If all the small enhancements to the iPad Pro 10.5 aren't speaking to you, good deals on the original 9.7-inch Pro have arrived. As spotted by 9to5Toys, Best Buy is offering a one-day-only deal on the 32GB 9.7-inch Pro right now: $449.99, which is $150 off the typical $599.99 asking price.

The main reason to grab a Pro model over the recently released $329 iPad model is Pencil support, but, of course, the Pencil isn't included with the Pro models, it's an extra $99. Also, Apple's Smart Keyboard covers for the 9.7-inch Pro aren't compatible with the 10.5-inch Pro, so that's something else to watch out for. Basically this isn't the greatest deal in tablets, but it is a good tablet that's about to get a lot more interesting with iOS 11. And $450, or $400 if you want to dig around for a refurbished model, is certainly more accessible than the $650 Apple wants for the 10.5-inch new stuff.
