This beautiful 9.7 inch iPad barely breaks the €200 mark, with 16GB of internal storage and a 1.4GHz Processor. You could say this would be perfect for office workers and students.

The iPad Air is lightweight and slim, around 7.5mm thickness, and comes with useful pre-installed Apple apps for both personal and professional use. The size and lightness means it is the perfect iPad for working on the go, surfing the web, and all for an extremely low price.
3: iPad Pro 12.9”
Screen size: 12.9-inch | RAM: 4 GB | Storage: 128 GB | Chip: A10X Fusion chip with 64‑bit architecture | Rear camera: 12 MP | Front camera: 7 MP
Looking for a bigger screen and storage? Then the iPad Pro 12.9” with 128 GB of internal storage is perfect for you, with more than enough memory for capturing moments with loved ones this Christmas season. With an auto-focus 8 MP camera, this season will definitely be one to remember.
The larger screen means better screen presentation for videos with four speakers adding an enhanced sound experience. Enjoy recording videos with its 1080p HD video at 30 Frames Per Second.
iPad Pro 12.9” may be a bit large in size. If you want something smaller with practically the same specs, check out its little brother, the iPad Pro 9.7”.

A 32GB internal storage and a retina screen display with its glorious four speakers make it perfect for games, videos and movies, to say the least.
So, if you are a gamer, an artist or just a general gadget lover, the iPad Pro will surely be your new best friend.
