Yeah I think the iPad Pro 2020 128gb is the better deal. Can find deals online for about 1149 which makes it only $150 more than the iPad Pro 2018 256gb.

For 2gb more ram, slightly better CPU and better graphics and camera/mic and wifi speed.

Itís makes a lot of sense to go for the iPad Pro 2020 despite lower capacity. Quite sure I wonít be using until 256gb of storage.

I bought the 2018 IPP 11Ē and spent the price diff between it and the 2020 IPP 11Ē on Apple Pencil.

Donít rly need to LIDAR and WIFI 6, and no use for the extra 2GB ram. Unless you use graphic intensive app like Photoshop or Lumafusion

If you are student, price is $1129 on edu store for 2020 11" 128GB. Best to wait for back to school promo, they will give free Beats that you can sell for $100+.

Haaichi Tech and a lot of places are clearing the 2018 IPad Pro for a really good price as they are discountinued. These people on Carousell are mostly scalping to earn quick bucks from these online deals.

If you wanna write note only can just get the iPad 2019 With Apple Pencil 1. Itís is a whole lot cheaper than even the iPad Air 3.

Thanks for the suggestion! yeah it kinda makes sense to me to get the older model especially since i can save a few hundred dollars in the process, thinking of getting a refurbished model once it goes back in stock on the apple website to save even more

Only bugbear is that iPad 2019 has a non-laminated screen, so in between your pencil and the screen itself you will feel a slight "gap"

Lucky you. Hard to find deals for 12.9, always seems to run out. There was the 256 12.9 for $1099 as well.

Yeah. I was contemplating for quite some time. It initially went oos for a few days and then stocks came in again.

Should check from time to time. Maybe will have.
