$329 iPad with Apple Pencil support: would you buy this?
Apple's iPad Pro line is defined by its super-powered tablets, the great accessories that go with them, and the expensive laptop-grade prices. Yeah, while the Apple Pencil is an amazing proprietary stylus, great for artists, designers, and those who like to write by hand, it's exclusive to a limited group of customers — those that are capable and willing to cough up the dough.

However, we've been hearing an interesting rumor over the past couple of days. Apparently, Apple is preparing a new edition of its cheap iPad (starting price $329) that will support the Apple Pencil (or a different version of the Apple Pencil). Said device duo is supposed to be unveiled at the event tomorrow.

The purported affordable iPad + Pencil will be launching in Q3 of this year, just in time for the new school year. Now, assuming that's true, it sounds like a pretty cool deal. The Apple Pencil, paired with an iPad, really is one of the best styli out there, and dropping the price of entry so low will definitely allow a lot more of the users that are interested get one.

Would you be interested in one such offer?

Would you buy the cheap iPad 9.7 if it supported Apple Pencil?

Nope, I would rather save up for an iPad Pro
No, I don't care about the Apple Pencil and its features
Oh yeah! Sounds great!
