I think it really depends on your use case.

Do you really need the power of the M1 iPad Pro with its XDR display? Are you trying to use it as a laptop replacement or for media consumption?

In my opinion, unless you're using it for your profession, the Air should check the boxes for most.
Are you trying to get both an iPad and then a MBP?
06-17-2021 at 04:50 PM
That's my intention. I'd be using it for Universal Control and Side Car. As far as Pro features are concerned, I'm attracted to the 120hz for sketching, including Lidar for AR features. Procreate 5.2 is going to add painting for CAD files, which their page said would directly take advantage of the M1. I also would like to own this tablet for as long as possible, so M1 might help with extended support. My major is Radio Television and Film, and I'm looking to do the heavy lifting for editing on the M1X Macbook Pro. The Pro might be overkill for me, but center stage and AR seem very practical fot my production design work.

I was waiting for the MBP too but just bought the Air instead. Who knows how much it'll cost (some rumors say the MBP 13 will remain on th e lower end) and who knows when they will have sufficient volume since TSMC was on low production for the last few months due to the drought (new iphone gets priority on chip production). I would expect the new MBP in August at the earliest and maybe even November if chip shortagfes are as serious as they are for everyone else.

My machine is worth thousands in productivity to me every month so it's worth it in my case to buy a MBA now and sell it at a small loss to get the new MBP whenever it comes out comes out. Your case may be different.

my receipt shows the same... i did installment loan and have installments for both airpods and the ipad, it took the price of the airpods off the ipad... so ill bet if you return to apple they'd see it was part of a promotion but walmart/target/best buy might return without receipt for store credit? waiting for someone to chime in also.... would prefer not to try to sell on craigslist and get scammed/killed as i already have 2 pair of airpods....

I loaded my Amazon gift card on my account. Then I used it to buy the GC. You can try the apple email GC first. If that does not work, then try the physical GC to be mailed to you
Ok, I will keep trying then. I tried the email option and the order auto cancelled.. I will try the different cards available. Thanks !!

to confirm they wouldn't let you return just the airpods pro? that's a bummer as I don't really need the airpods so was hoping to be able to return them.

Yup, they told me there's no benefit of returning the AirPods Pro so i just opted to return and just keep the free AirPods.

I think this is building the space for the new version. I am hoping they are coming with 16GB Mac Mini at more reasonable price.
They do this deal every year at this time.

Quote from mehul73 :
FYI... if someone is interested in buying this from Bestbuy, I called them and they matched this deal. $899.99 for Macbook Air and free Airpods. They have $130 Apple competitor discount coupon in their system for this price match. I went with Bestbuy because of AMEX offer of spend $50 get $50 back from earlier this year.
Really? What did you say with them to get them to match the deal??
