We don't need to tell you that the Apple iPad is a wondrous tablet that lets you watch YouTube and Netflix on a glorious 10.2-inch display without disturbing anyone around you on-the-go; sketch or create a spreadsheet and manuscript without limiting you to a chunky laptop; and makes your web navigation buttery smooth.

However, we also don't need to tell you that, for all the things the iPad can do for you, many of the accessories you need to make all that good stuff happen—including, unbelievably, a keyboard, pen, even earbuds—don't actually come with the iPad itself. And if you want them directly from Apple, you'll have to pony up some serious dough—wireless headphones from Apple alone run you up to $550! The idea!

But there's a better way. QVC is offering the Apple iPad complete with all the accessories you need to get the most out of the world-renowned tablet. And the retailer just knocked $458 off the price, bringing this beauty down from $938 (if purchased separately) to a crazy-low $480. That's—wait for it—nearly 50 percent off.

And that amazing price comes with an amazing array of extras. In addition to the aforementioned wireless headphones, you'll get a pair of earbuds. You'll also find a lightning-to-USB-C cable and USB-C power adapter, Bluetooth keyboard and stylus, a neoprene sleeve, a tablet stand (which comes in fun color combinations, such as Gold and Rose Gold, Silver and Blue Marble, Space Gray and Leopard and much more) and a cleaning cloth in the box. Unbelievable, huh? If this were a movie it would be a blockbuster sequel called The Apple iPad: Fully Loaded.

So, you're intrigued, but not sure you wanna put $458 on your credit card right this minute? Good news: QVC lets you opt for five 'Easy Pays' of just $96, with no interest at all. And if you're new to QVC, you can chop another $10 off the already-amazing price with promo code OFFER at checkout.

Some tech stats on the latest iPad iteration (32GB/Wi-Fi model): It has the same impressive 10.2-inch display, quick Touch ID fingerprint sensor and 3GB of memory as the last version, but it features a speedier processor. (For the tech-savvy, that quickness comes from Apple’s A12 Bionic chip). You’ll notice—and appreciate—that when you're watching videos, roaming the web, or gaming. You'll also appreciate getting up to ten hours of action with every battery charge.

So many extras and accessories included in this deal that we can't fit them all in one pic. (Photo: Apple)

As mentioned, the newest iPad comes with a Bluetooth keyboard and stylus, a boon for all you note takers and sketchers. It also has an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel ‘selfie’ camera for FaceTime. Who knew how much video-chatting we’d be doing these days? Camera quality matters!

About those extras....

And it isn't just the included accessories that make this such a killer deal—you'll get access to a bunch of fun subscription services.

This killer deal also includes three years of TheMacU to learn the ins-and-outs of your new Apple device and its software (a $75 value), a three-year membership to SplashID Pro for password protection (a $60 value), one year of This Week In Photo to improve your photography skills (a $128 value), three months of America’s Test Kitchen Digital All Access for recipes and meal prep (a $19 value) and one year of Plus to get your e-mail organization into shipshape (a $100 value).

Is there more, you ask? Yes, there's more! This iPad package also comes with Pandora Premium for on-demand and commercial-free music (a $30 value), two months of (a $30 value), Take Control of Apple Home Automation eBook (a $15 value) and a one-year membership to My SOS Family for personal safety alert system (a $34 value).
