It's curious how size changes everything. If you think about it, the iPad Pro runs the same software essentially as your iPhone. Scale it up to it's present proportions and it becomes a different device entirely. Something that you have to see to believe. I remember thinking i won't buy the iPad, it after all is simply "an iPhone on steroids" then buying it immediately when I saw it in the store.

the iPad Pro is similar. There are some critical differences though:

1. Swiping from the right side of the screen enables split screen. Very useful. I'd like to be able to run a mouse though. I could never cut and paste with my finger quite as effectively or drag and drop without a mouse.

2. Installing a LTE SIM (RM15 per month via Maxis) allows me to use the same data plan than usually remains underused and means I am now connected everywhere

3. Accessing my networked hard drive in bed to watch downloaded content (read: torrents) is amazing with the four speakers of this fella

4. Reading Magazines and Books is the closest thing to paper ever. Better cos you don't need to switch on the bedside light. You might think that not having to scroll is a small thing. It is NOT.

5. This thing is blazingly fast. With optimized software. Something that Microsoft with the Surface simply fail to understand after all these years: it's not enough to have killer hardware. You cripple the software and it's still a lemon.

This is going to be a runaway success. Even more so when the installed software base catches up to the new capabilities of the machine.

if you are not into drawing, 3D, CAD, illustrations etc. the answer is NO. Honestly, i dont think many ppl need the iPad Pro, have good use of it or gain much value from it at this stage, very niche product. something like Mac Pro.

For me personally and my specific needs, i have been waiting for this iPad and the pencil for almost 5 years already!

good point. i think the only justification for me to get the pencil (or the pro even) will be easier highlight and copy pasta biggrin.gif

you might want to listen to this

i ll give my thoughts soon, haven't got time to test it fully and still waiting for my pencil to arrive tomorrow to give it a good spin. So far (3 days), its been fantastic for me to browse the web, magazines and comics! ipad air feels like iphone 5s after you have been using 6s+ for awhile lol

Thanks bro.
I'm getting one soon.
I was hoping that Apple release the smart case like the iPad Air and Air 2, but they came up with silicone case and also smart cover.
Hahah.
