Ipad Pro 9.7
I've seen a couple on kijiji, but they are'n cheep enough to make it reasonable to take the chance.
Thanks in advance.

It'd say it's a bit much, especially if its only for a side business. For now, I'd make do with a cheaper alternative, but keep an eye out if they happen to go on sale.

Illustration? Page layout? Graphic Design?
That will determine whether an iPad Pro is a good fit for her. The cheaper alternative is a desktop machine (or laptop) with a Wacom tablet (or equivalent). Does she need portability?
As you said it can be a lot of $$$, so I’d look at all available options.
If she’s a student she may be able to get a educational discount, if purchased through her school.

That's what my initial thought was and if I can find one with a receipt or Applecare I'll consider it. Been burnt by BNIB once.

:face palm: I guess it depends on what your needs are. She draws and the tools that come with this give her the closest feeling to "the real thing" that she's found. I'm very glad you scored a deal that met your needs.

Personally I think it is crazy to spend that much on ARM. Do you think that is a crazy price for an i5 Surface Pro?
The most I've spent on an iPad was $700 and that was from kijiji
I spent $400 on my Nexus 9

I checked it out, nothing there. I like the refurb store and have scored some great deals. I'm on one now. She does a lot of sketching and it's that application in conjunction with the pencil action that she desires.

Again, it all goes back to what you plan on doing with it. Would an iPad Air suffice?
A good place to look is the apple refurb store. They may have a few…

Given the wide range of tasks, I'd be inclined to go for a Macbook (or a desktop/ laptop setup) over an iPad. But if she's decided to go the iPad route, then I'd look at the Apple Refurb Store.
