I currently use a notepad and pencil to take notes. I visited the Apple store and was told the Apple Pencil is almost like using a real pencil. Is this true? Is the increase in cost worth it? What would I be gaining? COST COMPARISON Current setup: Midori A5 Notebook = £7.50 + pencil = 0.40p = £7.90. New setup: Apple iPad Pro 9.7" = £550 + Apple Pencil £99 = £649.* * N.B. The updated iPad Pro costs £619 meaning a grant total of £718. Price difference = + £641.
