    Now that we can preorder the new iPads, is it good to order now right away... Or wait? I am worried if I wait, I may not be able to get one due to demand. Think that will be a problem?

    I just can’t decide which to get, I am disappointed about the prices.. Especially here in Japan where they raise it even more. Honestly, 898 starting for the 11in 64gb is crazy here....

    I hear ya..I didn't think it would be THIS much using the apple education site, and getting the apple pencil, this will cost me 1100 bucks..never imagined in my wildest dreams spending that much on an ipad, but I don't see it getting cheaper for BF so maybe will just buy it and do the financing

    I was thinking the same, I may purchase using their financing. Well, this will be my early Christmas and birthday present. Heck, at this price.. May be a 2 year Christmas present. I sure won’t be getting anything for a long time.

    Yeah the 18 months no interest is good(With their barklays visa credit card) so I might do that..I really wish this ipad pro came in rose gold no idea why they did not go that route

    It’s just a bit of tech, wait and go and hold one in a shop as see which size you prefer.

    I ordered immediately after the event because I’m traveling on the 8th and want to have it for my trip, I didn’t want to wait and have the shipping pushed out. I knew what I needed for storage and size before the announcement, so it made it really easy.

    Depends if you want it before or after Christmas.

    So far the delivery dates have moved out from 11/7 to 11/16 from this morning to now.

    True, but I’m in Japan so different shipping. But have a feeling it will be the same later.

    I’m waiting. I use my iPad as a laptop replacement. I want to get the maxed out model since it will last me a few years. I don’t have upward of 1500 dollars to spend right now.

    Last year when the 2nd generation of the 12.9 ipad was released, Bestbuy had the best offer ever - $250 off for iPad + keyboard.

    Yeah but it was released in March so would make sense for best buy to do something good for BF..but since this ipad pro just came out and thanksgiving is a few weeks away what are the odds they do something similar
