Although Apple’s full-sized, entry-level iPad is great for casual use, the Apple iPad Pro is for when you need more power and speed..when you need a little bit more oomph. And here's some wow to go with that oomph: The latest 12.9-inch, Wi-Fi-only model is on sale for $999, or $100 off at Amazon.

Apple rarely discounts its hardware — and this is the lowest price we’ve ever seen from the retail giant on this super-popular model. How popular? It's earned a perfect five-star rating from more than 8,400 reviewers. 

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Raw power and speed

The Apple iPad Pro comes with a larger 12.9-inch Liquid Retina display (the standard version has a 10.2-inch display). It's also brainier and brawnier than previous models, with 256GB of on-board storage instead of the standard's 32GB thanks to Apple's latest A12Z Bionic chip. In just about every way, it’s bigger, faster, sharper and sleeker.

"Amazing! The perfect device for work and play," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "The sheer power in this handheld device (albeit a large one) is astounding. More powerful than my once state-of-the-art MacBook Pro, with an insane portability factor. I actually returned my 11-inch Pro (which was still great) because the extra 1.9-inch real estate is truly a game changer!"

A true laptop replacement

There’s a reason why it’s called an iPad Pro. It’s designed for productivity and used by pros for getting the job done. It's also pro-foundly efficient for its size, coming in at just over a pound. It truly hits the sweet spot between power and design.

In fact, when paired with the Apple Smart Keyboard or Apple Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil (all sold separately), it makes for a zippier and lighter laptop replacement.

"Hello, total workflow! Best iPad ever! I’ve owned iPads before but didn’t use them that much except for watching videos on flights," raved one Amazon shopper. "This one married with the magic keyboard is my everyday accessory. I don’t know how I got by without it. It’s incredible with photo editing, so fast and accurate. Using the pencil is a dream. The stunning visual quality is jaw dropping. I can’t ever see myself going back to a laptop again."

At $999 (was $1,099), the Apple iPad Pro is the tech company's largest and speediest tablet yet. It's simply the best! And at this sale price, you're gonna wanna snag it quick before it sells out.

"An amazing speedy and responsive tablet as expected when buying an iPad Pro," added another five-star reviewer. "This tablet's speakers and big screen are amazing for any type of media consumption as well as multi-tasking. The iPad Pro could definitely even replace your laptop in some circumstances..."
