These iPad's will be around $399 once the new ipads launch. I'll Just say wait it out at this point. Useless it's an emergency, but just return the iPad and get the new one once they launch it.

100% - I got my last-gen iPad Air for $399 when they launched this model. Plus, this has been on sale for $450 recently, so $499 isn't much of a deal at all

The M1 is still a plenty powerful chip, but is it wise to buy an Apple device with what is now a 3.5 year old chip in it?
