    Hi,

    I can get a used ipad pro 12.9 (128gb and wifi) for $700 with the smart keyboard.

    But now I know apple is gonna release new ipad pro in a couple a weeks...The 9.7 is too small for my need so I need a new 12.9 or this new 10.5 inches.

    What would you do considering new ipads might be very interesting (but probably too pricey for me) and , I suppose, older models will have lower prices...

    I can wait but I'll lose this opportunity but at the same time, there will be other used ipad to sell...

    what would you do ?

    You don't know that. You can only assume that.

    We can't tell you what you should do. Save money and get an iPad now, or wait and risk nothing coming out soon.

    You work for Apple?

    If not, you don't know.

    Ok for the guys out there that wanna say the same thing again, let's rephrase that

    "There is a good chance, with the rumors, that new ipads will come out but nothing is confirmed"

    I'm in a similar situation and understand how it can be...interesting...when a new device is around the corner.

    I would say wait. If a new "whatever" gets released, you'll have more options. You could go with the new one or wait for another deal on an old one.

    Good luck, whatever you decide!

    pretty simple, ask yourself: will the 12.9 inch iPad Pro do everything you need it to do?

    Yes? - Save money and buy it.
    No? - rethink your priorities and wait to see what is announced.

    You wait.

    If you don't like the new iPad Pro shown at WWDC, then you can buy a used one. Chances are, there will be even more used 12.9" iPad Pros being listed after WWDC. I wouldn't worry about "missing out" on a used one right now.

    Usually I'll say buy, but the 12.9 is one and a half year old. An even though I'm planning to keep on using mine for years and years to come, I'll say: wait.
    700 bucks is a good price, but 1,5 years is a long time and new feautures are nice to have.

    I currently have a 12.9 that I will be returning within the 14 days and will see what 05/06 brings. If one isn't announced I will repurchase.

    $700 for 12.9" iPP with ASK is a steal where I live, I'd grab that in a heartbeat.

    That is why I was hesitating. I said $700 US but I converted it. I'm Canadian and the guy is selling it $900 CDN.

    But here in canada, for the same NEW ipad and keyboard plus taxes, it's like $1600.

    So it was like $700 CDN less than a new

    As others have mentioned, I would wait to see what they announce in June. There will be plenty of cheap iPad options after that point. It's funny, I have no idea how Apple keeps luring me back to iPad. I have bought and sold 4 iPad's over the years.

    damn I went to an Apple store just to play with the ipad pro 12.......this is what I want. No doubt about it.

    I'll wait for WWDC to see if an updated 12'' is release and if not, I'll get a used one
