Now that the Air 3 is "confirmed" to have the a9x processor, the question most people will be asking is "which iPad is the better deal?" I'm going to go ahead and say that iPad Pro will be the better deal if you can get it at its current price point from Staples or from other sales that might be occurring keeping the 128gb model at $799. Consider that the iPad Air 3 will most likely still start at 16gb and go up to 64gb, and then 128gb with prices being $499, $599, and $699 respectively. Additionally the Air 3 will most likely have 2gb of ram and a slightly slower a9x processor as to not be considered as "pro" as the IPP. So for $100 more, you can go from the Air 3 to the Pro with 2gb more ram, a faster processor, and a larger screen. The best value will absolutely be the iPad Pro if you can get it at the sale price.
