Spending $799 or more on an iPad Pro isn't necessary for most people. Unless you're seriously thinking about using an iPad as a laptop replacement, the additional features on the Pro (slightly better screen, faster processor, better speakers and cameras, smart keyboard) aren't worth the extra money. If you want a top notch tablet that does all of the things tablets are supposed to be good at, the 9.7-inch iPad will do those things and then some. It even has support for the Apple Pencil this time around.
That having been said, the standard $329 list price on the 32GB model is pretty attractive to begin with. However, Walmart has dropped the price to only $249 in Gold, Silver, and Space Grey colors with free shipping (arrives before Christmas). That matches the best price that we saw around Black Friday. Grab it here while the sale (supplies) last (just select the color of your choice). The 128GB model is also on sale for $329 (23% off).
The official description and spec list reads:
The new 9.7-inch iPad features the powerful A10 Fusion chip so you can easily multitask and use the latest apps including augmented reality experiences.1 With iOS 11, iPad is more powerful, personal, and intelligent, so you can do more than ever.
