Apparently good things really make to those who wait. Today, Amazon sells the 32GB 9.7-inch iPad with Wi-Fi for just $ 249, down $ 80 from the $ 329 retail price. Last week, I was amazed that Amazon sold it at $ 279.99, but this latest sale will almost double that discount. It's a much lower price than anywhere else.
It's not quite the lowest price we've ever seen it listed for, but it comes in pretty close .
This is not the only massive sale we see for this device on Amazon. You can also get the 128GB Wi-Fi model for just $ 329.99, down a full $ 100 from its normal $ 429 price. You want to keep your iPad filled with games and movies. Even better, these tapes with the lowest price we've ever seen the 128GB model with Wi-Fi listed for.
As I have said many times before, I love this iPad. It's powerful enough to make it a smart alternative to the iPad Pros if you don't need power – and in most cases you won't, and this model also supports the first generation Apple Pencil. Just be aware that you must purchase the pencil separately.
Quite frankly, I am surprised that we are seeing price drops that are steep for this model. I wonder if Apple is preparing an iPad update this spring. Current speculation suggests that we may see a new iPad mini, but I have personal doubts.
Nevertheless, this model does a good job of dealing with almost everything I throw at it, and I know it will work well for some buyers in the years to come.
