I am a music major in college and this iPad is amazing to use, especially with the Apple Pencil. I came from and iPad Air 2 and the performance is amazing. The screen is super sharp and the battery lasts all day! This is a product I can highly recommend!
Was debating between Ipad Air 3 or Ipad 7th Gen. Initially purchased the Ipad Air 3 and did not notice difference between it and the 7th Gen. Only use Ipad for web browsing, email and text messaging, not a power user. Discovered that I could do the same stuff on the 7th Gen. Returned the Air 3 and purchased the 7th Gen, which was on sale and had a gift card too. Purchase the ipad 7th Gen for under $200!!! What a deal! Really enjoying my new Ipad. Yes, it is not as powerful as the Pros, but it does what I need and I am happy with that. I mean, come on, an Ipad for under $200?! I will use for a year or so until I can find a better deal on an upgrade. Until then, I am perfectly content with this 7th Gen. Highly recommend for anyone that does not want to spend crazy Ipad Pro pricing, to go with a perfectly and reasonably priced Ipad 7th Gen. You will not regret it.
Full disclosure...I am an apple user across the board (iPad, MacBook, iPhone, and iPod). I was actually looking for a birthday gift for my fiancé and wanted to get him a tablet as he was using my old 2013 iPad. He clearly stated he didn’t want an iPad as he is not an apple user but once I saw the new iPad I just had to upgrade my iPad Air 2 after seeing I could use the Apple Pencil. So I traded in my air 2 at Best Buy and got the new one. I absolutely love it. I love the ability to use the pencil for note taking since I take lots of notes and have lots of paper laying around. This new iPad is super fast and I love some of the new features that my old air didn’t have. All in all I wasn’t shopping for myself but I am sure glad I came across this upgrade. An iPad is a must have for convenience. I got the WiFi only version because I use WiFi at work and home so no need for an extra monthly cost plus my Verizon plan has hotspot if I ever need to hook up to the internet really quick. I think this is a good mid range option as the pro is just not affordable and I feel like I might as well buy a MacBook for that price. You won’t regret this purchase,

The $499 iPad Air is a notable upgrade in almost every respect over the $329 iPad. It has a bigger, better screen, more storage and support for Apple's Smart Keyboard case. Unless you're on a tight budget, it's worth the extra cash and is probablyFull Review

A:Answer I wouldn't bother. They all love to crow about there trade in program. But they are so undervalued its better to try and sell them on Craigslist or ebay or better yet do what I did and hand down your old tech to someone who is in need of it.
A:Answer The new iPad is marginally heavier than the iPad Pro, weighing in at 469 grams (or 478g for cellular), compared to the iPad Pro's 437 grams (or 444g for cellular). The new iPad is also 1.4mm thicker than the iPad Pro, which may be down to the larger battery.
