$498 for A10 + Apple pencil support is totally worth it. Price for student is $468.

Hope it launches during wwdc 18. Hope this ipad 2018 cannibalize the current 2017 ipp lineup to make Apple release the pro in June

If itís truly edgeless, lots of software engineering would be needed to know how to reject accidental touches.

Just like when the iPad mini was launched:
https://www.theverge.com/2012/10/23/...dental-touches
I think it is just the way we hold tablets that makes bezel-less impractical. Just pick up your tablet now and see how you will hold your tablet. You can hold it with one hand for sure, but your fingers will definitely be touching the bezel. I feel it is too much software work and potentially a problem to decide which is a genuine finger touch and which is an accidental one. Palm rejection perhaps is more straight forward.

I remember previously when I bought my MacBook using student price, I had to provide a valid student matriculation card to proof that I was a student. It involves scanning the student card and uploading it to them.

Tried valuing the trade in price for my old old iPad 2 16GB Wifi+3G. Only $55.

If i want the wifi+4G 32GB, it costs $668, not sure if it is worth it to get the one with 4G.?
Cos I have a free 1GB data SIM, it was given to me by mobile operator when i sign up their fibre broadband

I was thinking of upgrading my aging mini 4 to either this new 2018 iPad or the 10.5" iPad Pro by mid-year. Though I know the later is a lot more expensive with better features, it's also due soon for an updated model.
