    Torn between getting an iPad Air 256gb and an iPad Pro 128 gb.

    The thing is, I’ve been calling PMC branches and the Air stocks doesn’t seem to get replenished. Pro’s are available though.

    Anyone want to help me decide?

    This is just me, but between the 2, I'd get the pro. I think 256Gb is overkill for an iPad. 128Gb seems like the sweet spot.

    For me i will go with air 4 256gb.

    much cheaper ng konti but double the storage..
    But still it depends on your usage...
    Cause i think their biggest difference are ram, camera and refresh rate 120 hz...

    for me ksi all of these are tolerable..

    Thanks for the input guys.

    Jumped the gun when an Electroworld store nearby informed me they have an iPad Air 256gb Space Gray. Initially wanted the Sky Blue one but color doesn’t really matter because I’m just gonna slap it in a case

    Anyone know where to get a base model?

    Seems like everyone's out of stock at the moment. Just want a plain jane gray one.

    So finally, I got to try the iPad Air in person when I had to do errands in Rob Magnolia and there was a PMC there.

    Initially impression and feel - this is an iPad pro. I can barely tell the difference from the outside.

    But coming from Pro Motion, I can't help but see the jaggedness and that 60hz refresh rate when scrolling on the menu or websites. I initially thought that it was buggy and had to close all opened apps (as demo units, they're all usually filled with opened apps), but no, it was way less fluid than the pro models. I can't help but feel that it was a slower machine, even though we know that Air trumps Pro at the moment.

    It's going to be a very good iPad if you've never owned the Pro one, but for me whos looking to get an 11inch one soon, it will always be Pro.

    i've had my ipad air for a month now but I havent taken it out of my room since it's still naked. No case or sleeve that's available in BTB. I'm wary of ordering from lazada.

    where did you get your cases?

    Power Mac has the 2018 11-inch iPad Pro Smart Folio on sale. I bought one for my 4th-gen iPad Air and it fits perfectly.

    I've also seen some iPad Air 4 cases at Switch stores. But I opted for the Power Mac ones for 2018 iPad Pros because they're much cheaper.
