There are a ton of reasons why you'd want an iPad and not anything else. We'll give you just one reason - iPadOS. The software alone is the biggest reason why you should get an iPad as it gives you access to the best apps and games that offer best in class entertainment and productivity.
The entry level Apple iPad features a large 10.2-inch Retina display which is nice and bright. Thanks to support for Apple Pencil, you can write down stuff as you would on paper, except it's way smoother.
Powering the iPad is the powerful A13 Bionic chip. This is the first time ever the entry level iPad is getting machine learning capabilities thanks to dedicated cores in the A13 Bionic chip itself.
You also get a pair of great cameras on the iPad. They are perfect for scanning documents, making FaceTime calls and so much more. Of course, you can be that guy at a concert who records everything on an iPad.
Rounding everything off is the Touch ID fingerprint sensor Home button. It's perfect for unlocking the iPad or authenticating payments.
