So, 11" or the 12.9" version? Can't decide between the two. The 12.9" seems like it's be good when I do some design work or draw but the 11" seems so much more convenient

Everyone keeps asking the same question. You can return the accessories but it is a little YMMV even though it shouldn’t be.

Bought a 11” 64GB LTE in June with the last deal. Returned the case and screen protector. Super hot. Ordered accessories on Ebay instead. Also bought the $99 Apple keyboard from Costco when they were clearing them out. Great combo. Typing on it right now. Barely use my MacBook Pro now and when I do I’m always trying to touch its screen.

Waiting on an Aliexpress Apple Pencil clone to arrive.

Thx Op!...
I've included the link that highlights how a Dr. Fully utilizes Ipad Pro he has 11" but upgraded to 12.9" with the Magic keyboard is the recommended size. I missed out on the last deal cause I was on the fence 11 vs 12.9. But 1 Tb 12.9 with LTE. is a steal. I'm also pairing it with LTE fido Tablet sim 3gig 50% off $7.50 legacy deal.

The 11"vs 12.9"

Bought 11" TB w/ LTE.

So you can't use a Bluetooth mouse with this generation? That's a big bummer..

What? Where did you get that from? I'm using the Logitech MX mouses perfectly fine with this iPad.

I hate these guys. Especially in a deal like this when there are multiple models, all with different prices. I mean, c'mon guys.

ordered the 12.9" 1tb wifi lte last time and returned it. Couldn't justify $1500 after tax.
This time... ordered the 11" 1tb wifi lte... maybe I can justify $1300 after tax lol
Will try and return the case and screen protector.

I bought a 1tb lte and returned it. Going for the 2021 ipad pro instead. These current 2018 ones are only a good deal if you have a use for 1 tb of storage

My mom wanted a 12.9" but we were about to get a 2020 11" to replace her first gen iPad air because the 12.9" was a bit expensive. I ended up getting her a 12.9" 2018 since they're pretty damn close in terms of performance and it's more reasonably priced. Thanks!

And about getting the 2021 version, idk what that'll be but I assume it'll be around the same price as the 2020. With accessories, $2000-2500 after taxes. Not exactly the same ballpark honestly.

This is why I’ve always been saying it’s only a good deal “IF” you;re going to make good use of 1TB storage. Otherwise, you’re basically paying regular price for the base level model of the generation.

I don't really understand the argument. I picked up the 256gb for her because that's enough for her needs, getting the equivalent 2020 model would've cost roughly $500 more in my area. 1TB doesn't really factor into it in her use case, it's basically $500 less for 95% of the performance. I don't think it's a bad deal at all. Especially since the alternative was to get the 2020 11" which would've been a compromise for her.

It’s $979 for the new iPad Pro wifi only. You get 6gb of ram and 128gb storage. You also get AirPods.

$799 for the older model with LTE. you get half the storage at 64gn and 4 GB RAM. You also get a screen protector and case which you can return for around $80 or keep and not have to buy yourself.

I think it’s a really good deal as long as you know what you are getting. For what I do I wouldn’t notice a RAM difference and the strong majority of my storage is cloud based. Having LTE on the iPad is awesome.
