I want buy an iPad only for taking handwrinting notes in the university lessons. I'm not an artist, so I don't draw. Is better iPad air 2+Adonit Pixel stylus or iPad pro+Pencil?

Thank you guys for answers.

My honest opinion would be iPad Pro 9.7 with Pencil. It's not as expensive as the 12" iPad Pro and works just as well. The reason I would recommend the Pro and Pencil is that the Pencil works so much better especially for handwriting. There is almost zero lag.
