Staples Debuts iPad Pro Pre-Orders With November 25 Launch Date

by

With Sam's Club having started taking pre-orders for the iPad Pro on Friday and selling out within hours and MacMall also moving to accept pre-orders ahead of an expected launch next week, Staples is the latest major U.S. retailer to allow customers to begin placing orders for the new device.

Staples is offering all Wi-Fi models of the iPad Pro for pre-order, as well as a number of accessories including the Apple Pencil, Smart Keyboard, and both Smart Covers and Silicone Cases in charcoal gray and white. One catch for those looking to order through Staples is that the office supply retailer is quoting a launch of November 25, the day before Thanksgiving. With Apple and other retailers apparently anticipating a launch towards the end of next week, Staples customers wouldn't be among the first to get their hands on the new device.

Staples is also not offering any discounts on the iPad Pro at this time, selling the 32 GB models for $799 and 128 GB models for $949. The Apple Pencil is priced at $99 and the Smart Keyboard is available for $169, while the Smart Covers are priced at $59 and the Silicone Cases at $79.

Guys, the iPad Pro sucks, don't buy it. Especially not the space grey 128gb cellular one. And if you really want that one, please don't buy it from the Apple Store in Crossgates Mall in Albany NY.

Thank You!

Exactly! It's a HUGE waste of money. Definitely don't buy a 128GB WiFi in space grey from the Reston Town Center Apple Store either. In fact, I heard RTC is having a clown, mime, and fingernails-on-chalkboards-enthusiasts convention that day, so you might want to just avoid the place altogether ;)

There aren't any Staples in the UK AFAIK, so shipping & VAT might drive the price up just a bit...

There are plenty of Staples stores around the UK. I'd expect their prices to match Apple UK when the release is announced.

I already reserved all of them because I knew that you were going to be in line and waiting to purchase one or maybe all of them :D

I doubt it, but I'm curious to see if any stores will have any special Black Friday deals a couple days later.
