Amazon is offering the new 32GB Wi-Fi 10.2-inch iPad for $299.00, down from $329.00 in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. This is a match of Walmart's ongoing offer on the same iPad model, which was introduced on the day the tablet launched last Friday.

It's a great deal for sure. I paid $309 at Apple and I'll earn 3% back from the Apple Card and 12-month 0% financing, which works for my budget. I received mine yesterday and after using the iPad mini 4 for the past several years, I'm thrilled to have the larger screen and the performance so far is great -- I had the original iPad, but went with the Mini thereafter. I have a pencil arriving on Saturday.

The 32Gb version is a ripoff but that's Apple known to squeeze the consumers to make them pay more for the higher storage capacity versions.
64Gb should be standard.
Let's hope the new 128GB WiFi iPad is on sale on Black Friday at a lower price.

Great device, but Apple needs to seriously up its game with the storage. It's getting ridiculous. I understand the company is ran by an accountant, but come on... consumer costs for fast SSD storage are getting to be bargain basement low. Apple certainly pays a fraction of that cost. Just include a decent amount of storage already.

I am starting realize there is a trend of just waiting on discounts for a new Apple product. With the iPhone 12, if doesn’t sell well, expect a tonne load of deals; especially on the cheaper iPhone 12 models from carriers and retailers.

32GB has its place. I personally use my 6th gen as a reader, couch browser, travel streamer, (+ pencil) for grading papers in a few classes I teach, and for Sidecar with my MBP when I don't want to work at my desk or am traveling. Still have about 1/3 of my storage free–and that's with a bunch of stuff downloaded for offline viewing.

If you need more storage, buy one with more storage. But if it's a secondary device and you don't need to load it up, it's a great price for a great device.

Why is there even a 32GB iPad in 2020?
It should be a minimum of 64 or 128GB.
Lame, just lame.

It is lame.
64Gb should be the standard.
People shouldn't have to pay for anything else like iCloud when all they want is some extra storage.
Just don't mentioned anything negative about Apple or you'll get downvoted like in my previous comment.

32 GB should be enough if you don't take lots of pics and videos, and also keep many videos on there for offline viewing. Otherwise, $430 will get you 128 GB. Surprised there aren't higher storage tiers :\

All this whining about storage is comical. Most people never bump up against even a 32GB capacity unless they are storing bloated apps, movies or music. Something almost no one under 35 does in 2020.

I'm 50. A 32GB iPad doesn't give you 32GB of data storage...you probably are left with 25GB at the most when you first unbox and power on your iPad. Throw on a few 3GB movies, take some pix, set up email and iMessage, store 10GB of music and yes, you are quickly maxed out.

I have tried iCloud this month and find it very finicky. It does not store the 100% full quality pix as I request it to. I have no idea what it does to the iPhone 7Plus video quality I store on iCloud. Not to mention, iCoud is not free.

32GB is an insult. Anyone who gives Apple their hard-earned money for a 32GB iPad is an idiot. Now if it was $150, that might be different. But still, 32GB?

This is the budget/entry-level iPad. I expect Apple figured customers who are willing to pay $$$ for higher than 128GB storage would be willing to pony extra for higher end models as well.

Perfect kid's iPad. I would never consider the 128GB iteration unless I had a need for lots of offline video storage (like a modern portable DVD player)... once you start souping up entry-level models, it makes more sense to go for a mid-level trim... the car world is the same way.
