Still the most recommended iPad for most people. A13 is still a fantastic chip. The nice thing about the A series chips being so ahead of most others on the market is even one that's a couple years old still competes with the top snapdragon chips out today. And because its all apple hardware and software, they are able to optimize it to run great for years.

My mom uses an iPad as her only computer at home, I replaced her iPad 5th gen with a 9th gen last year and she loves it. She still uses her 5th gen, now she has an upstairs iPad for her bedroom to watch some shows and keeps the new one in the main area as her computer lol.

I ended up getting this last year. I was initially lamenting not springing for the 256 GB, but at the same time, I didn't want to pay an extra $150 for it. AFAIK, the 256 GB is also on sale, but, sold out? Apple Arcade ended up being a wrench in the works (some games are 2 GB to 10 GB, apiece!). I otherwise would be fine on storage. I ended up taking a break from AA, found a bunch of games outside that to keep me occupied (on iPad and Android), and haven't looked back. I wouldn't mind getting back into AA, but it's a very low priority for the time being.

Ditto. I use mine as a glorified gaming device, so no need for me to shell out any more money. May use it for internet, but if I'm at home, I use my desktop PC. If on the road, I'll have my Chromebook on my for heavier sessions, or just use my phone for "quickies".

Is this a 10th gen ipad? Looking to upgrade daugter's ipad potentially

NVM -- is a 9th gen
Huh? 10th generation ipad doesn't exist yet. This is the current version and a fantastic deal.
Only thing is wifi only--cellular model not available (I always buy the cell model for the GPS chip).
