If you’ve been holding out for a better price on a high storage capacity iPad Pro, Amazon may have you covered. The latest 11-inch iPad Pro with 1TB of storage is $200 off right now, bringing it down to $1,299. That’s the best price we’ve seen and $100 cheaper than its previous low.
There are very few differences between this year’s 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros. The larger model has Apple’s new Liquid Retina XDR display, which will improve your video-watching experience. But just because the 11-inch model doesn’t have the latest display tech doesn’t mean it has a paltry screen. You’re still getting a 2,388 x 1668 resolution Liquid Retina panel with ProMotion and True Tone technology, which is to say, it’s still a lovely screen.
Otherwise, the 2021 iPad Pros are much the same. Both run on M1 processors, giving them powerful performance and making them the best laptop alternatives Apple has made yet. They also have 5G support, a USB-C port that double as a Thunderbolt connector with USB 4.0 compatibility and new Center Stage cameras. The latter works to keep you in the center of the frame when on video calls, and that will make a big difference whether you’re on a Zoom meeting or just FaceTiming with your family.
Most people probably don’t need 1TB of space, but it’ll be useful if you’re a creative professional using the iPad Pro for both work and play, or someone who wants to ditch their old laptop for a hybrid device. Paired with the right accessories, this iPad Pro would make a solid laptop replacement.
