    I'm planning to buy an iPad pro refurbished from apple and originally was set on the 64GB 10.5 inch (wifi only) but now have realised if I go for the slightly older 9.7 inch version I could save some money.

    The 64GB 10.5 is £530
    The 32GB 9.7 is £440 (this would save so much money but I'm worried about having only 32GB? At the same time, I'll be storing and backing everything up to OneDrive probably so if it gets full I can just delete everything).
    The 128GB 9.7 is £510

    I'd love to just get the 32GB 9.7 as it's the cheapest but 32GB might be a possible issue. I could get the 128GB 9.7 but it's only just slightly cheaper than the 10.5 (64GB and above is plenty for me) so it makes me think I could spend just an extra £20 to get a newer (and potentially slightly better?) model.

    I'm not sure

    I did think that but when I looked at the two in real life, the size difference was so small to me i don't know if it would matter that much to me? idk

    If the 12.9" iPad Pro you're looking at is a first generation model, the only difference between the two size models are the display size/res, some extra RAM and the battery size- everything else is the same. In this case I would just pickt he screen size you prefer- 13" is too large to use comfortably a tablet for me, but you might like it. If it's a second generation (the current generation) model, you will get an internal spec bump too but how much better that is depends on what you'll use the tablet for and how much you value the extra storage.
