Looks like the USB-C iPad with 256GB at US$599 is the sweet spot for djay Pro users. Not really an upgraded base-level iPad, it’s really more of a budget iPad Air.
In Europe we’re f*cked though, as Apple increased prices by approximately 20% store-wide. Thank Putin for that.
With the higher European prices, a used 4th gen. iPad Air might be more cost effective. It’s basically the same thing.
