What is the best buy for the current iPad models between the current and past generations of iPads for the regular user?

As an owner of 3 iPads (and immediate family has 3 more), I'd say M1 Air @ $449 is best value in the line up, now. You can certainly expect a lot of the 11" Magic Keyboards to come up on the used market.

The only caveat - if you do a lot of FaceTime, the landscape camera on the 10th gen @ $349 might make more sense.

$599.00 ('https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09V3JDWSL?tag=mrforums-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1') for the 256GB Wi-Fi iPad Air
Now this is a pretty good deal, especially for people who don't need a larger screen or the power of the M2 chip. ?

If/when they start discounting the 10th gens similar to like they did with the 9th gens ($330>$250) then the 10th gen is going to be a hell of a deal. Several improvements for $20 more

Record discount unless you consider the $399 deal for 64GB Starlight at Best Buy a week or so ago.
I jumped on that and plan to keep it considering the updates don't impact what I use it for very much.

The only thing that I don't like about my current M1 Air is that it only has 64 gigs of memory. It hasn't been a huge problem yet, but I'm tired of having to constantly delete things. That said, ugh. Upgrading just to have more storage just won't be happening. I just can't justify the expense for what I use this iPad for... I wasn't planning on putting a lot on here, but messages and photos and everything else just balloon out to these insane sizes.

I was holding out for my iPad Mini 5 to be upgraded and that didn't happen so I have to choose with what's left to choose from. Thanks.
The mini is scheduled to receive an update before the end of the year, so maybe you can wait until then. Otherwise the M1 iPad Airs on sale now are perfectly fine for the next few years for regular users.
