That's what I thought too, but price won't be any cheaper as usual.

If you can tahan the screen on the new iPad then get it. Now cheaper, plus can support Pencil. iPad Pro 10.5 screen really so much more appealing. Gotta compare side by side to know the difference.

Laminated screen a lot of diff. In fact even iPad mini 4 uses laminated screen. The screen in ipad 2018 is 2014 tech. IPad Air 2 and Mini 4, pro lineup all using laminated screen. This A10 processor dunno use what graphics chip also. But for the price diff, still worth it if you compare basic model to basic pro model. If want get higher capacity and cellular and keyboard etc, Best is get pro. I am using 12.9. Inch iPad Pro 2nd gen really outperforms my surface pro 4 for media consumption

Interesting. Very good price. Just enough to complement the phone inside the house.

But is it still not laminated? will it matter? even its already retina display?

I've been looking for something to replace my 2012 MBP as a note taking device and this new ipad seems quite a tempting purchase since it supports apple pencil now.

Or perhaps should I wait for a new mb / mb air?

Laminated is a big diff. The non laminated screen is iPad Air 1 technology. No use one la
