64GB is plenty if all you do is browsing, reading and doodling.
Then one must really ask oneself "Do I need a $600 tablet for browsing and reading and doodling"? There are certainly MUCH cheaper choices for such basic tasks.

But one could argue “I want best browsing experience, reading experience and doodling experience”, which this $600 iPad probably can’t deliver that level experience. It’s a tricky balance only the buyer know.
Even so, if that were all you wanted it for, the $329 iPad could do all that with pretty much the same experience.

Best Buy’s sale has the same discount on both capacities and unlocked cellular models, not just the 64 GB Wi-fi.

When I bought the IPad Air 4 64GB this past summer on discount, I considered the iPad, but I’ll mostly read and highlight on it, and the screen is far superior on iPad Air. True Tone makes for a much more comfortable reading experience, and pencil 2 is much more convenient than pencil 1.
