    Well, I have decided to pick up the iPad Pro 10.5, most likely 64GB along with the Apple Smart Keyboard from B&H Photo. Question is, when, in your all experience is the best time to buy? I'd obviously like to pick up the items on a deal. I can get them both now for $778 ($619 IPP / $154 ASK), out the door. Any idea if these items will be marked down a little more due to a sale around say, Thanksgiving, etc??

    If you can hold out 2 more months, the week of Thanksgiving/Black Friday traditionally has the best deals at $100 off.

    Wish I had bought 256GB 10.5" $100 off BEFORE the price hike. Now the price difference is $150 and BH was price matching with Bestbuy.

    I got a quote from B&H for $814. This includes a Zagg Glass screen protector, Smart Keyboard and 64GB IPP 10.5. Good? Bad deal? Opinions?

    I got my 64gb 12.9 for $699 at b&h, I'd wait for better prices, or try to go to a place that hasn't raised their prices yet to reflect Apple. If you need the keyboard it might be a good buy.

    If it was me, I'd also wait for better prices...

    Well for the 64GB IPP 10.5, BH hasn’t raised the price but lowered it to $619 from $650.

    The 64 GB is not included in the price hike, uses a different chip that doesn’t cost as much as the 256 it 512 GB modules.

    $31 less is not bad especially if you’re not paying tax but if you want the absolute best deal I’d wait until Black Friday. There may also be some rolling sales in the weeks leading up to Christmas too.

    My only concern is the possibility the prices get raised due to demand later on this year.

    Black Friday will be the best, the next best time will be just after Apple updates the tablet.

    Oftentimes Apple offers a 50-100 dollar gift card with purchasing the iPad as part of their Black Friday deals. Not exactly a deal, but that's an incentive.
