iPad vs Wacom for sketching

Macintoshian Achaia - Ars Technica OpenForum - arstechnica.com
So, my very creative, 14 year old daughter has been loving using Autodesk Sketchbook on her cheap Android tablet to do sketching. She has been using just her finger and producing amazing results...

Anyway, she said she would like to get something with a stylus to get more serious about it. I know some of the people she follows online use one of the stand-alone Wacoms (I forget which Wacom lets you use it just as a tablet) and she is interested in that.

I had her try my iPad Pro but she didn't take to that, immediately. I am speculating because the feel was too slick and "unpaper-like". As an aside, I am thinking about getting a screen protector to make it feel more like paper.

Does anyone have thoughts on the best setup for casual sketching for a teenager? It seems iPad Pro + pencil is cheaper but is it a better experience for sketching? I have exactly zero experience with any and all Wacom products.

I have googled around a bunch and it seems that the results are all over the board so I'm hoping for some personal anecdotes
