Apple iPad Pro 10.5" 64GB Wi-Fi $649, 256GB Wi-Fi $799 (+$5.95 Delivery Regional / Free Delivery Metro / Free C&C) @ Officeworks

940

A reasonable price for a reasonable iPad. It is likely to be on clearance, but it is not categorised as such on the website.

I cannot find any stock listed in any stores according to their website, but C&C is still an option, which is especially good if you don't want to pay the $5.95 regional delivery fee.

Available models:

As a side note, I find it bizarre that Officeworks charges $5.95 to deliver an item to Canberra, yet sending it to Hobart is free. Since when was Canberra regional and Hobart not…?

    My 10.5” still goes very well, not laggy at all. Looking to upgrade for USB c though myself.

    Wouldn't the iPad(2019) be a better buy at this point? 10.2 inch screen, but 2 years newer. Both support the Apple Pencil 1st Gen. 32gb model for $529, or 128gb model for $689.

      Ipad Pro

      120Hz display, better graphics card, 4 speakers, Stablised camera, 4k video recording

      It's only got A10 vs much quicker A10X in the Pro. On top of that the Pro has nicer display, camera, speakers, etc. Definitely worth it for $649 vs $529

      I am thinking the same thing. Wonder if this being 2 year older one day will stop receiving updates first compared to the 2019 iPad.

      • +4 votes

        That’s not how it works with Apple. Devices only stop getting updates when they don't have the capability to. This being a more recent iteration of the A series processors than the iPad 2019 means at worst they'll both stop receiving updates at the same time (which will be no less than 3 or 4 years from now).

        •  

          Thanks for the info.

          So this is definitely better buy than the 2019 iPad?

            @peuwayaqdq: Well, that depends on your usage. The regular iPad has closed the edge on some of the iPad Pro 2017 features. You're getting a similar sized screen, both Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard compatibilities, and a decent processor, but none of the specs are better. What you get more out of the iPad Pro 2017 is a better screen (fully laminated screen, 120Hz frequency, Wide colour display, true tone and HDR compatibility), thinner device, 4 speakers, more powerful processor and GPU units, and better front and rear cameras.

          That's not how it works either. Apple could keep updating older iPads if they wanted to, but they choose not to so people rush out and buy a new one. It has nothing to do with capability of the hardware.

    Funny, it's two years old but still seems better than the new iPad and iPad Air (other than A12)

    But I guess technically this should come with 12 + another 12 months of warranty (due to our laws).

    The hardware design is flawed, the connector internally pushes up on the screen and causes the white spot, eventually. Happens more if you put it in a backpack or a travel bag.

    I'm looking to trade in my 2017 iPad. Does anyone know who does credit for a trade in? EB I know about

    •  

      The only two options I can think of off the top of my head:

      • Apple, but you probably won't get much back for the device.
      • CeX, especially if there's one near you.

      Best bet is eBay. Despite the risks most buyers are genuine and there is a huge, liquid market for second hand iPads with really good resale values.

      I’ve never had a winner with less than 10 feedback but if someone like that won it i would cancel the sale

      mobilemonster.com.au has been known to give pretty decent pricing for iphones. a base model 64gb 10.5" pro will get $240 which isnt great though.

    This is no ordinary iPad thank you very much.

    It's the last model with a home button, I am pretty sure it's the last model with a headphone jack. It's also still ridiculously fast, with 4 speakers, not 2 and a nice screen size.

    It's great.

      And if you compare the screen quality next to a normal ipad it is VASTLY better.
      Don't forget last ipad pro with touchid also.

      They really did peak at the ipad pro 10.5 - too many comprimises with the newer models.

    •  

      The 10.2 and Air 10.5 both have HPJ and home buttons.

    Apple's Pro of yesterday is better than their entry level of today - makes sense (except for the 9.7' Pro version, ick!)

  •  

    how is this compared to the current pro?

  •  

    It seems like this model iPad Pro is the one without USB-C. Although it a better buy than the basic iPad offerings for 2019, not a good buy if you want an iPad "Pro". USB-C is a must if you want to use it for productivity.

      for productivity you'd get a surface instead

      • +1 vote

        Depends what sort of productivity you're doing. For creatives, ipad pro comes out much better. The amount of apps on Apple Store at your disposal is crazy. Windows store apps is useless.

        •  

          Can't surface use any 64 bit program? That makes it super useful

          •  

            @belongsinforums: Yes it can use 64bit programs. However the Surface is nothing more than a laptop with touch screen. I wouldn't use it as a tablet. It's damn heavy and windows apps is long dead. While the iPad offers the advantage of having such a huge app selection at your fingertip.
            However, in a work place, the Surface is better choice as it is basically a PC.

    Which one of the pros supports the apple pen? My daughter is a mad drawer and wants a pro for learning how to draw digitally. We tried with her mini and a bamboo tip but it's not suited to the task. She tried a pro and pen in store a few months back and loved it. But not sure if the pen is only for current versions?

      The Apple Pencil works with all iPad Pros, just make sure you get the first generation Apple Pencil if you get the ones with a home button, otherwise get a second generation Apple Pencil if you get one without a home button :)

    •  

      All the generations of iPad Pro support it, however, the newer Apple Pencil 2 is made exclusively for the 2018 iPad, where as the Apple Pencil 1 is made for the iPad Pro 2016/2017. There are no differences in the inking and feel of the two Apple Pencils. The only differences between them two is that Apple Pencil 2 has wireless charging, can be magnetically attached to the iPad itself, and has a touch interface on the surface of the pen.

      The deal here supports the 1st gen Apple pencil.

    Tempting, but the 2018 iPad Pro might become cheaper if Apple releases a new one this month at their October event.

    •  

      hence why 2017 stock and the 2018 models are slowly being moved into pre-Black Friday sales, so they can get back shelf space / inventory.

  •  

    These iPad pro has touch screen issues. Get ready to visit apple store after a month or two.

    •  

      Care to elborate?
      I've had one and use it quite a lot for over a year and a half now and am yet to see any problems.
      Would be nice to know what to look out for I guess?

    I ended up getting the 2019 iPad Air 256GB Wifi instead. Just because of the A12 Bionic chip with neural engine.

    Hopefully will get longer support.

  •  

    no buy. google iPad 10.5 pro white spot.

    Got 2017 12.9" recently. Amazing tablet, premium screen, speakers, DSP, smooth performance… Well worth as bought refurbished. Not much more expensive than 2019 new iPad.

      Especially if you play music instruments and want to use tablet for sheet music, 12.9" iPad is the best choice in market. Highly recommended.

  •  

    I tried to purchase one via their website and as I was going through the payment section of the order it came up with an error after picking Paypal as my preferred payment method. Refreshed and tired the whole process a second time and the same thing happened, I checked my bank account and two payments of $824.95 had been taken out. I rang up officeworks and they confirmed that no orders had been placed.

    Was anyone else able to purchase one?

    Come time to resell, it’s so so hard to resell this iPad Pro version as 2nd hand market wants the pro without the button.

  •  

    "Sorry, but we could not add this product into your cart"
    :(

    •  

      Actually, it won't let me add anything to my cart. Maybe a glitch on their site?
      edit Seems to be a glitch on my Chrome browser… just successfully used Safari. Might be a Catalina OS issue. Very strange.

    Just recently got the 64 GB iPad Air 3 (2019 version) as it was a good price on a 20% off eBay special from wireless1. Price was about $660 after discount and cashback. I had originally tried to find one of these older pro models as an option, but even refurb models were closer to the $900 mark when I was looking. The one I got also came with the one year free Apple plus streaming service, which is worth about $70 or so to those who might want it. I don't particularly care about taking photos with it or using the inbuilt speakers (I use headphones generally), so the only thing that I might miss is the superior display refresh rate. But in my mind having even a slightly better processor is more important than a faster display for my purposes, so overall I'm happy with what I got.

  •  

    Thanks, bought at JB on price match

  •  

    Got a used one for $600 with apple pencil, case and other accessories.
    really good buy in my opinion compared to the Air model

  •  

    Hi everyone,

    Can anyone confirm if this is the same one as what OW is offering here? https://www.catch.com.au/product/apple-10-5-inch-ipad-pro-64...

    Sorry I am not familiar with the different generations of Ipads so was hoping someone could confirm. Thank you!
