I'm not even using half of mine.

    Grabbed a 64gb yesterday for $351 out the door. Hoping it was a good purchase, price seemed too good to pass up for a 10.5. Now need to figure out what to do with my iPad mini 3.

    I thought 32GB was plenty for me until the last two iOS updates. Then I was picking and choosing what apps and movies to have on it. idk why Apple keeps selling the 32GB. 64GB might be in the same scenario down the road. Lets hope not. $350 for an iPad pro is nice. Even if you get the Pencil and AppleCare, you will be under the price of the base model.

    Thanks for the replies so far :)

    64gb will be more than enough. I don't think I'll be able to use even half of that if I tried.

    $438 x 9.5% sales tax = $479. Since this sealed iPad Pro was tax free at $479... I figured it'd the same as if I was buying it brand new from Best Buy for $438 (an awesome deal of $211 off the normal MSRP of $649) plus sales tax.

    That’s a great deal the OP got. I bought my 10.5” IPP around Christmas for $499, and I thought that was a great deal. And 64GB is way more than enough storage for me.

    $480 is even better.

    Great deal, I paid full price. 64GB is plenty. Love my 10.5, best computer I've owned.
