Powered by Apple's M1 chip, the 2021 iPad Pro brings blazing fast performance to Apple's most powerful tablet series. The base model 2021 iPad Pro features an 11-inch Retina Display, Apple's aforementioned M1 chip, and 128GB of storage.

Although we didn't test Apple's next-gen Pro tablet, the 2020 iPad Pro is our favorite tablet. In our 2020 iPad Pro review, we praised its ridiculously fast A12Z Bionic CPU performance, brilliant display, and improved cursor control. We gave the iPad Pro a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and our hard to get Editor's Choice award. 

Performance-wise, we expect the latest Apple M1 Chip-powered iPad Pro to surpass its predecessor. This is the same chip found on Apple's latest MacBook Air, which is close to perfect. With an optional Apple Magic keyboard, the new iPad Pro is bound to be a solid MacBook alternative for some. 

As an alternative, you can swing over to Amazon and snag the 2020 iPad Pro for just $689.95 ($109 off). Still one of the best tablets around, it affords you an 11-inch (2388 x 1668) edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display, A12Z Bionic CPU, 128GB of storage, and new dual-camera system with LIDAR.

These iPad Pro deals likely won't last too long, so we recommend you make haste.
