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

Earlier on I was comparing both the Proís full laminated display against the 2018 iPad without the full laminated display. Honestly there IS indeed a difference between the two and definitely the laminated one looks better, though the difference isnít drastic.

I think Apple is slowly opening up the gap between iPad and iPad Pro

iPad (entry level) - everyone can afford. Entry specs, non laminated
iPad Pro (business or expert level) - price high. High end specs. Laminated screen

Just like car. Suck thumb one. U want a better car, fork out more $. I went to the shop to have a look. Seriously u canít tell the difference. When we use iPad, we are focused on the content rather than the screen. Just like Oled and 4K. My friend swore how good oled black color is but who cares.

Not really. If take 128GB wifi model, mini is $598 compared to the iPadís $648. Taking the iPadís larger screen size as extra cost, both are around similar priced.

I absolutely love the mini's size. Actually I was hoping there's a 'mini Pro' haha...but I suppose it'll never come. I'll still keep my mini 4 even after I get my new iPad, but the new one still need to wait until after WWDC in early June.

If you use the built-in speakers a lot, the stereo sound is tons better

The 'Pro' designation has its advantages over a regular product, usually featuring more advanced hardware.

Cost between the regular iPad and the 10.5" Pro (base model) is almost double.
