@jeremycherfas I had a low-end iPad about 3 years ago and found it excellent except for one thing: the screen wasn’t laminated so sounded hollow and a bit noisy when I tapped on it. A less noticeable effect of the absence of lamination was that the items onscreen didn’t seem to be directly under my finger. I don’t know whether they’ve improved the screens since. The screen certainly wasn’t a deal-breaker for me.
