Apple ipad 9.7in
£339 from www.snipca.com/24079 Tested: Issue 500
The replacement for the ipad Air 2 is slightly bulkier and has a downgraded screen but remains the best mid-sized tablet, with a sensible 32GB of storage. You’ll need the £619 ipad Pro if you want to use the Pencil stylus (£99).
ALTERNATIVE: ipad Mini 4 The smaller 7.9in ipad is excellent, but Apple’s decision to sell it only with a huge 128GB makes it unreasonably expensive. £419 from www.snipca.com/24080
