    A decision that will be much lamented.

    Is there perceptible parallax compared to previous iPadpro line up?

    You did say there's an airgap. I don't think they are going to be this sloppy.

    All i want to know about is IAF and refresh rate on the new ones.

    By definition, if the screen isn't laminated there will be some gap.

    That used to be the case with EMR too. Earlier, EMR = parallax. But then things changed. Same could have happened to ipad display.

    I am still hopeful that Apple is keeping things like ProMotion display and parallax free handwriting on this one too.

    There are three things that is keeping me from buying Apple iPad series -
    • Low polling rate of digitizer (120Hz is not enough, SamsungTabS3 digitizer polls at 360 Hz and still can only preserve 93% of handwriting detail)
    • Lack of mouse and right click function
    • No DrawboardPDF application

    New EMR devices from Samsung are all laminated/optically bonded.

    That's what i meant when i said-
    But anyways, one thing is certain,
    Apple has definitely left Microsoft, Wacom, Google and their hardware partners in the dust when it comes to education tabletPC market with its $300 ipad+$100pencil combo. Microsoft and other windows tablet manufacturers rarely have anything below the $700 pricepoint. Google may have the smartest search engine but it definitely has the stupidest product team - who thought releasing a $1000 Chromebook was a good idea. And that $700 to $1100 pc/chromeChro market rarely has pen bundled in the package.

    Hopefully Samsung being a much smarter marketing force will come to senses a release a $400 windows home convertible in 10.5" size. I might not be buying this iPad for myself, but it's definitely something I am gonna gift to my mother and my neice. The only personal display enabled consumer tech both these ladies have ever used is a touch based device, their life doesn't depend on iWork or MSoffice. App versions of Onenote, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Google search is all they need.

    I have nothing but praise for Apple for being the unlikely agent of democratizing quality digital inking by bringing the second best pen technology in the world to the most affordable and yet usable tablet PC there is.

    Apple has successfully created the gateway drug to digital inking.

    I guess we should make this the official iPad2018 thread and make it sticky.
