$329 iPad with Apple Pencil support: would you buy this?
by Preslav Kateliev / Mar 26, 2018, 9:32 AM
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!

Please Apple update the Mini with at least a A10x and Pencil support! Man that would be the most incredible thing to write notes on. However, if the 9.7 inch $329 Pencil supported iPad is actually happening, hopefully they made it thinner to feel more like a piece of paper. Come on Apple, Excited!

Apple is doing this to directly compete with ChromeOS. My concern is that an average Chromebook runs about 180-220 and this iPad will start at with 329 with 99$ pencil. This is going to be roughly twice the price the school will have to pay. It will be interesting to see how the sales go.

I love my Note 8, and it is primarily because of the stylus. So, I might be interested. The most frustrating thing about the stylus and Note 8 is the rounded screen. All Samsung would have to do is shrink the display off the rounded edges when the stylus is out (to make me happy) /or/ give the option to do that. But they don't. So a good other stylus device is an option for me.
