Tablet for studying

Hello guys, need recommendations for tablet.

I will be using it for
-Read PDF files such as textbook, run powerpoint slides
-Stylus pen capability/add on for writing

-Screen size, the bigger the better (at least 9.7")

-Slow processor is fine as I don't play games or movies
-Will watch youtube video so need wifi
-No need camera
-No preference for OS but need to have reliable writing capability and file management such as OneNote.
-Touchpad keyboard will do

My budget is around $400. I am not particular about getting latest gen. Even if it's 2 years ago, will accept it if it fit my needs.

Please recommend if you have good experience with the tablets. Hopefully before 12 12.

Btw, are there any review websites that track tablet popularity or show the best rated tablet?

Used IPad pro 9.7 gen 1. Usually 400+ or less for base model wifi. Or camp Qoo10 for iPad 6th gen Korea set. Roughly ~$425.

Go Apple store online refurbished section to see if you can get suitable one. You get official 1 year warranty.

You'll have to consider whether the difference is worth the hassle with warranty. Unless can get Apple international warranty.

Bear in mind you may need to pay gst when buying from Amazon
