iPad Air 256GB or iPad Pro 11″ 64GB
Hello guys. I am currently looking to purchase a new iPad within these 2 months. I would like to wait if Apple would release a new iPad Pro in November but if not, then I am torn between 2 options. It’s either the 256GB iPad Air 2019 or the 64GB iPad Pro 11″.
Using the best price I could find within my region, the iPad Air 256GB will sell for about 626 USD meanwhile the 64GB iPad Pro will sell for about 690 USD. The gap is only about 60-80 USD so I’m not sure whether it is worth it to jump to the Pro but sacrificing storage.
A bit about myself and what my usage might look like: I’m currently a trainee in a company and won’t be doing any intensive work for the next year. Most likely will use my iPad as a secondary device to help with different research, making presentations and drafting different notes. On the other side, I’m also starting to grow my photography hobbies – so I might also use my iPad to store and edit photos from my camera. Other usage might include: storing pdfs and ebooks for reading, occasional gaming (though I rarely play mobile games), and streaming music + videos.
For intensive tasks I will rely on my Macbook Pro and I will do my main work in my computer. The iPad is mostly for my secondary and mobile device which I can carry around everywhere easier. After reading this article ([https://www.theguardian.com/technology/askjack/2019/oct/24/which-is-best-ipad-air-or-ipad-pro-11](https://www.theguardian.com/technology/askjack/2019/oct/24/which-is-best-ipad-air-or-ipad-pro-11)) my choice is leaning towards the iPad Air 256GB as storage is one of the things we rather ” have it and not need it” instead of “need it but not have it”. However after trying out both iPads in the Apple store I was completely drawn to that immersive and fluid screen of the 11″ and thinking it will give me a better user experience overall.
Any opinions or suggestions will be appreciated! 🙂
