Apple’s new 9.7-inch iPad, which we thought was a good deal at $329 for the 32GB version, gets frequently discounted to $300 at various online stores. But Best Buy has it for $280 as part of its one-day “Cyber Monday in July” sale. The 128GB version, usually $430, is $380.
Best Buy also has the 128GB iPad 4 on sale for $300. That’s not bad — it’s normally $399 — but a few days ago it was on sale for $275.
We expect iPad sales to continue. The question is what will the entry-level iPad cost during real Black Friday sales this holiday season? $250 seems likely.
