    "I don't want to adapt to my computer, I want my computer to adapt to me." THIS IS THE BEST LINE IN ANY REVIEW.Brutal review here. I love it. These are the issues that have always kept me from getting one.

    I think apple should start developing a system that could use the iPad Pro to its full potential. Like as mouse and trackpad support. They should come up with something revolutionary like the surface dial of the iPhone X except on iPad pro

    It's a shame about the software. I have a 2017 12.9 pro and I never came close to the limits of the A10x processor. This A12x is great and all but just a gimmick at this point as there isn't one app to take advantage of that properly.

    my biggest complaint when i bought it too. I look through the app store, but noothing can take advantage of power

    the real apple innovators are jailbreak community

  • Simple...Do you draw? - Get an iPad Pro. You don’t draw? - Get a laptop

    Uh dude ur so stupid

    This video is a perfect summary of the iPad Pro. In its current state it is a professional device for professionals and creatives who are using it for a specific purpose and are in a setting where the cost for that purpose is worth it. I think Apples biggest mistake is trying to half market it as a laptop/desktop replacement because while sure certain types of workflow can take advantage of this, the average user may see this and get frustrated when they try to use it as their one and only device (unle...

    Best review I have seen so far!

    Finally, a not-overenthusiastic, systematic, comprehensive review of this thing from a professional's perspective. Thumbs up Nilay!

    Just about to say ijustine

    This would be an instant buy for me if it would support desktop apps…

    Just need Logic and I'd buy, the thought of music creation with an LTE enabled device is godly.

  • Too expensive and has limitations, we can buy a cool windows tablet and have better experience.

    Luis Alberto Pérez Nájera windows ??? Yuk

  • Josh Dillon (Nov 9, 2018)

    Summary: "go back to a real computer"... exactly. I'm ten times more productive with desktop apps like Outlook, with accessories like a mouse, as well as real file and external storage management.
