Apple last week launched the new iPad Pro and MacBook Air, and shortly after Expercom provided the first discount on these devices. Today, Amazon has introduced the second set of markdowns on a few of these new 2020 Apple products.

For the iPad Pro, you'll find prices starting at $749.99 for the 128GB Wi-Fi model of the 11-inch iPad Pro, while the same version of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is at $949.99, both representing $49 discounts. As of writing, the only 2020 MacBook Air on sale on Amazon is the 256GB model at $949.99, another $49 discount from Apple's price.

These products are available for pre-order on Amazon, and the company states that the iPad Pros will begin shipping tomorrow, March 25.

It would be even more interesting if they offered deals on something besides the absolute base model.

It’s so frustrating that the SSD and Ram can’t be upgraded. It would make it so much more fun to be able to shop for basically any model, in the processor range you want, and spec it up as needed or wanted over time.

Amazon is matching the prices of Costco! If you are a Costco member, get it through them. Costco gives you extra warranty plus AppleCare+ is cheaper on Costco.
Plus longer return policy just in case you're not happy with subpar upgrade.

Since an iPad is non-essential, I wonder if delivery dates will be well into April like other non-essential PRIME deliveries?

Meh. Can get $100 off MacBook Air via education store. Most parents can claim “home School” since all k-12 basically closed down for the year. And obviously college students and other students can get discounts as well.

ipad Pro 2020 like people have stated. The a12z professor is minor upgrade. Same raw geek bench score as late 2018 iPad pro Sure it has extra 2gb ram.

But it smells like iPad 3 (April 2012) I fell for with the a5x processor and “double the ram” To 1gb (from 512mb in iPad 2 A5 pocessor) And they released iPad 4 with A6X processor 6 months later.

I hate that “non essential” bs. Everything has been pushed back one month.

Why is the discount only for the silver??? Oh well. I got mine through apples student store.

Amazon is matching the prices of Costco! If you are a Costco member, get it through them. Costco gives you extra warranty plus AppleCare+ is cheaper on Costco. And 90 days return policy.

I would encourage people to buy from Costco even if Costco didn't offer those extra benefits. Does Bezo need anymore of our money?
