    You really shouldnt expect a discount for a brand new item. The only (in my book that is) resellers you should look at is Beyond the Box and iStudio.

    Beyond the Box has a discount for Philmug members. just go to their corner in this site & look for the thread regarding member discounts.

    The reviews weren't exaggerating, Promotion is definitely a game changer, its so silky smooth when operating the ipad pro!

    It's been two weeks since the announcement. Still no news from our local resellers on when it will be available in PH?

    It usually takes about a month before it hits local stores here in manila... worth the wait though, been using mine for couple of days now and this device is very fluid and the 10.5 screen is a great compromise for portability and screen real estate

    It's nice and all but I am waiting for my iPad Air to stop receiving iOS updates before buying a new iPad.

    I really hope they put in Promotion in their next iphones, that 120hz screen makes this ipad pro 10.5 so smooth... the jump is like coming from non-retina to retina screen, but this time its the smoothness of the interface, it really should be witnessed first hand, hard ro describe it

    I plan to buy this in HK but my travel to HK is not till later this year tsk! By that time iOS 11 is already released! As much as I want to get it earlier locally, the price difference quoted in Apple PH vs Apple HK is already enough to buy me an Apple Pencil. huhubels D:

    I actually got mine from a store who sourced it from HK, and you are right, its cheaper by 5k. I actually dont promote buying from an unauthorized seller, but for those like me who cant wait and since its not overpriced compared to local prices (i actually saved about 5k) there are options out there :)

    Folks, that 120 Hz refresh rate is a game changer. If you're coming from an iPad Air like me, this is the time to upgrade.
