Why is the iPad 2018 so amazing and cheap?
I’ve had the iPad 2018 for 8 months now, bought it used off eBay for $250 (was just over 2 weeks old) and a used pen for $50 and it’s seriously the best tablet I’ve used (I had a Surface Pro 3 which I sold for $450 at the time and it SUCKED). I use an XPS 15 maxed out specs minus the 4k screen, and an iPhone XR. While I slightly dislike macbooks I can seriously say that iOS is leaps beyond the competition (and I’ve literally had every android flagship in the past)
Over the holiday’s a new 2018 was as low as $235 in some stores for the base model. So for $300-$400 it’s just totally changed the way I learn at school. This is dirt cheap…. With a matte protector I can write effortlessly for 6-12 hours a day doing practice problems and other school work, carry all my books in PDF format and taking notes with a pencil is more effective than typing.
Only thing I wish is that Apple released an “iPhone XR” type of tablet, 12″ bezel-less LCD, Apple pencil 2 support (easier to erase. They can use the A12 for all I care, I’d still pay $500 for that with a pencil 2. As much as I want the new iPad Pros I cannot justify the price but they are truely great products. I also don’t want to buy used a year from now cuz buying new I can get up to 4 years of free warranty from Costco & Citi.
TL;DR iPad 2018 is freaking amazing and IMO better than anything Pixel, Android, or Surface out there in writing with a pencil at least.
