My daughter is getting serious about an iPad with pencil. I read the next gen 8 will be larger.
I know Costco just had a sale and we missed it. Micro Center has $50 off the 10.2 (128gb). The iPad Air 3 has a faster processor and more upgrades but is $100 more for 64gb. Any knowledge appreciated

Depends on how she plans to use it but the Air is a bit nicer with the antireflective coating and fully laminated display.

I want to agree with this.... but I dont know if its $250 nicer than a basic 32 GB 10.2 iPad ($250 on sale all the time)

Honestly... Id save my $$ for an iPP. If you are really serious they are worth it. My wifes 2018 10.5" iPP is amazing. Sound(!), color, screen(!) and the speed still are excellent.

The iPA was supposed to b some sort of middle ground... and it just wasnt... and *never* goes on sale.

Thanks for your input. She wants to draw/sketch/modify some photos using the pencil. She is a good cartoonist and wants to open her artwork possibilities. Her main forte was writing plays but this will be fun for her. Like my gen 6 iPad I think she will get hooked on it.

Money is an issue so wondering if twice the price for a an IPP would be worth it. Also thinking more storage the better although she uses Dropbox and can store projects

IMHO, use the cloud. $250 32 GB iPad is a deal. Does everything.

Like getting a Mustang... vs a Mustang GT350.

OK,looks like the $250 32gb iPads have dried up for the moment. I will keep an eye out
