iPad 9th generation
Pretty great device at $329. Compared to the $599 Air, which is roughly the same size:
* worse CPU
* better front camera (probably for Center Stage); worse rear camera
* old pencil, no Magic Keyboard, etc.
* not laminated, which is both a pro (easier maintenance) and a con (looks worse)
* no wide color
* no Smart HDR
* no 4K video recording
The Air is (mostly) nicer, but it's not great that they've decided against upgrading it. In spring, when they introduced the iPad Pro and the iMac, it was like "here's Center Stage! And here's a computer where that feature would make a lot of sense, but… it doesn't have it!" Now, in fall, they introduce Center Stage on both the $329 iPad and the iPad mini — but don't upgrade the Air. So now the Air is the odd one out that doesn't have it, among the iPads. Stupid.
On the bright side, like I said, it's a pretty damn good tablet at $329.

This is the one my son is chomping at the bit to buy. He is ready for an upgrade and he is saving his money for this one. I don't know if he has enough yet since I'm "at work" right now and dealing with "things". I'm sure once I get off and go upstairs though he will tell me if he has enough and beg me to order it NOW.
He's even going to go for the storage bump. His goal is gaming on it without breaking the bank, since he is buying it after all.
I'm looking forward to seeing how much he likes it once he does get it.
