Given its robust set of features and laptop-killing performance, the 4th generation iPad Pro is one of the best tablets to buy if you aren't on a strict budget. Amazon has the optional Apple Magic Keyboard on sale for $329 ($20 off). Its backlit keys and trackpad make for a pleasurable typing experience.

The iPad Pro in this deal features a 12.9-inch (2732 x 2048) Liquid Retina display, an A12Z Bionic CPU, 6GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage. There's also a dual-camera system onboard with a LIDAR scanner and Wi-Fi 6 support. 

As detailed in our iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2020) review, we were amazed by its ridiculously fast A12Z Bionic CPU performance, brilliant display, and improved cursor control. We gave the 12.9-inch iPad Pro an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars and our coveted Editor's Choice award. 

In our lab, the iPad Pro achieved a score of 4,720 on the multi-core portion of the Geekbench 5 overall performance test. It beat the previous-gen iPad Pro's A12X Bionic chip (4,635) as well as the Microsoft Surface Pro 7's 10th gen Intel Core i5 chip (4,443).

When it comes to design, the 4th generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro looks nearly identical to its predecessor. Just about the only difference is that it has a square camera bump in the upper left corner. At 0.2 inches thin and weighing 1.4 pounds, the 4th gen iPad Pro 12.9-inch tablet is thinner and lighter than the Surface Pro 7 (0.3 inches, 1.7 pounds). It's just as thin as the Galaxy Tab S7 Plus but slightly heavier. (0.2 inches, 1.3 pounds). 

As with all iPad Pro deals, this one won't last long, so we recommend you jump on it while it's still in stock. And be sure to check our best Apple deals hub for the best discounts on all things Apple.
