    Best Buy has the iPad Pro on sale for $100 off and I can apply a college discount of another $100 dropping the 32GB to $400 new.

    I have an Air, and I definitely feel the performance lacking. Is this worth dropping $400?
    Also do you guys think it's worth going for the 128GB model? That would make it $550..

    I did this exactly late last night and picked it up today I love it! The 2gb ram and processer is a huge upgrade from the air 1 :) I did the 128 gb but other then that it was worth it!

    The jump from $400 -> $550 doesn't seem worth it to me.

    It's all based on storage needs I like having the peace of mind of I won't fill it up in 2-3 years. If you use not as much you can choose the lower storage option.

    How do you get the extra $100 college discount? Do they send you a coupon when you sign up through the student link?

    This pretty much. Personally, I've only got around 50GB free on my 256GB iPP. I've got a 16TB server at home so I could easily fill up the iPad if I wanted to. That's not the goal though. I got 256GB so I can store a good-sized collection of favorite comics and videos to keep me entertained for maybe a week or so offline (and a laptop+portable 4TB HDDs for longer trips) and so I don't have to keep micromanaging content on the iPad.

    If you're fine accessing/streaming everything from the internet, then a 32GB iPP should be fine.

    I didn't have to provide an email all I did was select the school I go to. Granted it was a community college.

    If all you plan to do use it for is steaming, social media, and a few games, 32gb is fine. If you are planning to use storage for music, movies, and taking 4k video, I highly recommend getting the 128gb.

    I see this quoted a lot, but it's not the case. I didn't use a .edu email address when I signed up and got the discounts and there is no reference (that I could find) on Best Buy's site about the equirement to have an.edu address in Oder to receive the discounts.

    I got mine for $600 and feel it was absolutely worth it. Really great tablet with fantastic performance.
