    terrific deal, I just purchased a 9.7 pro from the apple store for education, unopened. I am certainly tempted, however given that I am rather mobile I am just not sure if the larger "pro" will work for me...

    This is my only holdup. Such a good deal, but is it easy to carry around? It's basically Macbook-sized. Not huge, but not iPad-level mobile, either... Decisions, decisions..

    An amazing deal! I hope all who can take advantage of this killer deal (and are in the market for a 12.9 iPP) do so, and not succumb to "paralysis by analysis" or a "malignant rumor" of a major update to the 12.9 Pro hardware later this year.

    I have to ask; even at the risk of flaming....
    IF the pro is so good, why all the fire sales. Apple doesn't do fires sales...

    Right, well the coupon I got was for $100 off any ipad Pro (or Mac). I'm in the UK but on holiday in Chicago next week - I've printed the coupon off and will give it a go instore but I'd be amazed it works.
    (The model I'm really after is the 9.7 - I'd settle for $100 off with the coupon, the 9.7 aren't discounted as you're aware)

    That is an outdated view of how Apple operates. They have been having regular sales on iPads and Macbook Airs for the last 2 years (at the very least). It didn't start with the iPad Pro. There's no official statement, but the evidence seems to indicate that Apple has taken a more traditional approach to pricing that includes regular temporary sales. Yes, in the past, Apple held tight control over pricing. That is not longer the case and is not necessarily an indication that a product is not selling well.

    There is a psychological effect to sales that convince people that they are getting a bargain. This effect is magnified with Apple products because people are still stuck in the "Apple doesn't do fire sales" mindset.

    When I attempted to get Apple to price match a few weeks ago, they said they can only match up to 10% of the total device cost. (I ended up buying directly from Best Buy instead)

    Thank you SO much for the heads up about this sale yesterday Hal 9000! Because of your post about the sale AND the education discount I finally purchased the 12.9 Pro yesterday, after months of waiting for a sale to justify it. I called Apple first thing Friday morning to see if they'd price match but they would not "go that low", without even mentioning the education discount. So they wouldn't match the $649 price point leaving me no choice but to purchase it from Best Buy. I bought the Apple Pencil and Smart Cover as well, all for much less than the standard price of just the 32gb model. So thank you again for the info. The sale is over now and I could have easily missed it if it wasn't for your post.

    Thanks for mentioning this sale. If I had use for the 12.9" iPP now beyond a consumption device I would have reconsidered.

    But it only ever seems to be on the iPads and watches.
    You never see fire sales on the laptops...

    Best Buy regularly sells Macbook Airs at a significant price reduction as well. I bought my 11" 4GB/128GB 2014 MBA in June '14... Best Buy was selling it for $650, with additional incentives, I got mine for $450 out the door.

    Thanks for the post! I managed to snag an open box 32 gb for $490 last night. The price was the only reason I got it. I'm debating on getting rid of my first gen retina Macbook that I also managed to get a good Best Buy deal on (~$820) but having both is nice.

    Same reason the Apple Watch, MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and iMac are always on sale. These sales are from Bestbuy not Apple.

    Definitely check out bestbuy if you haven't in the past for deals.

    That's great.

    and currently they have the 1st Macbook 256gb and 512gb models are $300 off too. As a student, I think it's about time I consider Best Buy's deals.
