iPad Pro 12.9-inchFor today only, Best Buy is offering $125 off its entire selection of 12.9-inch iPad Pros, including the 256GB WiFi + Cellular version in Gold, Silver, and Space Gray.

Apple's latest top tier cellular-equipped 12.9-inch iPad Pro is currently priced at $1,104.99, rather than the recommended retail price of $1,229, while the 128GB cellular version is tagged at $954.99, compared to Apple's RRP of $1,079. The 256GB 12.9-inch iPad Pro sans cellular is also on sale at the online store for $974.99 (RRP $1,099).

Meanwhile, Best Buy's stock of 128GB Wi-Fi-only 12.9-inch iPad Pros are on offer for $824.99 (RRP $949), although potential buyers of the non-cellular version at the middle tier capacity may want to check in at Staples first with their Best Buy Price Match Guarantee in mind.

As if in response, the office supplies retailer is running its own one-day-only deal, offering an even more attractive $150 discount on its stock of 128GB 12.9-inch iPad Pros in all colors, now costing just $799 each. Meanwhile the 32GB capacity has had $100 slashed off its price tag, now on sale for $699 (RRP $799).

Just check the 9to5Toys page, they post sites that have sales on iPad Pros all the time.

I think it's a little different with the S7. They do the BOGO sales to increase initial demand for the product whereas the iPad Pro's frequent minimum $100 off sales seem to indicate the product was priced too high to begin with.
Apple has to realize that it has lost some of its magic. It can't just overcharge for a product without corresponding value to the consumer.

Maybe because it has a touch screen, Retina display, weighs less, more portable, runs iOS instead? That enough?
That's not a convincing argument to replace a computer for it.

I see the 12.7" iPad Pro as being for professional digital artists in an office environment and not for home users (except perhaps the extremely niche market of rich digital artists that work from home!) but here's the problem:

Professionals need professional (local) backup and storage capabilities for their work and I just can't see iOS and iCloud fulfilling those needs. The locked down nature of iOS (which might work well for home use) and lack of desktop-oriented organisation and file management tools is another factor.

It's fine if Apple wants the iPad to be a home-use toy or for light use only (email etc) but for serious professional environments iOS isn't well suited. This is where Microsoft's Surface, or more specifically a hybrid OS, has an edge. You can use local shared drives and install whatever backup (and other) software you need and the OS isn't locked down.
