The iPad Pro models are previous gen - A9X - even the 12.9" models. Not a deal.
how is that not a deal? $399 for ipad pro 9.7 is a great deal compared to 2017 regular iPad which is $329

70 dollars more for a laminated screen, pencil support, faster processor , more speakers, etc....

Don't think that is current version either. On BestBuy site it tells you if current models and it doesn't for those Not saying don't buy but be aware
But it's probably the 2015, which is identical except that the air got a .2 ghz processor bump in 2017

None of the sale items are current gen. Best Buy puts (Latest Model) on the current gen products.

Really tempted by the 9.7" Pro. But can't find a good reason since I have an Air II. Sigh. Guess I will save my money..

I think most of the general populace neither cares about nor needs the latest gen products. For general computing, last year's models at a significant discount represents a pretty darn good value. Heck I have a 2011 MBA that still operates great for standard computer activities. To be honest, it could still suffice for 75-80% of my work activities. We like the latest and greatest. It's my opinion that very few need the latest and greatest.
To go even further, I think any of the 2013 Macs (iMac, Air and Pro) are completely passable as primary computers. They all have USB 3.0, Haswell (for great battery life), Iris Pro or Intel 5000 graphics, and support all the latest features given by Bluetooth LE.

In fact, I have an 11" MacBook Air, 15" rMBP, and a 21.5" iMac, all with SSDs, all from 2013. And they are so good and fit my needs so well I don't know if I'll ever need another Mac. With the exception of being able to charge from a USB battery pack, I don't see any benefit to getting a new MacBook or MacBook Pro. And I don't need a retina screen on my iMac, since it functions more like a server for Plex.

Should I mention I got the iMac and MacBook Air used for half of their original price? I've saved so much money that I really don't mind paying full price for an iPhone 8 in September!
