We have many of these at work and what I like about them is how light they are. If you just want a consumption device, its actually more than enough.

A very capable device. I wasted some $$$ getting the 5th gen iPad Air. The standard iPad would have been smarter.

If you click the link, you'll see MR links directly to the "Apple Store" from (below the item description, you'll see a "Visit the Apple Store" link. The legitimate seller is directly from - easiest way to confirm is when you look at the Buy Box on the right, you want "Ships from:, and Sold By:".
Amazon Puts Counterfeit items and real items into Sold and Shipped by, it's 50/50 if you get a real or a fake. Got scammed from "" and will never buy from them again.

Concerning the 9th Gen, has the 256 version more RAM than the 64?
No, the RAM is the same. Only the iPad Pros have 16GB off RAM on 1TB and above.
