Ready to buy a new iPad? Don’t! (At least not yet)

“With 56 different iPads to choose from, Apple sure doesn’t make it easy to decide which one to buy,” Mark Rogowsky writes for Forbes. “But in this case if the analysis paralysis means you haven’t yet purchased a new iPad Air 2 or Mini 3, the decision will get at least a little bit easier 15 days from now.”

“Among the usual array of discounts from major retailer will be some very good deals on Apple’s new tablets, most notably from Target and Best Buy,” Rogowsky writes. “That should mean a lot of iPad sales for Apple to kick off the holiday shopping season as buyers get offers that represent nearly 1/3 off the purchase price of the iPad Air 2 in some cases.”

Rogowsky writes, “The deals are pretty straightforward but you’ll have to choose between immediate gratification and what ultimately is a bigger discount.”

  1. gift card problem:

    i want to buy an iPad mini only from apple store. I’ll be getting a $75 amazon gift card. unfortunately amazon does not sell apple store gift cards, only iTunes. Any ideas on how to parlay my amazon gift card into an apple store card?

  2. It’s not worth it. Everyone who owns an android tablet is going to be in line trying to get this sale. I’m perfectly happy with the student discount I got on the Cellular iPad Air 2 128GB weeks ago. If you’re a student, Apple offers this discount all year long and it’s typically just as good as any Black Friday deal that doesn’t require pushing up against 100 cheap penny scrapers and wasting valuable time in lines.

    1. When I first read this article title, I was thinking to myself “great, someone had inside information on last minute leaks of a pending iPad Pro”. I was relieved to see it was only a potential sale they were referring to. Pff, who cares.

  3. Have an iPad Air that is doing just fine for now. What I want this year for Festivus is a headless Mac that does not cost $4 Grand (Trashcan Mac) or is crippled with Vampire video (Mac mini).

    I own an LED Cinema that is doing just fine, but the Quad Core Mac Pro is getting old. If Apple would release a decent Mac mini that mapped the HW offerings of the iMac (discrete graphics AND upgradeable memory), I could just spec up a high end mini and send the Quad Core off to headless server duty.
