iPad Air 2 $279 at Costco B&M YMMW

Just picked up an iPad Air 2 instore at Costco for $279. I have no idea if this is local but the price had a little * next to it which means something at Costco I believe. They had the 2017 iPad for $319 right next to it but this was another $40 less for my parents who were still using the first one Smilie

If that's a iPad Air 2 Wifi 16GB, that's not really a deal.

Both have 9.7-inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel displays (264ppi). I thought.

True though that may be, the new one lacks the fully laminated screen with an AR coating, so it is considered a step down from the Air 2. It also has some nearly unnoticeable differences in size, weight and the width of the borders between the screen and the edge of the device (new device being the larger and heavier of the two). The new ipad does have a more powerful processor, though.

It depends.. With the laminated screen, it cost close to 150 dollars to fix the screen if you crack it, because you have to buy the entire unit. On the older iPad / 2017, I think fixing the cracked screen glass will be much cheaper and easier to do yourself

The asterik ( * ) means Costco cannot (or won't) order any more of that product, so when it goes out of stock it won't be back. Did the price end in 7? That will indicate it's on clearance.

Either way...it's an okay deal, Best Buy had this for the same price back on black friday 2016 and for a while after.

Just FYI Costco will tell you which stores have this in stock. I live in Texas and only El Paso store has one. So almost gone
