New iPad Pro review: can it replace your laptop?

  • Published on:  11/5/2018
  • Apple’s new iPad Pro is a beast of a tablet, and Nilay Patel reviews it -- everything from its new design and screen to plugging in several devices to the new USB-C port. Dami Lee and William Joel, professional creatives at The Verge, also give their insight into the new iPad and Apple Pencil.

    I could be excited about the new IPad Pro, however, after listening to your review/rant, I find that with the exception of the newer hardware, my 4 year old Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 has almost all of the features that you've complained about the 2018 IPad Pro still lacking! Using the cloud, and an SDcard, my tablet still screams with near bleeding edge performance and still gives me incredible performance capabilities as a prosumer device. Thanks so much for your honest review/rant of the IPad Pro.

    Great review! Many of the limitations Apple has in place are to force you to adapt to their proprietary eco system. Buy more and spend more. I have always liked their innovation but I am done with their limitations. Arrogance and greed have taken over. When my iphone 6 or my first gen ipad pro die, I’m gone.

    One of the biggest downsides for me is apples iOS continues to limit the usability of the hardware. Their constant refusal to support external drives and various 4K video codecs is infuriating. I can import and edit a 4K GoPro video, but not a 4K DJI drone video. This is stupid. Why go nuts on hardware specs when the software is intentionally designed to choke the life out of it?

    Muscle car. Benchmarks faster than God. $2,200!!! Can you open 3 word documents at the same time? No. 🤣 BTW, you know they were taking a giant piss when they told you Liquid Retina meant "rounded corners". They're now openly making fun of their customers. I love it 🤣

    How can apple say it can replace a laptop you can’t plug a mouse you can’t put a external hard drive. It’s more for watching video and movies so apple need to stop talking smack and stop saying this could replace your computer

    Do NOT use anything other than Nintendo official chargers to charge the Switch. The Switch doesn't use the common USB-C regulations. So theirs a chance anything that isn't Nintendo sanctioned may brick your switch or the charging port.
