Any good iPad Pro 12.9 deals?
I just this week went through the process of upgrading my 2017 iPad Pro with a newer model and have been hunting for a deal for a while. The short answer is: There really aren't any, certainly nothing like the current deals on the lower models. The Pros seem to be Apple's firewall against lower margins on discounted models like the 9th gen. Even Amazon has only been offering token discounts of $10 or $20 off list.

My solution was to buy a certified refurb 2021 M1 based model direct from Apple. Decent discount relative to new ($130 on the 11" model I bought) without giving up warranty, etc. At least here in the US, there seems to be ample supply of all 2021 Pro models and sizes on the Apple Refurb site.

The only gotcha is if you've got your heart set on a current-gen M2 variety; there aren't any M2 iPad Pros in the refurb store and probably won't be for a while yet.

the m2 is a spec bump on a already OS limited environment, m1 is the way to go especially if the price difference is even somewhat significant.
