The sale price on these is about $50 too high for this device in general. This thing should be a $299 device that goes on sale for $150-$200.

$50 off is the lowest price ever?

My mother in law is ready to replace her Mini 2, but if the biggest discount "ever" just before a potential Mini 6 comes out that may or may not have face ID and looses the home button is $50. We'll wait.

what's the difference between an iPad and an iPad pro regarding the use of apple pen? are both within the same resolution for drawing/graphic design?
iPad Pro models that support the 2nd gen Apple Pencil give you the benefit of secondary click support when using the Pencil. That's important if you want to use the Sidecar feature in macOS Catalina and use your iPad as a secondary screen for your Mac or MacBook. A lot of macOS based applications have functions that require the secondary click, so you're not going to get full functionality with iPad models that only support a 1st gen Pencil.
