    If you have a Microcenter nearby, the 11” Pro 64GB is $649. I think it’s absolutely worth the $150 extra for a significantly faster device, with a better keyboard attachment/detachment/key size.

    Or stick with the older model until prices decrease further... because they will

    Microcenter had 10.5 pro for $499 on many occasions before. I even grabbed the deal a month or so ago.

    Please buy! We need the revenue!

    Oh -I mean- trade wars, exchange rates, and other bad buzz words.

    I don’t think they will. Anything is possible, I suppose.

    Got the 10.5 in 2017 during the holidays at $499 from Target. Hard to say this is a deal today, would probably consider the 11" at $649 if I was debating between the two

    Not sure why you'd think that. They always decrease. They always have. Especially at Microcenter.

    Most of the US population does not have a Microcenter nearby. I’m not sure why their offers are for pickup only considering we live in an “online” world.

    The open box 512gb model at Best Buy for $594.99 is a steal. I got once last month for the same price.

    The 10.5 Pro will probably be discontinued once this year’s iPad comes out. The regular iPad will likely have a minimum of an A11 chip. When the 2017 iPad came out, the 9.7 Pro was discontinued (even though the A9X chip is better than the 2017’s A9 chip), I believe. But still a good deal.

    I love my 10.5 picked it up back in November as I couldn’t afford the new one. Great device and it’s faster then my MacBook Pro. At the speeds it runs at, I don’t know what else the 11 can do that the 10.5 can’t... other then the form factor. It’s a great buy. Very happy with mine.

    Sorry Apple, not buying iPad Pro 11”, because it feels like toy made of plastic - sticking with my 2017 512GiG LTE 10.5” Pro

    Got a 10.5 last night couldn’t justify and extra $250 for an 11. Pretty sure the 10.5 will serve me well! Plus it looks larger and I like that - even tho it is not lol!

    Still could not match the deal of $639 (legally no sales tax on top of that price) for the 256GB I got from AAFES in October 2017!
    Less than 4 months after launch!

    this deal has been around on and off since late 2017 for the 10.5, so its not much of a deal for something going on two years old...

    Is buying a 10.5 wise at this point? It was a one-off screen size/resolution, which means that going forward, won’t it have to start using either enlarged 9.7” apps or shrunken 11” apps with either black bars or a deformed image? I think I heard apps are technically supposed to auto-optimize to any size and resolution, but in reality is that usually the case?

    The 11" gets better benchmark scores, but I don't know of an app that makes use of the extra grunt. Perhaps some of the video editing apps? The unfortunate thing about the new iPads is that they are horribly under-utilized by iOS and currently available apps.

    Excellent point.

    And at the prices Apple is asking, I can’t get motivated. I can’t even get motivated at this price.

    Thanks for the heads up on the MicroCenter deal. Yeah, $650 for the new 11” Pro is quite a good price. You get a lot more for you’re money with that $650 then you do on the next $200 to buy the folio-keyboard. (Which is an easy pass for me, thankfully.)

    I don’t know how Microcenter has managed to stay alive in retail. There’s one near my house and I love going there. It has a mom and pop feel to it, but it’s also as big as a Best Buy (though at least twice as de army packed). I see so many fellow nerds excitedly into their own things. People drive from other states, actually, to come to Microcenter. The service is really good and I suspect quite a few people like myself are happy to spend a few bucks more on occasion in order to help keep a great computer and electronics retail shop around.

    It’s odd how that’s almost entirely gone away. Maybe not odd, but a little disappointing—especially for people who like getting to size up options in person and try things out. It’s amazing how different things can look in person than when you’re relying entirely on small pictures from websites like B&H, etc.

    A bot off-topic: Does anyone know what App this is, with the colored dots all over the screen?
