  1. The ipad pro is absolutely worthless unless you use it with pen. I tried it and let me tell you, it is the best drawing experienceI ever had and as am artist, that is way worth the price. I tried the others too but dont come close. If you disagree you probably are not an artist and havent tried.

  2. The iPad Pro is faster than a 2014 Mac mini with Dual core Intel-i5 CPU.

    Here are some geekbench mark comparisons.
    ( As you can see when it comes to performance, Apple computers are over priced Art work ).

  3. Apple will end up with it's "Surface" version. this was a lost opportunity of doing so. A designer will need to run ilustrator, photoshop, etc. On this device, no chance.
    Just a bigger and more powerful ipad, but still just an iPad. And Expensive.

  4. I might have considered buying an ipad if they had included that keyboard and pencil within the price of that ipad pro. That would make sense, it would feel like using the portable computer of the future, pencil replacing mouse. Wow? wouldn't that be great!! hahah but its just the ipad pro..a giant screen garbage !

  5. I just bought the iPad pro 4 days ago and someone roughed me up for it, I didn't call the police because he sexually abused my nutsack by foundling it for a full 27 minutes. I'm gonna buy another one next week, this time, I'm gonna put duck tape around it so it doesn't look like an iPad pro.

  6. the only outstanding thing about this product is the pencil… at the end of the day, its just another ipad… apple is gradually loosing the INNOVATION game to microsoft.. If you are a true apple fan, the best way to get apple to see this truth is to reject this product. There is no way in hell apple can justify that price with a mobile OS… No way

  7. CNET, Theverge, BGR etc are sites that praises anything that has the half bitten apple logo on it. Am really surprised by this review. The reviewer  just said It like he mean it straight up.. Am pretty much sure he didn't sip a glass of apple kool aid before reviewing this extra large ipad.

  8. Apple makes marketing claims that iPad Pro can edit three 4K videos simultaneously. I have a query.. How do you transfer large video/photo files from external camera to iPad? Or is it only for the built-in camera?

  10. Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is the answer! It's got a better (and included) pen with different options for the feeling of the tip. Full power with Windows 10. Kickstand included in the body of the tablet. Really great

  11. professional graphic designers use computers, with large amounts of RAM and that's not going to change anytime soon. Try designing a full size vehicle wrap or billboard on an iPad for real world production. Good luck.

  12. $1216 for a miniature laptop that's capable of a only a mere fraction of the actual tasks a cheap pc laptop is capable of these days. Who are the people dumb enough to buy such crap?! If you need a real tablet for graphics buy a cheap laptop, then a high end wacom tablet and acquire even an obsolete version of Photoshop/Illustrator and then compare. needless to say this is an overpriced toy and can't even compete with obsolete pc laptops running obsolete software instead of "apps".

  13. It's cool and all for like a designer or something but it will never replace a laptop. There's so much more you can do on a laptop than this giant iPad. Btw the only thing I use my iPad is to read books and browse the web and YouTube.

  14. Here in Singapore, the Apple website says on the "Buy" page that you can only buy 2 per customer. Does that mean Apple's supply is very limited or they haven't got enough units to sell yet?

  15. I don't like it because of its size! But that's just me, I like smaller, slim smooth products. The only thing I like big is my mobile phone because it's portable and I use it for watching videos just about anywhere and that's it, just a preference, you know?

  16. Great review and frankly that is truly the issue with large tablets of any type. Now they refuse to make them, but for me a high end tablet running both Android and Windows 10 is the answer to the high costs, otherwise why waste your money on just a limited, but expensive OS.
