Oct'2022: Andy Matuschak: I'd endorse the oldest iPad Pro which supports the Apple Pencil 2—the 2018 models. The 120Hz display makes a big diff for inking, and the 2nd-gen Pencil is much better, but the rest of the hardware changes since 2018 don't matter much.
May'2012: Dave Winer prefers his old one. The other day, with the battery running down, I had an idea. I charged up my old iPad, so it would serve as a backup, next time the battery ran down on the new iPad. And the next day I got to use it, and here's the thing -- I like it better than the new one! It's lighter, the battery lasts longer, and when it runs down it charges much more quickly. Having gotten used to the new iPad, the old one feels like an upgrade!
