    iPad Pro 2017 is your budget option if you are not interested in the latest features. Though It is smaller with a less up-to-date process than 2018’s Pro. I do not recommend you old iPad models because of the speed.

    I have purchased 5 refurbished Apple Products and have never had an issue and quite honestly since I'm frugal its the only way I purchase

    I couldn't disagree more. Apples refurbished goods carry the same warranty as brand new. We've purchased a number of them, and you cannot even tell they were ever out of the box. Haven't had a problem yet. I encourage anyone to purchase refurbs from Apple, and save a lot of money. With their warranty, there really is no reason not to.

    We have only ever purchase, since the iPad came out, Apple refurbished or a used product on Swappa that still has some Apple warranty left. Swappa is a great source of used products, and, we only ever buy mint condition stuff. Got an iPad pro for 30% of list price as an example in mint condition with warranty remaining, which allows me to get a problem resolves if there is one. You have to be patient and wait for the right unit the used method. For the refurb method, you buy and go. Same warranty, and you can even add Applecare. We've probably purchased around a dozen used or refurbs over the years. And then we end up selling them when we "upgrade". Some of them have cost us $0, as, we sold them for the same amount we purchased them for.

    I have the large iPad Pro. I use it so much more than my laptop now. You can get a key board for it. It is light and easy to travel with. I got it mainly to help my eyes but I find I love it.

    Me too, long ago I got rid of any laptop and I replaced it with the 12.9" Pro. I did all my programming and consulting work on it, MySQL admin, system admin, IPMI, you name it. I found there was no longer a need to haul a laptop around at all. Despite the claims by many you cannot replace a laptop with a tablet. Of course, I did carry a bluetooth keyboard.
