    The misers have put just 3 GB of RAM in it. Expect it to struggle with iPadOS 14 onwards.

    I don’t understand this tier. You’re either shopping for the cheapest iPad or going for the one that has USB-C drive support and will be more future proof, right?

    I'd actually pick the middleground. ;) With iOS 13 it will be possible to access USB drives with a simple OTG adapter, which would be good enough for me since I don't often have the need to do that. Shame that there is no 128GB model though. 64GB is a little too small and 256GB way more than I need on an iPad.

    BTW, the price for the 256GB now shows as $739, so the deal is apparently over.

    Probably my one last real complaint with iOS devices. Way too little RAM. Apps constantly have to relaunch, compared to any other computing device in a similar price range. It’s not as if apple isn’t making a massive profit, so really the ram should be there. It’s also why they never advertise the amount of ram, because they know they aren’t close to competitors. They destroy everyone on mobile cpu, then handicap the device with pathetically skimpy amounts of ram.

    Waiting for the new Pros. I would have bought this Day 1 but did not want to be stuck with a gen 1 Pencil. Still using my old 9" iPad Air 2
